Tweetable Quotes:

  • “If you don’t know what your carriers are saying, for homeowners, whether it’s your policy or one that you’re selling, you better find out whether or not that roof is going to be valued at replacement cost or diminished value.” – David Carothers
  • Let me ask you a question. You ever been injured and go to urgent care? What are the first two questions that you’re asked? Was this an auto accident? Was this a work-related injury? Your health plan is more than likely not going to pick up coverage if you willfully filed an exemption and got injured on the job.” – David Carothers
  • “I would say a lot of the stuff with contractors that we see is centered around the subcontractors and not reporting them.” – Kyle Houck
