I started my residential roofing business about 11 months ago. I also work with a large multifamily construction company and was given some autonomy to start this “branch” of the company in an attempt to diversify… anyways, I did about 45 roofs (only 1 insurance) in that span of time. I’m happy with it especially considering I came from no residential business at all, but I am having a hard time understanding insurance jobs. I am xactimate certified and have written $1,000,000+ single claims in the past…but all large loss with apartments. I thought for sure that if I could do that, residential will be a breeze… but I think one object in my way is that I am honest. I was told by an adjuster that more that 50% of the inspections he does in my area have vandalism on them. I just can’t bring myself down to that level. So I am looking for someone who has had great success in the insurance game who is willing to help out a young guy. I am willing to pay some professional fees if you require. I just need someone I can talk to who is willing to help a young self starter out. I am in the Memphis area.
Plus, my multifamily company is nationwide and we always sub out roofers when we are outside of the Memphis area, so I would for sure use you.
