During the hurricane season each year, EagleView is here and ready to help contractors and insurers resolve homeowners’ claims and start rebuilding. Whenever the Atlantic hurricane season hits, we are here to help speed up the process of rebuilding by providing high-resolution aerial imagery and property data necessary to get homeowners the proper information they need.
Following a busy hurricane season, contractors and insurers need to have a bulletproof response plan. It’s not enough to know the storm’s coming – they have to be adequately prepared to handle it once it arrives.
After all, hurricanes will damage anything and everything in their paths.
In order to stay one step ahead of the storm, we recommend a three-point plan for all contractors and insurers in at-risk areas.
Staffing is always an issue for contractors, especially given the current challenges of COVID-19 and an active storm season. However, recent research has found that homeowners are looking to begin completing projects again, meaning more business for roofing contractors.
Insurers also need to ensure they have enough personnel to tackle the abundance of jobs brought about by a major hurricane.
If you’re struggling to recruit, try looking into industry-specific job boards or implementing a referral program to incentivize current employees. Having the right people is a crucial first step!
Are you located in an area that’s considered at-risk for hurricanes? If so, do you offer a variety of comprehensive services to cover any damage that might arise?
If not, now might be a good time to evaluate your company’s offerings to see how well aligned they are with damage that may occur. For example, roofing contractors may consider looking into door and window repair to bolster their capabilities.
The time and effort required to perform an estimate for a typical job can add up quickly, especially when you factor in a site visit. Following a hurricane, this process is even more complicated, as many properties can be inaccessible or dangerous to enter.
However, virtual property measurements (such as roof reports) provide accurate measurements in a time-sensitive manner and help keep costs low and your employees safe. This allows contractors and insurers to spend less time and money up front and close claims faster and more efficiently.
At EagleView, we’re always standing by to help during storm season. When questions arise, make sure to check out our Support page. Our best-in-class support team is standing by to assist you through the Live Chat function.
There’s a reason that local government departments, roofing contractors and insurance companies trust EagleView following a catastrophic storm. We’ve been there.
