A recent hail storm had finally put the school/preschool’s 18-year old aging roof out of commission for good. It was damaged beyond repair, and so the school’s administrators decided to file a claim with their insurance company. They needed AmeriPro Roofing to carry out a full inspection to aid with the insurance claim process.*
There were not only five different structures in the school complex but the school’s 700-plus students would be attending school while the work was being carried out. The safety of the school children would need to be of paramount importance.
The school’s insurance company sent out an adjustor who surveyed the roof and provided details of the reimbursement amount. Due to the nature of the structures and extent of damage, AmeriPro Roofing sent a structural engineer to inspect the roof. The inspection was comprehensive, lasting over six hours to inspect the damage from every conceivable angle, providing a full report on what was repairable and what needed replacing.
The level of detail carried out by AmeriPro’s inspection uncovered additional damages that had previously been overlooked by the insurance adjuster which helped the preschool optimize their insurance claim. Like many schools, minimizing operating costs and running on a tight budget are standard operating procedures and so every penny counts towards the bottom line.*
