Record catastrophic storms strike Twin Cities in '07; Abelard Construction helps thousands not only rebuild, but sift through complicated insurance process.

Most homeowners do not realize they have hail damage. Why? It is impossible to see damage from the ground

Abelard Construction, the premier residential restoration firm in the Midwest, announced today that its Minneapolis office has helped thousands of home owners throughout the Twin Cities area this year not only rebuild, but understand and work through the often complex insurance claims process.

"Most homeowners do not realize they have hail damage. Why? It is impossible to see damage from the ground," states Brian Lemke, Senior Insurance Claim Specialist for Abelard Construction. "Homeowners need a trained professional who knows the difference between nail pops, blistering and hail damage. The solution is to have a trained professional examine your roof up close. And since our company offers no obligation free inspections, homeowners have nothing to lose - with one exception. If homeowners wait and do not file a claim in time, they may have to pay out of pocket."

In addition to offering homeowners great workmanship, Abelard has a team of insurance claim specialists that assist homeowners in understanding and working through the often complex insurance claims process. Some appreciative customers from both residential and commercial properties have commented:

"You know it's bad when you are replacing the new roof you just installed six months ago. Abelard Construction put on a new roof and siding for us nine months ago and another softball size hailstorm came though in May and tore up everything! They came right back out and replaced it again."

  • Joseph W., Anoka, MN

"When my insurance company sent out an adjuster the first time, he never even went on the roof, but insisted we had no damage. I called Abelard Construction for a second opinion because they were advertising free roof inspections in the newspaper. Their inspector came out, did a photographic essay of the damages to my roof and siding, met with a second adjuster, and convinced him that the roof needed to be replaced. Two weeks later Abelard Construction finished our roof with no out of pocket cost to us."

  • Mary F., Minnetonka, MN

"Our combined roofs are the size of three football fields, and we've had three major storms here in the last two years. With Abelard's negotiation help, our insurance company agreed to provide a new roof throughout the entire complex at no out of pocket cost to us.    The following week Abelard mobilized over 100 men and finished our entire roofing project in 3 days. Let's just say we were in awe."

  • Chris D., resident, Fox Briar Townhomes, Maple Grove, MN

Abelard has had to double its production capabilities this year to keep up with demand. On any given day the company has several hundred workers in the area re-roofing homes, as well as helping with siding, windows, gutters, and other exterior trades. With a unique quality control system in place, Abelard has one of the lowest warranty calls or "leak" calls in the industry.

Local news station, Channel 11, recorded Abelard at work in the area after a recent storm, protecting homes from further damage. View the clip at http://www.AbelardConstruction.com.
