Thanks Phantom. I knew you had an excellent mind by your posts. Brotherhood is the answer.

To Watts:
Lot of truth in what you say, but why not just keep silent? Most of us agree with you some of the time, but see no need to comment at another's expense.
Jim and a couple of others are trying to make something worthwhile out to this site rather than the same old garbage.
Lets help him.

With all that experience working Floyd and Irene,and all the hail down there.
Well, i was just thinking that the site finally got past that nonsence.

Umm, LWatts, that ignorance, not ignorants.

Or, as they say in West Virginia, it is a shame when cousins marry.

INBRED IGNORANTS IS THE ANSWER. Kinda like these guys that think they are walking a 12/12 or 14/12 pitch roof. They may go up a valley or straddle the ridge, but they are not able to walk it.

You have also heard of the so called adjusters that have 6 months training 40 times to equal his 20 years in the business. We all know them.

Best answer I know.

Perhaps a salesmans eyes, see things differently from a contractor eyes and differently from an adjuster's eyes.
Ive been on roofs where the contractor/salesman was jumping up and down swearing it was hail or whatever. Just didn't agree, or found it to be old damage, blems, defective shingles,etc, and we do get a few hailstorms a year out here in E Texas. Not argueing with you just a point.

Well with no deployment lately, I found myself back in the roofing business in a small East Texas town and I have found on several occasions where the adjuster had improperly mis-scoped the damages. When I contacted the adjuster for a reinspect, they were not very nice. I would think, if an adjuster had 20+ years experirence, he would at least scope the damages correctly. now I am sure someone reading this knows what I am talking about. I understand that closing the file is on the mind but it seams to me the more the damage--the more the money. On one instance, a Germania adjuster, who was a independent, told the insured there was only a few hail hits on the roof when in reality, there was at least 25 hits to a square. Needless to say he had to make another wasted trip to the loss and do it again.
Can someone out there tell me why veteran adjusters do these things?? Are they out for the quick buck?? Or they just getting old and not seeing the damage??
I will not mention names or who they work for cause there are several of them. I know I can scope damages better than them on any day.
