Cardinal Catastrophe Services is an innovative storm related damage recovery and restoration firm with offices in Edwardsville, IL and Maplewood, MO. Cardinal Catastrophe Services specializes in recognizing storm damage, pursuing insurance claims for repair or replacement of the damaged area, and then completion of the restoration work at a level that exceeds our customer's expectations. Cardinal Catastrophe Services was founded to ensure that the residents of the St. Louis Metro area had an advocate for their needs when damage from a storm threatens their quality of life.
Cardinal Catastrophe Services takes pride in the way we approach our business. We take a full tour of our client's property, identifying all storm related damage that may be covered under their insurance policy. We execute our property inspection in the exact same manner as an insurance adjuster. We then take an active approach to filing your claim, ensuring that the insurance adjuster has all of the information they need to process your claim and restore your roof. Once your claim is approved, we immediately begin work, and our staff is held to a strict safety, cleanliness, and respectability code from the very start. We always leave every work-site clean and completely finished, but if our clients find ANY problems with our work, we will repair that work immediately.
The face of our business and how we employ our market strategy is guided by humility. We don't pressure, up sell, or mislead our clients, and are upfront about our business from the very beginning. We humbly walk around neighborhoods in our area and knock on doors, talking to friends and neighbors candidly about our company and our services. You may see us in your neighborhood - feel free to stop us and ask any questions about your roof or insurance policy. We aim to educate our community at all times.
Since we conduct our property inspections in the same manner as an insurance adjuster would, we may recommend not filing a claim if we are sure it wouldn't get fulfilled. Additionally, we will respectfully walk away from a client that we feel may be trying to cheat their insurance provider.
As an advocate to both the community and the risk industry, Cardinal Catastrophe Services aims to provide maximum services to both. With each client, we aim to assist them with their claim from start to finish, making it as easy and painless as possible. Our knowledge and understanding of the risk industry shows how we provide our service - we provide free inspections, ladder assistants, follow all insurance company requirements and provide emergency 24-hour service. Our satisfied customers all speak to the same.
Cardinal Catastrophe Services is a locally- and family-owned and operated business. We take pride in being part of the vibrant community of the Metro East area, including the cities of Edwardsville, Glen Carbon, Maryville, Collinsville, Highland, Troy and O'Fallon. With our new office in Maplewood, MO, we have expanded our operations to service the entire west side of the St. Louis Metro area, from downtown to Chesterfield.

Cardinal Catastrophe Services, Inc. was started by Aaron Specht, CEO, President and Senior Executive Project Manager. Aaron grew up in Minnesota and was one of the founders of the Winona State University (Minnesota) Rugby Football Club. Aaron played semi-professional Rugby for 17 years including extended seasons with noted National Rugby teams Lincoln Park R.F.C. (Chicago), The Atlanta Renegades, Oconomowoc Griffins (Milwaukee), and The Denver Harlequins. Aaron was also selected to the All State-All Star teams in both Wisconsin and Georgia. Aaron was an Operations Management Executive with Fastenal Company, followed by on-site operations turnaround consulting. With over 17 years of executive industrial and residential industry management and sales, Aaron turned his focus to insurance restoration projects. Aaron first opened a storm restoration division for a local small contractor and brought in $2 million in new sales - nearly all insurance related. Recognizing the need for a competent and specialized roofing restoration firm in the Metro East area, Aaron decided to found his own company. Cardinal Catastrophe Services, Inc. was born and quickly became the most reputable roofing contractor in the area. Affectionately known as "Card Cat," Aaron and his team continue to earn accolades and awards. Cardinal Catastrophe Services has clearly demonstrated achieving the mission of being "First in Storm Damage."
