Default Wind damage

Closed on my very first home Friday. The fiancé and I worked around the house all weekend doing minor things and this is what it looks like after last night... If I didn't have horrible luck I wouldn't have luck at all It was a mighty proud feeling walking out of the title office Friday after spending most of my life savings on the down payment. Guess it won't hurt to spend the rest on the insurance deductible after owning it for 3 days.

There are several water spots in the ceiling

You shouldn't have to come out of your pocket for the deductible unless you have more than 1%. I'm in the roofing business up in DFW and I can answer any questions you might have about your claim. Shoot me a pm if ya need my number.

Better make sure and cover the areas where water could possibly get in if it rains again. Most insurance companies will not cover further damages if you do not try to prevent them. A staple in almost every insurance policy on homes.

Who's going to pay for his deductible then? You know its illegal to pay some ones deductible right?

If you charge the customer less you would have to charge the insurance company more in order for him to recieve his full depreciation amount. Thats called a felony.

There are some rare occassions on new roofs or homes where the depreciation check is not needed but the fact is that the deductible still has to be paid by the customer.

Most people don't know that alot of roofing companies are charging their insurance company the full amount after giving them a"good deal" there for tieing their company and there customer into a felony count of insurance fraud. I know it happens all the time but the good ole hay days of getting deductibles paid for is about to come to an end. Several roofers just went to jail last week for this. If the customer can't prove they paid their deductible then they are tied into the fraud as well.

What Russ said! You are going to get a check minus any depreciation and deductible and when things are fixed, then you can get the depreciation back, but not until everything is fixed.

I know how you feel. I bought my home and 3 weeks later Hurricane Ike showed up.
42K worth of damage. Mine was beneficial though. Some remodeling was going to have to be done in 5-10 years, but Ike went ahead and took care of it

What people don't get is that a tradesman paying their deductible is illegal.

Lets say your first check is $10,000
Once you get all the work done you get another check for $5,000
When a roofer comes in and says he will only charge $12,000 so you can apply the other $3,000 towards the deductible he is lieing.

Insurance people are smart and greedy. No way are they just going to give you extra money to pay your own deductible.
When a roofer bills your insurance company if he bids the job less than the total claim then that second check called the depreciation check will just be less.

So what does the tradesman do to get this money illegally? He lies to the insurance company saying he charged you $15,000 so you get your full check. Therefore tieing both you and himself into a felony account of insurance fraud.

Insurance companies, distributors,and roofers are all suppose to be on the same page as far as priceing goes for insurance claims. One insurance company doesn't pay more than the next per sq of shingles. If they charge the customer less, then they are suppose to bill the insurance company less, therefore reducing the amount of the customers second check(depreciation)

Guys that are cheating the system are the ones making it difficult for the rest of us REAL business owners and like you said, making our insurance premiums go up. The law is getting more and more strict though. Alot of these yahoos wont be in business much longer.

You also have interior damage. It looks as though you'll need drywall repairs, some insulation replacement and painting. You can do some or all of these repairs yourself which will help with not having to pay your deductible out of pocket.

so could you explain to us who don't understand just how the 1% gets paid if the insured doesn't pay it?

I'm so confused.....


It appears that you're a contractor -- unless you are a licensed public adjuster, helping out with "your claim" isn't part of your job description.

Crossing that line will get you in a not-so-nice conversation with the DOI.

Why are you worried about me? I was merely trying to help him out (you know, the GS way) if he had any questions or needed any advice with his stuff and all you can do is try and jump on me??? Go worry about something/someone else

Holy moly man I'm with you. If you want to pay your deductible out of pocket then go ahead. I'm not in the storm chasing business by the way. I don't care if it does cost the insurance companies more they take plenty from us for everything.

yes. If there is recoverable depreciation involved, it is impossible to recover the full amount of the estimate without committing fraud and submitting fake invoices.

The guys who advertise covering your deductible usually manage to rack up at least two felonies for each claim that they submit.

The Coppell police have been arresting roofers for a variety of offenses this week. I've enjoyed the show.

We have been sending all the flyers that say "we will pay your deductible" to the insurance fraud division. It not fair to us that we have to abide by the rules but so many others think the rules do not apply to them.

We are licensed, insured for $2,000,000, preferred contractors for multiple insurance companies, and have a A+ rating with the BBB. You can't have that and commit fraud like alot of these guys are.

There are ways to reduce a deductible legally and it varies from claim to claim but it wont even cover a 1% deductible unless your house cost $70,000.

Alot of home owners have no idea that they are commiting a felony either. There's some smooth talkers out there, but the best companies and the best sales people don't pay deductibles. Home owners beware!!!! Its no joke!!!

I guess there are crooks on both sides. We had a big storm and big hail storm. Every house in my neighborhood had their roofs totalled. I called the insurance company and the adjuster came over and looked and said it was ok. I had been up and looked at it and knew how bad it was so I called the insurance company and asked for a different adjuster. Only took 3 calls and serious arguing and a request for the number to the insurance board to make a complaint and I got a different adjuster. He totalled my roof and said it was one of the worst in town that he inspected.

To the OP. Good luck in getting your house fixed.


Legally I understand the issues argued above.

When Alicia, Allison, Ike rolled through here, a few people I know demanded a second adjuster estimate after feeling ripped off at the first adjusters low balled estimate at repairing the damage.

All were pleased after the second adjuster came much closer to estimated repair costs that were deemed fair by both parties.



Fair system for all?

It is , like all things , dependent on the individual doing the work / appraising . When the last hurricane hit us there in League City there was an adjuster that came out and checked our house as well as our neighbors .
