We wanted to share a true story that shows exactly how important it is to have us come out and do a free inspection post storm. There was a storm in Dover, Ohio* on April 10th and we stopped by that day to see if John* was interested in a free home inspection, he wasn’t interested. He couldn’t see any damage done to his home and figured he was fine. On April 16th, one of our specialists ran into John in a coffee shop and asked him again. John said he had done a visual check himself and his house looked great! No need to bring a specialist in. Well the days went on as they’re known to and we fast-forwarded to June 26th.
A rain storm came through and John was awoken in the middle of the night with a drip, drip, drip on his forehead… his ceiling was leaking! Thankfully, John kept our business card and called us immediately. On that first storm back on April 10th,one of the shingles was lifted and created a water access point. Rain and moisture had been seeping in for 11 weeks. In those weeks, his insulation became saturated. Mold and wood rot had begun, and not just in the roof. The water had leaked down into the walls of John’s home.
We had to replace all the insulation, some drywall and replace the entire roof. Thank goodness we were able to work with John’s insurance agent to locate the damage as well as provide a storm date to get the entire project covered by his homeowners insurance. We now have a great relationship with John and his entire family! They are so thankful and have started spreading the word on the head-aches and thousands of dollars saved by allowing ORS to come in and check your home right from the beginning. He isn’t the first person to tell us this! We hear, “I wish I would have opened my door to you the first time you came! What was I thinking?!” all the time. Don’t follow in John’s footsteps, call us today and save yourself from having to wish you did! 330-571-1827 for your Northeast Ohio Storm Claim Specialist!
