St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
United Association of Storm Restoration Contractors (UASRC) member Apex Exteriors came to the assistance of the City of Breckenridge Hills, MO after recent storms proved detrimental to the city hall building that houses the police, courthouse and public records. Shane Berry from Apex was contacted by city superintendent Drew Brauner after storms hit the city and upwards of $500,000 in damages occurred on the interior of the building due to heavy rain breaching the roof structure. “What happened is the roof replacement was started and only completed about half way. On top of that, the work was done improperly causing major water damage to the building” said Shane Berry of Apex. “We were able to get out to the location and begin an immediate mitigation process to stop the water from entering the building”. Apex was able to mitigate about 90% of the leaks on the roof within 3 hours of receiving the call for help. Servpro was called in to mitigate the water on the interior of the building.
“The next morning, we immediately assessed three new bids to repair the roof and Apex Exteriors was chosen as the replacement contractor to get the roof back in working order so we can move forward. They came in with a reasonable price and their ability to assist in our time of need was a tremendous help to the city” said Drew Brauner, city of Breckenridge Hills Superintendent.

About the UASRC
The UASRC was formed as a non-profit organization with the goal of inspiring positive change in the storm restoration industry. The mission of the UASRC is to promote the highest ethical standards in the restoration industry. Our Members adhere to a code of professional conduct, educate property owners about the insurance claims process, and give back to the community through outreach and charitable programs.

The UASRC will also work closely with legislators, insurance companies, and both local and national media to improve the practices and image of the storm restoration industry.
After storms hit an area, homeowners are often approached by transient roofing companies to assist with insurance claims and repairing the damage. UASRC members will be instantly recognizable with their credentials and UASRC identification badges. As a best practice, you should look for the following to identify a legitimate roofer:
- Clearly represents their products and services, including adequate disclosures of all material terms in writing
- Provides proper information on their insurance coverage
- Openly identifies the nature, location and ownership of the business and clearly discloses all policies, guarantees and procedures relevant to the customer
- Abides by all written agreements and verbal representations
- Does not offer or agree to cover the insurance deductible
The UASRC was formed in part to give property owners the information they need to make an informed decision in regards to their storm related repairs. The UASRC Facebook page has a lot of great information on the storm restoration industry. The UASRC also serves as a resource for property owners and contractors that have fallen victim to disreputable contractors, and insurance claim related issues.
