The Insurance Process

Wind, Hail or Rain Damage?

Here is how our process works:

  • Call Castle Rock Restoration (1-855-U GOT HAIL) to schedule an appointment with one of our trained representatives.
  • At the time of the appointment we will thoroughly inspect your property for hail damage, wind damage, etc.
  • We will assist you with contacting your insurance company to report the loss.
  • We will prepare a detailed report of all the damage, including hail damage, and an itemized evaluation to repair your property to its pre-loss condition.
  • We will meet with your insurance company adjuster to discuss the necessary storm, wind, or hail damage repairs.
  • Your insurance company will complete an estimate and issue a payment as necessary.
  • We will review your insurance company's estimate to make sure it covers all the damage and associated repair costs.
  • We will sit down with you to discuss the insurance company's estimate and provide building material samples.
  • We will prepare a detailed work order/contract based on the building materials you choose.
  • We will schedule a date for the renovations to commence.
  • We will complete the storm, wind, or hail damage repairs.
  • We will submit the appropriate documentation to your insurance company to assist you with recovering the depreciation.
  • We will ensure that the only out-of-pocket expense you'll be responsible for is your deductible.


The Inspection

The adjuster will look at your property during working hours, so you probably won't be home when the damage assessment is taking place, which means you have no input in the matter. We ask that you allow us to represent you during the inspection. The adjuster will inspect your roof and exterior of your home for visible signs of damage only. In most cases the adjuster will measure out a "Test Square" (10' x 10') on different sections of your roof. If he can find a sufficient amount of bruises or breaks for each "Test Square," (usually only 7 or 8 are required) the insurance company will buy you a new roof.


How Insurance Companies Pay on a Claim

In most cases, about a week after the adjuster has assessed your property, you will receive your first check. This is most commonly called the ACV (Actual Cash Value). This check should represent the actual cost to repair or replace the damaged areas only, minus depreciation. The age and condition of the property is taken into account when calculating this depreciation. After repairs have been completed, the insurance company will issue a check for the RECOVERABLE depreciation, provided the cost of the repairs exceed the amount of your deductible and the initial claim payment. The amount of recoverable depreciation will be based on the lesser amount of the adjuster’s estimate or the actual cost incurred on damaged areas only. There is a way to receive the total settlement payment WITHOUT depreciation. Many people never get the depreciation amount back because they do not understand the process or the contractor they chose didn’t follow the proper procedures.

WHEN THIS HAPPENS, YOU HAVE TO PAY THE DIFFERENCE. THIS CAN COST YOU THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS or, you will have to suffer with inferior quality. We’ve seen it countless times.

We can offer a COMPLETE repair or replacement package (at the discretion of your insurance company) without you having to do anything. Let us handle all the red tape!
