it is extremely important that we are at yourproperty at the same time. by being there, we help identify the property damages duringthe adjusterâ€™s inspection â€“ making sure all damages have been properly accounted for.remember to document everything! photos are your best friend when it comes to an insuranceclaim! once your adjuster inspects the property,they will write a report on what they believe has been damaged. this itemized estimate,or loss sheet, will either be provided to you on site, or will be sent via mail in approximately7-10 business days. with the loss sheet, you will also receive your first check for theclaim. this is called the acv check, or the actual cash value.typically, this is not the only payment you
will receive from your insurance company,as they split up the total payment into sections until all of the work is completed. asapâ€™shighly trained team can assist on all aspects of the claims process, or recommend publicadjustors or attorneys if necessary. if your insurance company denies or doesnâ€™tpay for some damaged property, you may request a â€œreinspectionâ€. with a reinspection,a new adjuster inspects the same damaged property, checking for items the initial adjuster missed.if we donâ€™t agree with your adjuster after the reinspection, we can ask for an appraisal.this is when an asap roofing representative, an insurance company representative, and anthird-party â umpire â€“ agreed to by both parties â€“ makes the final decision. if wedonâ€™t reach an agreement, the next step
would be positive legal action.if your entire roof is approved for repair, but there are other items, like windows ora fence, that were not covered in the original adjusterâ€™s report, we can add them to theclaim. this addition is called a â€˜supplementâ€™. a supplement requires that photos, dimensions,and an estimate outlining the additions and are sent to your insurance company. this processtakes an average of 2-4 weeks of negotiating. the team here at asap roofing does this additionalstep for you, at no extra cost. once you receive your loss sheet, and theacv check, we review the information with you â€“ clarifying any details and answeringany questions. we then schedule an installation date. next, you pick your colors and otherpreferences on materials you may have.
