…and it follows successful completion of the greatest roofing assessment certification course I’ve ever seen. Think about all the roof defect photos and questions you’ve seen posted on these boards or that you’ve asked or been asked, then prepare yourself to provide the answers.
Originally designed to teach insurance claims adjusters to evaluate roofing problems and identify defect causes- especially from hail and wind but including many more- this course has huge number of photos of a variety of defects. The photos themselves are beautiful but the accompanying explanations are the best part… almost.
The best part is another whole avenue of work! Claims adjustors would like to stop having to climb up onto roofs and insurance companies would like to stop having to pay them to climb up onto roofs. This course will teach inspectors what they need to know to provide claims adjustors with photos and comments. In other words, home inspectors will take over site visits for claims adjustors. In its final form, this will be probably be somewhat similar to draw inspections, however during the storm season starting in April, the number of claims inspections can exceed 10,000 a day. If you’re an insurance company having to deal with numbers of that magnitude and you see a way to reduce your costs…
We’ll be posting more about this course as it develops. I am very excited about this course and the dramatic potential it holds for expanding the services which inspectors can offer in working with the insurance industry. Ancillary services help inspectors make it through the lean times and boost the bottom line during good times.
That aspect should not overshadow the increased competence in roof inspection this course will offer to those who complete it. This is a great, great course and a unique opportunity.
What size hail caused the damage in the photo below?
