ATLANTA — GAF and Westhill, a leading digital managed repair platform company, announced a partnership to benefit property owners who have suffered property damage and subsequently filed an insurance claim.
Policyholders will have access to GAF’s Master Elite and Certified Professional roofing contractors via Westhill’s platform, providing them with a more efficient and transparent process for repairing and restoring roof damage and other exterior-damage claims. Through this partnership, GAF and Westhill will provide insurance carriers and their customers access to premium quality products and services, as well as an end-to-end digital experience to manage repairs on homes and commercial properties after a loss.
“We are thrilled to partner with GAF to offer our carrier partners and their policyholders’ access to its large contractor network across the U.S.," said Kevin Reilley, CEO of Westhill. "These organizations are known for doing high quality work, and we will leverage our platform, in combination with the GAF service network, to provide an easier path back to pre-loss condition for owners who have suffered roof and exterior damage to their properties."
As insurance companies look to provide new and safer ways to engage policyholders following a loss, the Westhill managed repair platform is at the forefront of making it easier for carriers to assist in the repair, as opposed to simply offering a cash settlement. Property owners can select a top contractor then track and manage the status of their project through a transparent and streamlined process, resulting in faster cycle times and an overall better customer experience.
“We are focused on building ecosystem partnerships that provide our contractors access to new opportunities that help them grow their businesses, and this partnership with Westhill is another example of leveraging technology and relationships for growth, while helping property owners get their lives back to normal,” said Chris Rector, GAF chief marketing officer.
