Hail Damage – Commercial Insurance Claims
In a matter of seconds, a hailstorm can cause considerable damage to your roof, siding, and other exposed property. Surprisingly, to the untrained eye, a simple physical inspection of your business often results in an assessment that no damage has been sustained; a more careful examination and testing should be completed immediately. If your commercial property sustained roof damage, it is best to have it repaired before additional leaks occur and cause more harm to the property.
After you notify your insurance company of your loss, they will send an insurance adjuster to evaluate the level of damage you have sustained. It is in your best interest to contact a hail damage expert who will inspect your commercial property with your rights under your insurance policy as the focus. The public adjusters at Goodman-Gable-Gould/Adjusters International are trained on how to physically inspect a roof to assess the full extent of hailstorm damage.
Our public adjusters can help by:
- Fully reviewing your insurance coverage;
- Determining policy compliance issues;
- Developing a claim management strategy;
- Completing detailed valuations of building, equipment and inventory losses;
- Formulating business interruption models;
- Assembling comprehensive claim presentations with expert reports; and
- Expediting the insurance claims entire process.
Our public adjusters work exclusively for the policyholder—not the insurance company—enabling us to act in your best interest. As your advocate, we ensure that both you and your business’ hail damage claim are treated fairly by the insurance company.
Who have we helped?
Had you been handling and guiding the preparation and presentation of all our damage estimates from the beginning, our recovery could have been far greater. I speak from experience when I say that estimates given “off the cuff” and without consideration of all the insurance policy’s provisions can come back to haunt you.
