Insurance Claims

Make sure all of your storm damage is identified and fixed with a Free Insurance Assessment for your home.

An insurance assessment after damage from hail, wind, rain or tornado is crucial to ensure that you get all the money you’re entitled to. Most of the time your roofing contractor or insurance adjustor is inexperienced at identifying window and door damage and will miss significant issues. Our expert accessors have decades of window and door experience. Our assessment may be critical to finding serious damage even if you’ve had other assessments completed.

Hurry! You generally only have 1 year from your date of loss to complete all work!

There are 3 primary aspects to the Insurance Claims process as it relates to windows and installation:

Initial Assessment

To begin, Pinnacle’s experienced scheduler will contact each homeowner to discuss the reason we have been asked to complete an assessment, what to expect during the assessment, and answer any questions. After setting the assessment appointment, we will follow-up with an email reiterating the appointment details and providing some written documentation of the process.

In the case of a loss to a condo/apartment complex, we may start our interaction with homeowners at an HOA meeting to discuss the project, the status of the insurance claim, and introduce key Pinnacle staff.

At the scheduled appointment time, Pinnacle will send its experienced assessor to inspect ALL windows and doors on the property. The assessor will evaluate all damage on the property and assess whether repair or replacement is the best option to return the property to a pre-damage condition. The goal of this process is to determine the full scope of the damage and determine what options are available.

Insurance Claim Process

Upon completion of our assessment we will create a detailed report to submit to the insurance carrier. We will include substantiation of our damage findings, a basis for our recommendation between repair or replacement, details of the scope for the project (including materials needed, services required, and pricing), and photos of the property damage. Upon submission, we will contact the insurance carrier to confirm receipt of the report.

Where we have been asked to negotiate directly with the insurance carrier, we will contact the carrier every 3-5 days to answer questions, provide additional information, and advocate for proper payment of the claim. The goal of this process is to provide you with a comprehensive report on the damage found at the property, our recommendations on how to return the property to a pre-damage condition, and (where requested) use our decades of expertise to get the insurer to properly pay the window portion of the claim.


Pinnacle understands that this is our most direct opportunity to provide excellent customer care. Our highly trained, Installation Masters® professional installers have been given the authority to do whatever it takes so that every homeowner is happy with the result of the project. Furthermore, our installers have a specially developed phone app to provide daily detailed reports of their work, any issues, and pictures.

In addition, at the end of each installation our Production Manager contacts each homeowner to make sure the homeowner is 100% satisfied and obtains a completion certificate. The goal of this process is to make sure information about the install process flows readily and that homeowners feel like they have received top-notch service.
