For Example; A home was burned except for the master bedroom and most of the perimeter walls! A 3rd story toilet leaks and floods all 3 floors! Tree falling damages! Water heater leaks damaged floors and lower 6 of walls throughout the home! Things happen, and we are set to get you back to where you want to be- At home, as soon as possible, and back to your lifestyle as you were enjoying before the disaster! We are remodelers, specializing in remodeling! We do not do new construction Track homes, so these types of projects are, after all, just right for our company, the homeowner, and the insurance company disbursements. Part of our claim handling services is to negotiate with the insurance company, if and when needed. In the last 5 years, there was only one adjuster statement that did not require negotiations, and we were surprised at that! The home in Lexington that was burned was $34,000.00 short of the required costs for the actual repairs! An individual attempting to do this for himself would lose money, not make money, as the insurance adjuster statement is prepared for that scenario! This makes sense though, as we all want The Lowest Bidder and the insurance company is the same, so they will almost always produce an amount that is below the normal remodeling prices in our area. Often the homeowner thinks they will make money by doing the claim service and repairs themselves, but later find the money offered wasnt enough to make money, in real life. Especially when they try to figure their own labor time! All Pro Improvements has successfully negotiated with insurance companies to increase the claim amount (if required) from $4200.00 to as high as $34,000.00 above THE ORIGINAL ADJUSTERS STATEMENT, when allowed to communicate with the insurance company. These are not profit figures, but instead simply missed expenses, or unrealized items, and/or computer generated reports simply not reflecting real life circumstances! Trust our company to take your project from start to finish, based upon the scope of work as designated by the insurance company, and for the money being paid by the insurance company, for the fastest time to get your home back to like it was, before your disaster! Some homeowners simply pocket the money, and dont make the repairs! Some 6 months later, an inspection of the property will show that the repairs were not made, and the insurance and/or mortgage could be canceled! From simple hail damage, water damage from a leaking toilet, to water damage from fire department hoses, we step up and rebuild the problem area to todays codes, with todays products! You get a new roof, room (or home) basically paid for by the insurance company proceeds. This is about the only way to find a silver lining; in that dark cloud that surrounds traumatic damages to your home! All Pro Improvements, Inc., President, Mac Smith has been through the loss of 1 home by fire as a child, and nearly $70.000 in repairs to his own home in 2008 from wind damage, and knows personally the affects this type of damage to a home causes, not only to the home, but also upon the homeowners and family. Unless you are a builder, you should not attempt this yourself, and could find yourself coming out of pocket for the additional expenses to complete your home!
Interiors and exteriors can be completely modified during this time of extreme emotional upset of your life as well. Do you want the house back exactly like it was? We can do that! Do you want to take advantage of the insurance claim and update the style of your interior or exterior? - We can do that! For example, you have standard 3-tab shingles, and the insurance company is paying for that replacement of those types of shingles. Certainly you can select a Lifetime Warranted Architectural type shingle instead, and simply pay the difference! Shouldnt you be able to do this with whatever room, or even entire home? First we assess the damage, and price for the repairs back to the original design, which is what the insurance adjusters statement is intending to pay for. We then compare it to the insurance claim amount. When there is a difference, we contact them and explain the difference, to which they will agree or disagree to. (They dont write blank checks!) In the end, our company normally agrees to complete the same scope of work, as outlined by the insurance company, to be completed at the price agreed to with the insurance company, with your deductible being paid. Once we have struck that "deal" with the insurance company, then the modifications you want can come into play. This doesnt mean a lot more money either. For example, you had a flat ceiling at 8 tall, but you want a vaulted ceiling. This is Less lumber, but more sheetrock and painting, so the balance comes out to less than $1500, or so, to change that ceiling to one you will love for years to come! (Whole house estimated difference.) You had carpet, and now you want hardwood floors- No Problem! You had a tile bathroom, and now you want Cultured Marble- No Problem and almost the same dollar amounts! You want Granite Counter tops?- No Problem! Call All Pro Improvements about your remodeling, be it an insurance claim or not! Lets turn that problem time into a bonus time! Also- The value of your new old home for resale, would far exceed the value at the time of the original misfortune, in many cases. You deserve a "Fresh Start" and All Pro Improvements wants to help you to get that new Fresh Start, small or large!
