HAAG Engineering Certified Roof Inspector MN 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010.
Haag Engineering has been the cornerstone in evaluating storm damage, and often has the final say in storm damage insurance cases when two parties have differences in opinion. The Haag perspective and understanding of roofing systems and knowledge of composition shingles is second to none, and is recognized in the storm damage industry. Only Haag Certified Roof Inspectors are armed with this intellectual property.
Chris Olson, one of 2 original co-investors in Berkeshire Exteriors soon became one of the first Haag Certified Hail Damage Inspectors in Minnesota. With its Haag Engineer Certified designation, Berkeshire Exteriors adds instant credibility to homeowners and their interaction with the insurance companies. Berkeshire Exteriors will include the full resources, knowledge, and practice of this important designation exclusively to its clients as part of storm damage restoration and roofing, siding, and windows projects as needed.
When meeting with insurance claim adjusters and those working on behalf of insurance companies evaluating storm damage, this knowledge and certification is extremely valuable when representing property owners.
