Three Ways Contractors Complete Storm Restoration Roofing Jobs Faster
Homeowners impacted by hurricanes, wind and storm damage rely on roofing companies after weather events to get their roofs checked for damage as fast as possible. Moving faster often means more mistakes. Your sales reps in the field are moving quickly after a storm. So how can your roofing company deliver accurate pricing, trustworthy customer experience, and clear communication with insurance companies, adjusters, homeowners, and your team?
Maximum efficiency when documenting storm damage.
Fewer estimating and contract mistakes on repair or replacement costs.
Centralize data for clear communication with insurance companies & homeowners.
Automate your sales process to complete roofing jobs faster
Explain the claims process with homeowners
According to the Tampa Bay Times, homeowners will research roofing contractors just like you. After storms strike, the demand for roofing contractors is high. Out-of-town contractors are being welcomed in to help with the damage. This gives you the chance to differentiate your company as trustworthy. You can also be the comfort homeowners need in a time of stress. Why not explain the claims process with an easy-to-use tool at the kitchen table?
Ensure manufacturer specifications are met every job
Manufacturer requirements change from time to time. Paying attention to the details could save you and the homeowner from several headaches. Owens Corning says, “If an authorized contractor is handling the installation of your new roof, they may have to register its warranty with the manufacturer within a specified time frame.” In a recent interview with Daniel Young from Kingdom Roofing Systems, he said, “Leap allows you to build an insurance estimate with the language, code cited, and manufacturer requirements, so that you can have an insurance restoration package like ours, all in one place.”
Get information to the insurance carriers quickly
Accessing job documents from one location is important in the insurance claim process. Evidence is equally as important. When you collect more photos, it becomes harder to keep track of them. Centralizing all project communications speeds up the roofing job and gets the claim approved and finalized ASAP.
According to Monarch Roofing, “Be sure to include photographic evidence from you, the roofing contractors, or both. Act fast after a storm because if you wait too long to file a claim, your insurance company may not be able to decipher the difference between storm damage and negligent maintenance.” Contractors, don’t lose out on the insurance coverage homeowners deserve after a storm.
Shift to simple automations
Whether your storm restoration plan is to knock on doors or you’re an experienced sales rep traveling to join the best roofing company in Florida temporarily, deliver an experience that is simple, accurate and quick. Homeowners want trustworthy and reliable roofing services to keep their homes and families safe. Paper and manual processes slow projects down. They both look unprofessional and don’t give homeowners a good “vibe.”
In fact, thousands of roofing contractors have recently shifted their in-home sales experience from paper to software. Now you can create estimates, contracts, documents, financing, and payment capture to get the job done quickly and with less errors. Automating your day-to-day operations is key to finishing the roofing job quickly and efficiently.
