Company Completes Major Roofing Project for Large Apartment Complex in Three Weeks

(AUSTIN, TX – March 16, 2009) Austin 360 Roofing, a leading, Texas-based roofing company, announced the completion of a roofing repair project for a 17 building, 250,000 square foot Simpson Property Group apartment complex. The project was completed in only three weeks, and by using state of the art satellite and GPS technology, Austin 360 Roofing was able to identify several inconsistencies in the adjuster’s measurements and accurately negotiate the payout of the claim to reflect an accurate replacement cost for the project.

“When construction began I originally assumed it would take several months to complete a job of such magnitude,” said Cassie Otworth, Regional Property Manager of Simpson Property Group, “but Austin 360 Roofing exceeded our expectations by completing the project in only three weeks. I realize that there is no way to avoid the sheer noise and mess of this such an extensive roofing project, so completing it so quickly really minimized the distress to our residents.”

Austin 360 Roofing was originally hired to repair a routine roof leak caused by a hailstorm at a Simpson Property Group apartment complex located in Austin, TX. The company fixed the leak immediately, preventing water from penetrating residents’ apartments. During a full, free assessment of the roof, it was discovered that the extent of the damage was severe enough to file an insurance claim.

Austin 360 Roofing actively managed the claims process for determining the full scope of repairs to the roof and gutter system. Based on negotiations with the claims adjustor, Austin 360 Roofing secured a settlement that was considerably higher than the insurance company originally offered due to some inaccuracies in the adjuster’s initial measurements and covered damages not originally included in the report.

“Often, property managers don’t have experience dealing with large insurance claims,” said Bryan Wiest, president of Austin 360 Roofing. “In many cases, the insurance adjuster will approve a claim for less than what should be covered. But we can ensure that the claims management process is conducted accurately so that the proper return for a covered loss is provided.”

Managing the insurance claim was one aspect of Austin 360 Roofing’s service to Simpson Property Group. Completing the endeavor in a timely manner was also critical to the company’s business objectives.

“One of the biggest concerns of apartment communities is that a roofing project will last several months, and that it will be noisy and messy. That can be upsetting to residents and can interfere with new leases,” Wiest said. “That was the situation with Simpson Property Group.

“We understand that time is of the essence to minimize disruption. So our commitment is that typically on any job involving 200,000 square feet or more, we’re going to dedicate 50 or more people at all times to complete the project as rapidly as possible without sacrificing quality. Our roofing expertise, along with our project management experience with insurance adjusters, allows us to finish major projects with minimal inconvenience to the apartment community or frustration to the management company.”
