Understanding the difference between a roof inspection and a Pre-Hurricane Analysis with a detailed audit report is important if you are a homeowner living in Lafayette, Louisiana or in the surrounding areas of Opelousas, Breaux Bridge, Abbeville, and Crowley. In fact, if you are a homeowner in the Acadian region, you need to know the difference between these two. It could be the difference in being made whole by your insurance company or left holding the bag with undone repairs.

Most roofing companies, including RLB Construction, offer a FREE, a NO-Cost roof quote or a roof inspection. Most have this type of inspection performed when they know they have some existing roof damage. This simple inspection includes a quote of what needs to be repaired and how much it will cost. Many insurance companies are now cancelling homeowners’ policies if they find that they had minor damage to their homes before hurricane season.

RLB Construction is proud to offer the residents of Lafayette, LA and the Acadian Region a detailed 2023 Pre-Hurricane Analysis, which includes up to 70 pictures and an in-depth pdf report of the exterior condition of your home. We will check the roof, siding, gutters, windows, and all other external components of your home for any damage, providing you with an in-depth report.

After the last three major hurricanes,  in the Lake Charles and New Orleans areas, we found that homeowners were being turned down by their insurance companies for preexisting damage. Unfortunately, unless you have the proper documentation to support your insurance claim, it can take months, even years, before the insurance company settles your claim.

This is why you need to be prepared. You need to have your 2023 Pre-Hurricane Analysis done before hurricane season. This is a very small price to pay for the assurance that your claim will go as smoothly as possible after a storm.

If you have an analysis done prior to hurricane season and you get hit by a storm, RLB Construction will do a No Cost damage assessment comparing the pre-and post-condition of your home. This gives you the proper documentation to present to your insurance company, provided by a qualified and licensed contractor in the state of Louisiana.

As they say, it is far better to be safe than sorry. Take advantage of our special pre-storm pricing. This is another step in ensuring you are prepared for hurricanes by protecting yourself. More information is available on the details of the 2023 Pre-Hurricane Analysis.
