More and more homeowners are filing insurance claims and lawsuits over toxic mold, and insurance companies are worried the claims could overwhelm them.

“The insurance companies thought the asbestos problem was enormous, and this is going to make that look small,” said Jeff Greene, a public insurance adjuster.

If you feel your home or business may have a mold issue, contact a qualified, licensed Mold Assessor and General Contractor that works directly with your insurance company.

2017 Atlantic Hurricane Season Activity Forecast

The 2017 Atlantic hurricane season forecast released Thursday from Colorado State University calls for the number of named storms and hurricanes to be slightly below historical averages.

A total of 11 named storms, 4 hurricanes and 2 major hurricanes are expected this season, according to the forecast prepared by the CSU Tropical Meteorology Project, headed by Dr. Phil Klotzbach.

Q: What Does This Mean For Central Florida?

There is no strong correlation between the number of storms or hurricanes and U.S. landfalls in any given season. One or more of the 12 named storms forecast to develop this season could hit the U.S., or none at all. Therefore, residents of the coastal United States should prepare each year no matter the forecast.

Being prepared includes knowing a contractor who provides an immediate response, and works directly with your insurance company to repair your property quickly with no hassle to you, so that you can reclaim your home quickly.

Fire Damage Repair – Condo Case Study

Many times, construction firms will make mistakes that can cause unseen structural damage. In this case, the previous construction company used blow torches to seal new asphalt and during the process accidentally torched the adjacent structure.

Colyer Services was retained to fix the damage. The first step was to assess the damage through demolition of the exterior stucco and then repair the underlying structure. At the end of the project, the client was very happy with the results.

  • Saved client time and money.
