As a result of Hurricane Irma, our firm received many calls from clients who were notified by their insurance companies that their roof claim had been denied due to little or no damage, or that the amount paid was under their deductible.
On September 10, 2017 Hurricane Irma left a destructive path through the entire peninsula of Florida and left many in the Keys without homes and others up the coast suffering extreme wind damage to their roofs and property.
In addition to the extensive amount of uprooted trees and shrubs littering neighborhoods and streets, there were many, many roofs that were torn apart and demolished.
Upon our inspection of the very same roof claim that was denied, we discovered that not to be true at all.
The amount of properties with roof damage we encountered was extensive.
Since this hurricane event was so widespread with over a million directly affected, property insurance companies recruited independent adjusters from every corner of the country.
The insurance companies also granted anyone with a professional license of any kind in their home states an emergency adjusters license without having any experience whatsoever to help them field the claims.
This was a shocking revelation that put policy holders at a terrible disadvantage.
Many of these adjusters were either inexperienced or completely overwhelmed with the number of claims they were required to adjust on a daily basis that it was nearly impossible to give each claim the attention it deserved.
During the times when we met with these adjusters at our inspection appointments, we found them lacking knowledge and fearful of climbing and walking on top of the roofs, which is absolutely necessary to complete a comprehensive roof inspection.
If you believe your roof may have sustained wind damage from Hurricane Irma, there is still time to file a claim.
