Don’t Panic

Occasionally things go wrong with your car, your health, or your home. That’s why there are insurance companies to offer the protection you need. And that’s why there are highly trained professionals at Pechacek General Contracting.

If your home is damaged by weather or other factors, contact us first to keep your home and family safe. Then contact your insurance company in order to make sure the services required for you and your home are covered and arranged. We also recommend that you choose a local trusted contractor for your storm damage needs as storm chasing contractors often are incentivized by insurance companies and provide subpar work. You deserve better.

Will my insurance company pay for a new roof?
Your insurance company will pay for damage from an act of nature or accident, such as a hailstorm, hurricane, tornado, falling branches or debris, or another incident.

Who should I call first if I think my roof is damaged, Pechacek General Contracting or my insurance company?
First, call Pechacek General Contracting to inspect your roof and document damage. Get a written description and digital photographs. We can help you determine if there is enough damage to warrant an insurance claim. If so, we can speed the process and get your roof restored quickly.

Can you represent me during the insurance inspection?
Yes, our inspector can be on hand when your insurance adjuster arrives to inspect the damage and make sure all areas of concern are included in the final report. This ensures you get all the compensation you need for quality repairs.

How much money will I get from my insurance company?
The final determination of the value of the claim will be made by your insurance company, based on the report from the insurance adjuster. Depending on the age of your roof, the amount paid may be less than the full cost of repair or replacement (due to depreciation). This figure can sometimes be negotiated.

I got several estimates to repair my roof, but they vary widely. Why?
Before making a decision, make sure all the estimates offer the same quality of materials and workmanship. One contractor might propose using 25-year shingles, while another may offer installation of a 50-year shingle for only slightly more. Make sure you’re getting the most for your money.
