WEATHERING THE STORM
Rain, wind, hail, and snow can all cause serious damage to the exterior of your home, and this threat is further amplified as hurricane season approaches. In fact, the severe nature of hurricane & storm damage has led insurance carriers to take exacting measures regarding their coverage and policies. This makes it essential for you to contact a professional public adjuster to navigate and understand these complicated intricacies designed to withhold coverage.
Storm damage claims are different than other types of insurance damage claims because they need to be related to the specific date and storm that caused the property damage. Our Rhode Island-based public adjusters know how to deal with storm related claims, and will always help the homeowner receive their rightful restitution.
If your home or business has been hit by a severe storm, look for signs such as dents in your siding or broken shingles that may have been caused by hail, or peeled siding caused by strong hurricane winds, or even water damage to your basement. If you notice any of these signs, contact Performance Adjusting as soon as possible to speak with a claims adjuster. The sooner we know of your damage, the sooner we can earn compensation for any repairs that need to be made.
When your home is damaged by a storm of any severity, time is of the essence, and you don’t have much time to waste. Even minor damages can evolve into more serious down the line, demanding more in repair expenses and jeopardizing your chances of receiving money from your insurance company. By ignoring the damage altogether, you are much more likely be denied by your insurance company.
The safety of you and your family is our #1 priority, especially when in cases of more severe, structurally compromising damage. Although we are a public adjusting company, we partner with Rhode Island Restoration, a local disaster restoration company, allowing us to deploy a team of restoration specialists to ensure that your property does not endure any more damages. Then, we will deal with every aspect of the post-disaster process; from temporary housing relocation to the reconstruction of your home.
Most importantly, we handle the entire insurance claims process for you. All financial, legal, and logistical processes are managed by Our Team of trained experts that look to get you the highest possible settlement from your insurance provider. The Performance Adjusting team will use their proven techniques and technology to provide a detailed estimate of the damages, then communicate these damages to your insurance provider. Once we have earned you the settlement that you deserve, we take our 10% adjusters fee.
Performance Adjusting was super helpful right from the start. David came out and listened to everything we had issues with. He walked the home and property carefully and documented everything precisely. We were concerned about the timing of our claim, for a storm in October of 2018 that damaged our home with water, and wrecked our fencing. David was very upfront and honest throughout the whole process, including following up with us consistently. They dealt with the insurance company quickly, and we were paid fairly. It was a great experience and I highly recommend them!
After a storm caused damage to my home, the insurance company offered me a check that did not seem to add up. I needed an advocate to help me deal with the insurance company, and thats exactly what I found with Performance Adjusting. They came to my home several times and thoroughly inspected the area. Then, they dealt with my insurance company personally and achieved a much higher payout than I expected. They facilitated the entire process from beginning to end. The next time I have any damage to my home, I'm going to avoid the headaches involved with the insurance company and will call Performance Adjusting right away.
After last year's Nor-Easter, I never thought I would be able to get the amount of money needed to get my house in Providence, RI to it's previous, pre-damage state. After going through Performance Adjusting, my adjuster, Bill D'Amico, was able to get more than enough money to fix my home.

That’s a great question. We are a team of specialists who deal with insurance claim policies related to property damage. When your home, business, or other property is impacted by fire, water, or other forms of damage, we come in and take the claims process off of your hands to ensure that you get the most money possible. Many people don’t understand how much they are eligible for in damages, and end up losing hundreds to thousands of dollars in the process. We offer free in-home consultations to assess the damages, then handle the entire communications process to take the stress off of your shoulders. Once the claim is approved, we receive a small share of the settlement, and you get your home & life back.
Dented walls, broken windows, missing shingles, water damage and peeling paint are all signs of storm damage. This list is incomplete, as there are so many different forms of storm damage.
First, it is important to address and repair the damage in a timely manner because of the unpredictable nature of weather, you never know when your exposed property will be hit again. Second, insurance companies have rather stringent storm damage policies that involve shorter terms of limitations, forcing you to make your storm-specific claim much faster.
This all depends on the severity of the storm damage. Each occurance yields a different outcome. Damages may appear later during the reconstruction process that were not initially visible. Therefore, it is critical to retain a public adjuster. Performance Adjusting will fight for you within your two-year statute of limitations. We are here to fight for you whether it be the inception of the claim, or one year down the road when supplemental funds are needed.
As you continue to complete repairs, keep invoices, receipts, and checks. Some insurance companies require photos of the completed work. Our advice to all insureds is that from day one of your water damage claim, keep records of everything. With proper record keeping, Performance Adjusting can assist you in recovering your depreciation.
