Memphis area residents that have suffered damage to the interior of their home have a choice in contractors – and that choice DOES matter.
It’s unfortunate, but some homeowners think they have to use a home remodeling company on their insurance company’s referral list – even if they can’t find someone they like. But that’s NOT TRUE.
And some homeowners think it doesn’t really matter who they choose since the insurance company is paying. Also NOT TRUE.
There’s a better way to find the right Memphis area contractor to handle your homeowners insurance claims work.
Just because most contractors COULD say they do insurance claims work, that doesn’t mean you SHOULD hire them. Here are 5 reasons Robbins Construction is a particularly excellent choice.
Homeowner insurance claims can be handled with less stress and better results when you choose a Memphis home remodeling company with experience handling previous claims.
Insurance companies have processes that need to be followed and documentation requirements that need to be met. We know exactly what those are.
In addition, we can serve as a verification that your insurance company is paying an amount that will fairly restore your home. If it is less, we will work with the claims adjuster and provide the necessary documentation to get your home back to normal.
Robbins Construction evolved from builder to remodeler. Our builder background is a big asset, particularly when it comes to homeowners insurance claims.
Restoring your home to its previous condition after damage is usually not a ‘cookie-cutter’ situation – you need someone who has comprehensive knowledge of home interiors and won’t overlook anything important or “get in over their heads.” Our background as a builder gives us that special knowledge.
The truth is most contractors and home remodeling companies that do homeowner insurance work are often focused on the exterior of homes. (After all, roofing and siding are common places for damage during storms and the source of many homeowner insurance claims).
But interior damage can happen for a variety of reasons and hiring a company that typically does exteriors to restore your interior can lead to disappointing results. The best solution is to hire someone who knows interiors.
Here’s another place where our builder background and our extensive experience in home remodeling projects sets us apart.
If you have a quality home, it has a certain aesthetic that your restoration work needs to match. We’re experts in maintaining the aesthetic value and high standards as we make your home “whole again.”
Sometimes homeowners choose to go beyond the insurance claim and decide to pay more to get an upgrade. Given our extensive remodeling expertise, we’re a good choice for that.
We’re also flexible whenever possible. Some contractors will be rigid when it comes to fulfilling a claim. For example, if the insurance claim lists one particular paint color, some contractors insist that’s the only paint color they’ll use. But with Robbins Construction, if you want another color, we’re fine with that.
That’s just one example. With us, if there is a comparably priced alternative that your prefer, we will cheerfully accommodate you.
If you’ve had any kind of damage to the interior of your home, call us – it’s almost for sure we can help you. Here are some of the more common sources of interior home damage that we help Memphis area homeowners with:
If the interior of your home has been damaged, 99 times out of 100 we can help. Here’s a partial list of areas we can help with:
You may be wondering about exterior work and whether we can help. Here’s the answer:
In some cases, we will do exterior work, particularly if the damage is to both your interior and exterior. With our builder background, we are certainly qualified to do the work.
That said, in some cases when we think there is a better match for particular exterior work, we may refer you to another contractor.
NO! Your insurance company likely has a list of contractors available to you, but the vetting to make the list typically has very minimal criteria. You are under no obligation to choose from that list.
One of the biggest problems we see is this: homeowners unknowingly choose a contractor that is not an expert in the kind of work they need done.
Many of these companies will accept jobs that they don’t know enough about. For example, a company that does exteriors will often agree to do interior remodeling or restoration work. Avoid this by always selecting a company that can prove they’re experts in the particular work you need done.
Remember, you have a choice!
You will have to pay your deductible, but that’s it. (Of course, should you want to go beyond restoration and get more done, we’re happy to quote that for you as well).
That’s easy – give us a quick call at (901) 207-5886. We’ll talk it through and give you advice on whether it’s likely to be covered and if we’re the right company to help. Another option is to check with your local agent. (In general, it’s not a good idea to call the ‘1-800’ number of your insurance company unless your local agent recommends it first – you can end up filing a claim that gets denied and that can sometimes factor into your rates).
