Cardinal Catastrophe Services is an innovative storm related damage recovery and restoration firm with offices in Edwardsville, IL and Maplewood, MO. Cardinal Catastrophe 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 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 takes pride in the way we approach our business. We take a full tour of each 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 does). 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 set immediately to work, and our staff is held to a strict safety, cleanliness, and respectability code from the very start. We always leave every 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. 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 insurer.
As an advocate to both the community and the risk industry, Cardinal Catastrophe 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 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 is a locally 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 and Troy. 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. If you see our baby blue trucks in your neighborhood, give us a wave!
