Robert spoke on the Florida Legislature side and let us know that there were programs put in place to help homeowners with disasters when it came to their personal expenses after the insurance company commits to their portion. Recently, $2 Billion dollars was passed to help homeowners.
Don’t forget, insurance companies have deeper pockets. They really don’t want to go to court because if the homeowner wins, the insurance company generally must pay all the court costs. However, many times the court may only award a little bit more than the original offer, which includes the new court costs. It is always a slippery slope.
One major outcome from our government is The Right to Repair One’s Roof. If more than 25% of your roof needs to be replaced from weather damage, a homeowner is entitled to a new roof, covered by your insurance company.
A final reminded came out of the Q and A: Beware of Door-to-door roofers. Nothing in life is free and you don’t know anything about that company. There are many scam artists around.
Next week, join us for our meeting when Lake Ray speaks on First Coast Manufacturing. See you at Fogo de Chao.
