The Insurance Process
We will work with you to make sure that you get everything completed that was damaged from the storm. We will make sure that your project is completed with only the BEST products available and recommended for your home even when your insurance company doesn’t want to pay for it! We have adjusters on staff to minimize your claim and help their bottom line. We will make sure that all damage is identified to your insurance company. ASAP Roofing has an entire division dedicated to insurance restoration. We handle both Residential and Commercial restoration projects. Most common projects include Hail, Wind and Hurricane damage, Flooding and Fire.
Choosing a roofing company can be a challenge – especially after a storm. There are hundreds of roofing companies out there – all promising something different. And then there is dealing with your insurance company, which might even deny any roofing damage at all. ASAP aims to make the process simple. We, after all, are in the business of making customers happy. Here is our process:
An ASAP Roofing professional inspects your home. We will do a comprehensive inspection and take detailed notes and pictures of all damages to your home. Some of the things we look for are obvious, like roof and siding damage. Other things, like your air conditioner fins and window bead strips, are less noticeable and often overlooked. To ensure that our inspection is comprehensive, we even look for damage to exterior lighting, pool decks, BBQ grills, lawn furniture, landscaping, flower beds and trees. All of the items on and around your home should be restored to pre storm condition – this is a process we specialize in.
We meet with your insurance adjuster: We employ full time employees whose job is to make sure your insurance company is giving you everything you deserve. These employees are proficient in all current local building codes so that nothing gets overlooked. While this might mean your insurance company will have to add gutters, or “re-deck” (replace all the plywood on your roof) to comply with local building codes, our job is to make sure you get everything you are entitled to!
We gain approval from your insurance: Once your job is approved a check and “Loss Sheet” will be issued to you. This is your estimate, and even if it’s substantially under retail (as most insurance companies are), we will try to charge you more than your insurance company is going to pay. We will also help you through getting endorsement from your mortgage company (if applicable) and pull all state and local permits that may be required.
We commence work on your home: Our highly experienced crews begin the restoration work. We make sure that the project is completed in a timely manner. This means most roofing work is completed in one day. Patio covers are typically completed in a half day.

The weight of the snow especially if it’s heavy snow can create structural issues. Many roofs have caved in due to excessive snow. Trees themselves can hold only so much snow until the tree falls on a roof. Many homeowners have walked into their homes to see branches of trees in their living rooms.
In the winter there are sometimes drastic changes in the temperature going from below freezing to above freezing temperatures. This creates snow to melt into the colder eaves and gutters that creates ice. Over a few days the ice builds up and creates what is called ice damming. These “dams” prevent water to flow through the gutters or off the roof. The water has no place to go but into the house or building.
