Roofing Contractors and General Contractors

Importance of Qualified Contractor In Calculating Damages

Roofing Contractors or General Contractors are often times hired by homeowners or business property owners following a property loss. While some states—including Texas—prohibit a contractor from negotiating a claim with an insurance company on behalf of the policyholder, it is still common for homeowners or commercial property owners to hire a qualified roofing contractor or general contractor to prepare an estimate of the visible or anticipated damages for a reported loss. In fact, insurance companies will very often request that the property owner provide their own repair estimate in the event any questions or disputes arise during the claims process. Accordingly, the use of a qualified and experienced contractor by a homeowner or business property owner following a covered property loss can be of great value in ensuring that the insurance company pays the full amount owed under the insurance policy.
