Ladder Assist

We provide a detailed roof inspection

A Ladder Assist begins when one of our expert inspectors meets the Adjuster or Engineer onsite. We’re there to access all roof types, no matter how steep or tall, and provide a detailed Roof Inspection. Our inspection is intended to allow the adjuster to make an accurate and complete settlement decision from relative safety so their focus remains on customer service and retention of the insured customer.
