Marcus and David Yoder were born and raised in the Amish heartland of Arthur, Illinois. Growing up on a farm with a carpenter father, they naturally enjoyed building things that last. With their love of carpentry and great friendship as brothers, Marcus and David launched D&M Construction in 2016, and rebranded as I-57 Roofing in 2020.

Storm Damage Restoration
Storm Damage Restoration
A devastating storm can cause catastrophic damage to your roof and home. Before taking any action (even with your insurance company), you need a reliable, professional contractor in your corner to develop and implement an effective storm damage restoration plan.
At I-57 Roofing, we possess the skills, knowledge, tools, and experience to walk you through the entire process of restoring your residential home or commercial building. We are licensed, bonded, and insured to repair, restore, and replace your roof following any storm-related calamity.
Immediate Steps To Take Following A Storm
Before meeting with your insurance company or the adjuster, follow these tips (and read these additional tips) to protect your interests best when filing an insurance claim.
- Document everything.Following a storm, safely take photos and video of your property, including any debris or wreckage you can observe. If your roof has visible signs of damage, do not directly access your roof to obtain up-close visual proof. Instead, immediately communicate with your roofing company to secure documented evidence to accurately reflect any damage to your roof. Act upon this step immediately, even if you do not observe visible signs of roof damage from ground level.
- Review your homeowner’s insurance policy.The more information you have at your disposal, the greater the likelihood you will receive a successful outcome to your insurance claim. Reading your policy closely provides invaluable guidance. Consulting with your contractor about your policy enables your contractor to advocate more intensely on your behalf. Your insurance company may not necessarily act in your best interests. But a trustworthy contractor will want to do what benefits you the most.
- Meet with your roofing company.An immediate inspection of your roofing system following a storm lets your contractor document visible and hidden signs of damage. Taking this step at the outset significantly improves your chances of successfully navigating the insurance claim process. Having your contractor consult with you immediately following a storm also helps your contractor temporarily mitigate further damage to your home until permanent restoration work can occur.
Avoid Storm Chasers; Choose A Trusted, Local Roofing Contractor
A violent, destructive storm blows through your area. Countless homes and businesses experience wind, hail, or storm damage. Immediately, contractors from who knows where begin stopping by your home to offer their assistance. Before signing up with an out-of-state roofing company, consider your options carefully. Making the wrong decision may have considerable adverse consequences, including unwelcome delays.
Restoring your roof following a storm may take weeks or months (even if you want everything resolved quickly and correctly). You need a local contractor who will be available through the entire insurance claim process (and even afterward should any post-restoration issues arise.) Hiring I-57 Roofing guarantees that a local roofing company familiar with Central Illinois will assist you responsibly and professionally.
