18 Replies and 23149 Views Is it us(cat.adjusters) or Them?(law firms)  23149  18 Started by  Ray Hall This is hurricane IKE specific. I do not know how many property losses were filed. About 15 law firms are running TV adds for low settlements, tag team adjusters and other slogan in the Houston-Beaumont area.From the adds you are led to think thousands of people have reopened their claim by one law firm     ** I have edited my post of 6.17.09.

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )

9 Replies and 7837 Views Thermal Movement  7837  9 Started by  rbryanhines Was wondering if anyone has ever heard of asphalt shingles being effected by thermal movement&160;Please describe. Also trying find a unit cost per square for resealing wind lifted shingles. Xactimate has a cost of around $35-$39 per square however appears to&160;be for hand sealing a newly installed roof in a cool climate. Anythoughts on this topic or unit cost from a different data base. Thanks&160;&160;

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
I don't believe, after looking at all weather information available, including my airmans weather information, that Fay is going to do much damage. It is just not going to develop into much of a hurricane, if at all. Citizens is attempting to deploy a number of desk adjusters and field teams, prematurely I think. I just hope they are going to pay all the feet on the ground if this does not amount to much. I don't think this will amount to much.

3 Replies and 5763 Views 2007 Hurricane Season & La Nina  5763  3 Started by  Jud G. I realize that most of you are already aware of the potential effects of the upcoming La Nina (if it occurs).  Yet, since no one's posted about it, here's some generic information from the AP: Keep in mind, 2006 was predicted to be a hectic season full of landfalling hurricanes, but the scientists never predicted El Nino to push them all out to sea (nor to make landfall).  Use this time to get prepared.

12 Replies and 8605 Views 2006 Hurricane Predictions  8605  12 Started by  TomW I am not familiar with how to bring in archived posts, but I think there was a contest on where and when the first Atlantic Hurricane will make landfall. If I remember correctly, I predicted a non-event Hurricane season.  Wow...I think I won. Please don't take this the wrong way, I know some are probably really needing the work.  I know, I have been there too.  Making it through this type of year is an important necessity as an IA.  Good luck.
