“In May of 2008 a storm went thru No. St. Paul, and damaged my roof. I call Dewey Berglund. He came to my house and got on my roof and inspected it for damage. Finding damage, I called my insurance company. When the adjuster showed up so did Dewey. He went over the whole job with the adjuster and handled everything. I got a new roof on my house and garage. The job was done very quickly & very professionally. Dewey even went up on my roof to paint my roof caps. They cleaned everything up and picked up everything. It was a great job. Thanks Dewey.”

Below is an overview of our storm claim process. Please consider us. We are the “ Company that cares”


Storm Claim Process

After a storm rolls through your neighborhood – you’ll see companies banging on your door asking to jump on your roof to give you an estimate of your damage. Beware! You need someone you trust that has done this before to guide you through the process every step of the way.


The Storm Claim Process

If you suspect you have hail or wind damage, contact us right away and, one of our field staffers will come out and do a complete inspection of your property, at no cost to you.


1. We start at the ground and move to your roof because damage to your roof is not as evident as damage to your siding, windows, or deck. At 1st Team Exteriors you can trust us do what is right. We do not tell you something just to get a job. If the damage to your roof is significant enough to file a claim, we work with you before the insurance adjuster arrives to prepare a damage report that consists of drawings and measurements of your home’s exterior.


2. At the time of the Adjuster’s inspection, we meet them at your home and walk them through all the damage we found and show them the damage report to ensure everything gets covered correctly by your Insurance provider!


Doing it Right write the First Time

After a large storm, insurance adjusters are busy. We want to make sure they collect all of the damage the first time to prevent having to bring out another adjuster to validate the damaged missed during their inspection. Four eyes are better than two. If we work together to get it right the first time – we can get your home and life back to normal sooner.


Insurance paperwork and - the check

Once your insurance paperwork arrives by mail it can be confusing. We meet with you at your convenience and at no charge, to help you understand what it all means. At 1st Team Exteriors, we believe in proactively educating you about how the process is intended to work. We want you to feel comfortable and in the loop every step of the way.
