A 2 Sherman Publications, Inc. Progress Edition 2016 Lake Orion Roofing dispels insurance claims rumors after natural disaster


Did your neighbors get new roofs last year? After a catastrophic hailstorm hit downtown Lake Orion two years ago, over 90 percent of roofs that Lake Orion Roofing has inspected had roof damage.


Many homeowners were completely un- aware, until Haag Cer- tified Lake Orion Roof- ing Inspectors climbed up to take a look. The storm that flat- tened 3,000 evergreen trees left many resi- dents worried—should


they, or should they not file a claim? Nobody wants their insurance rates to in- crease, however, according to the National Storm Damage Center, typically insurance companies cannot single out a homeowner for a rate increase based on an “Act of God” storm damage claim. Instead, insurance com- panies can raise rates for everyone in the affected area.


In other words, whether or not you file a claim, everyone will see an increase in insur- ance rates for a natural disaster. “So if you don’t file a claim, your increase in premium will pay for everyone else’s re- pairs, except yours. You should never have to pay for your neighbor’s roof,” Lake Orion Roofing Owner Mark Southern said. Lake Orion Roofing, located at 881 Brown Rd., knows the claims industry inside and


out, and for over 30 years has helped cus- tomers successfully complete the entire claim process, from start to finish.


“Nobody gets individually punished for fil- ing a claim from a natural disaster,” Carla DeVito said, roofing manager. “We want to make sure that our customers are aware that whether or not they have any damage they need to at least get an inspection.” Many homeowners may have limited time to file an insurance claim, and could poten- tially miss the opportunity to utilize their homeowners insurance to repair any damage to their homes by waiting too long. With their free assessment policy, Lake Orion Roofing will provide homeowners with proof of damage to take back to their insur- ance company if any damage is found to their homes. “It’s a painless process for the customer,” Southern said. “We walk them through each step of the claims process, from filing a claim to installing their new roof, with a complete guarantee of our workmanship.” The truth is, the chance of damage to your home after a storm is greater if other repairs have been made in nearby houses. And, hail damages is very difficult to detect, occurring in roofs, siding and windows.


Lake Orion Roofing assessed and replaced over 600 roofs since the hailstorm and South- ern guarantees there are still more out there with roof damage.


“Most people think that their house is okay,


but they have no idea unless we get up there and look at it. The people that called us last year were literally amazed. We’re here to help the people whose homes were damaged, don’t know it, and are going to be punished later.”


A good test to know whether or not their home has been damaged is to first look around the neighborhood.


“One of our first questions is whether the homeowners has noticed any activity in the neighborhood,” DeVito said. “If the answer is yes, then at that point you more than likely have damage.”


Other signs include collateral damage dis- covered around the bottom sections of your house to windows, trim and decks, which typi- cally indicates roofing damage above, South- ern said.


Homeowners even have the option to uti- lize Lake Orion Roofing’s work authorization policy, which allows the company to deal di- rectly with the homeowner’s insurance car- rier on their behalf and complete the process for the homeowner. All the owner must do is file the claim, pay the deductible, and Lake Orion Roofing will provide the rest. After 30 years of business in Lake Orion, and with certified, professional roofers, Lake


Orion Roofing cares for each of their cus- tomers like family. “We have helped a lot of people out of a tough time,” DeVito said. “We genuinely care about our customers and we want to make
