Our Signature Service

There is an entire industry of restoration companies offering to present your claim to insurance and then complete the approved repairs. However, their quality will be determined by both their ability to win the claim and the quality of their work and building products.

STEEL IMAGE ranks #1 in these two most important service categories:

 

  • GREATEST CLAIM APPROVAL RATE OF NEARLY 90%, AND

  • HIGHEST QUALITY ROOF WITH 50 YEAR WARRANTY THROUGH #1 BRAND GAF

Our team utilizes a combination of weather data, on-site evidence collection, and a database of prior claims to first determine whether you have a winnable claim.

This provides you with an account of what happened to your property and what is needed to restore it, how to file the claim, the appropriate date which caused the damage, and then our team handles the investigation and assessment of the proper repair with your insurance company (if they will allow us).

Once your insurer issues payment, we install the highest quality roof system in the country, including most extras that every other restoration company charges as “upgrades”. This includes GAF Timberline HDZ shingles, new metal flashings, lifetime accessories, ice and water shielding in valleys, along gutters, behind flashing, and GAF’s 50-year warranty.

The bill is sent to your insurance company for everything except your deductible, so long as you’ll help us seek full payment.

If your claim is not approved, there is no cost at all.

Understanding Insurance Claims

A handful of fundamental knowledge nuggets can alleviate common reservations with the claim process:

Claims are intentionally difficult to understand and navigate. You MUST hire a professional to know whether you’re getting a fair shake.

You insure your property from sudden loss “events”. Ongoing issues can’t be claimed, and multiple events can’t be claimed together.

Insurance is just a promise to reimburse you for damages. Filing a claim is saying you have suffered a loss and asking the insurance company to fulfill their promise to restore that loss.

We buy insurance to use it when needed. You’re not going to be punished for using a service you purchased, and you should not hesitate to file a legitimate claim.

Your insurance agent is not your insurance company. You are not going to offend them by claiming something after years of paying your end of the agreement.

All property is to some extent of aged or deteriorated. Not claiming storm-damage to your property because you feel it’s too old is not a good financial decision. It functioned properly before something caused damage.

Insurance will try to control the investigation and conversation. This includes trying to dictate what is considered “damaged”, how to repair the damage (even if their repair doesn’t fix the problem), and the price of the needed repairs.

Who decides what is damage, how to repair, and how much it costs? Answer: the same professional who decides all of this if you weren’t going through insurance. Insurance companies don’t send knowledgeable professionals – they send agents of their business to mitigate their losses.

Why shouldn’t I let the insurance company handle everything? Because sometimes your adjuster was a server at Applebees last week, and their manager is trying to show good numbers to climb the company ladder.
