The insurance company will contact you to schedule a convenient appointment time. Inform your insurance company that you would like your roofer present, and let your Garcia Roofing and Sheet Metal representative know when your appointment is scheduled.
When will someone inspect my damage?
How can I check the status of my claim?
You can check the status of your claim by contacting your insurance company either via telephone and/or online.
What happens next?
After your damages are evaluated, an insurance adjuster will create an estimate. Your estimate typically spells out what needs to be repaired and/or replaced, as well as what is covered under your policy.
Why is there depreciation shown on the estimate?
Depreciation is typically shown on all estimates for items that are not brand new. Depreciation is a decrease of the item's value due to age, wear, or market conditions. Your estimate may include depreciation for items & materials that are being replaced. However, once the replacement of your covered loss has been completed, you may be able to recover the depreciation amount that was withheld depending on your policy terms, conditions, and exclusions.
What's a deductible? When do I need to pay it and to whom?
A deductible is the portion of a loss covered that you are responsible for under your policy. For example, if your covered claim is for $4,500 and your deductible is $500, your insurer pays $4,000. The settlement check you receive from the insurer will be based on the amount of your covered loss from the estimate minus your deductible and any applicable depreciation. In most cases, you would pay the amount of your deductible directly to your contractor once repairs are completed.
What if my contractor's estimate is different from the insurance estimate?
Garcia Roofing and Sheet Metal sets prices to stay in line with the majority of insurance companies. Insurance discrepancies can be due to measurements, uncovered items, or outdated pricing. A Garcia Roofing and Sheet Metal representative can offer you the assistance you need by dealing with your insurance company directly to resolve any issues. A representative may also make any necessary adjustments.

"I have used Cribbs Roofing for a while, not anymore" - Vince (client)
Copper work was great! Thanks
After using another contractor to fix the leak in my roof, I called Garcia. They did the original estimate but I went with someone else. I wasted $600 and the leak was worse! Call Garcia FIRST!
Job was completed in a very friendly manner, and everybody was friendly and knowledgeable.
Thank you so much for yet another first class job! We love our wall caps.Original Note from Julie

Excellent job. I was satisfied with the removal of the damaged roof, the addition of the new roof and the cleanup afterwards. I will definitely recommend Garcia Roofing.
New roof on rental property is the third job that Garcia has done for me. Great service from estimates to cleanup to follow up on paperwork (receipt, warranty, etc.). Congratulations on outstanding service. I have recommended you to neighbors.
Garcia Roofing did an excellent job on our roof replacement due to Hurricane Isaac. They did everything we asked for and cleaned up all debris.
I want to commend Garcia Roofing for a professional and outstanding job. I watched how Garcia workers took personal pride in their work. Garcia went far and beyond to make my roof a pleasure to look at. I will highly recommend to anyone needing a roof.
I find it necessary to express in writing my gratitude for the relationship that we have developed since I became a new homeowner in Prairieville. You have been to my home on four different occasions not only to help my wife and I solve our roofing problems, but also assist us in adding an awning over our side door. On each occasion that we requested your help, you immediately responded to our need by coming right over and giving us an estimate within 24 hours.
Our decision to allow you to proceed with installation or repair was never regretted. Your workers were always prompt for all appointments, very polite, and never left a mess when the job was complete. The work that they performed was done in a professional and workmanlike manner.
I want to thank you for your professionalism in satisfying our desires. Your company is our company of choice whenever we have roofing needs in the future and I will not hesitate to recommend Garcia Roofing to my family, friends, or others.Original Note from Bruce

From start to finish, the job was handled in a timely and professional manner. Workers were prompt, friendly and left work site as nice as they found it. Will refer Garcia to others for their roofing needs.
Your workers were professional and fast. Olman and Jose are assets to your company and were a big help during the reroofing of my home. Also Marcy is "tops" in customer relations, with updating the work crew.
Excellent work from Garcia Roofing... Always very pleased... very competitive pricing
I am very satisfied with my roof. Everything was picked up, I had no mess and the workers were very good and never takes a break. I will tell my family and friends.
My gutters were installed on time and have been working great ever since.
I am very pleased with your service. Numerous trips were made to my home for inspections of the roof so that I could be aware of all my options before repairs were made.
Excellent service and workmanship. My roof was replaced in 2005, and we were entirely pleased. The job in 2012 was to replace flashing and some soffit, and again we were pleased.
