insurance claims


OK guys, games still on ,I got my check from Allstate, but booted the roofing co.They sent a fast talker in who didnt want to do the inside damage and repainting . He wanted to do things his way not allstates way. The dude even said the check wasnt mine,and I was to sign the check over to him lol .I called my adjuster(from allstate) and she said I could take the check and put in into my account and find someone I feel compy with. The(DOOR KNOCKERS) roofing co got a certified letter from me today or possibly yesterday telling them I no longer wanted to do business with them.So I called a friend who is a real estate agent and she gave me the number of a roofer, I used to know years ago. So I am a little wiser now and will not deal with anyone IM not completely confident with.I WILL KEEP YOU GUYS UP AS THINGS PROGRESS Thanks for all the help and info without you guys help I might have gotten bent over and s!@%^

insurance claims


If you want to make this really easy on yourself..

Call your Allstate agent..tell them how pleased you are with the adjuster... but could they recommend a local:
Alacrity (Allstate repair network contractor ) GC/Roofing contractor that might be able to handle all the work..

Carrier repair networks are often "shut down" and not offered by carriers durring storm events. This is done so as not to overwhelm the contractors and the carriers daily claims system.

As you noted: Insurance folks talk a foriegn language... odds are good that the adjuster did not note all the needed work in the estimate..
Your repairs will go much easier if you can find the right connected contractor...Your old roofer may know the score and be apart of it.

Re-read the contract you signed with the door knocker so you are prepared to respond if they start to threaten to sue, etc.

If you signed a contract I would advise you to consult an attorney before you get to far ahead of yourself. Not licensed in a township does not necessarily mean anything. I carry a state license which frees me from having to purchase township, county, or city contracting licenses if you will. Many companies do not obtain local business licenses for counties or cities until they have work in them (this is sometimes done while applying for permits after the contract signing) for obvious reasons.

Unless your contract explicitly states the company will do exactly what Allstate tells them to they are not bound to do so. I can tell you if you did not make 1 progress payment as stipulated in the contract you had with me I would stop work immediately until you did so and possibly go after you for breach of contract regardless of what your Allstate agent said.

In some states like here in Missouri. The only trades requiring state licenses are plumbers and electricians. Most counties are not zoned and in those, no one needs a license.
