All Canadians – especially those of us who work in insurance – are becoming mindful of our changing weather patterns. In many cases, these changes have been very dramatic. Since the beginning of 2018, there have been numerous severe storms across parts of Canada.
In 2018, homeowners and businesses across Ontario experienced several major windstorms as well as severe ice and rain event and winter is just beginning. As a result, our industry has had thousands of claims reported across all markets and some adjusting and restoration companies, particularly roofing contractors, are running out of capacity. After-hours service providers for most insurance companies are seeing unprecedented levels of phone activity. Every available resource has been mobilized to answer these calls. Nevertheless, customers will face disruptive service over the coming days.
