Caromark Roofing & Exteriors recently finished shingle replacement on the roofs at Hillside West Townhouses off of Park Road in South Charlotte. Because of our relationship with the HOA management company that provides services to the Hillside West HOA, we were recommended to their Board of Directors as the preferred roofing contractor to help them with this project. However, this was not a simple selection of shingle color, style and manufacturer, sign a contract and get started kind of project. The owners of Caromark visually inspected the roofs on their buildings and found evidence of hail damage to the 25 year 3-tab shingles. Utilizing our experience as independent insurance adjusters, we informed the property management company of our findings and encouraged them to notify the HOA board and file an insurance claim for roof replacement. Following our advise, the board did file a claim, informed us of the impending appointment with the insurance company, and we met the adjusting crew on the roofs of their buildings. They agreed with our assessment of the condition of the shingles that they did in fact have hail damage and as a result, processed the claim and made payment for total shingle replacement on all roofs. Since the HOA found themselves with capital reserves in anticipation for this project to occur due to shingle deterioration at a later date, they used some their new found available funds to upgrade to a heavier “Architectural” or dimensional shingles. We used Certainteed Landmark in Moire Black.
Like others before, and we are sure many to follow, Caromark will be of service to other multifamily commercial projects utilizing our unique credentials as General Contractors and Independent Insurance Adjusters to inspect, analyze and advise property owners as to the condition of their property and help them navigate the insurance claims process when a covered loss exists.
