An Orange County man says a roofing company hijacked his insurance claim for hail damage that didn’t exist.
Tony Annunziato blames the company for a questionable inspection and threats to sue his insurance company. He said he had a small roof leak, but an inspector from ELR Restoration claimed there was much more.
“They said hail damage, there were spots and marks on the shingles,” Annunziato said.
He heard his insurance would pay for a new roof, but he first had to sign an Assignment of Benefits, so ELR handled the claim.
Annunziato said it sounded like a free roof.
An insurance company inspector found only normal wear and tear, but no hail. Annunziato thought it was over, but then found out that ELR Restoration was going to sue his insurer for a new roof.
“That got me riled up. I was upset by that,” Annunziato said.
“No, absolutely not. No indication that hail had fallen in the area,” Brian Kuehner from Collis Roofing said after Action 9 asked him to do another inspection.
