About the contractor

Dottrio, LLC is a licensed MD public adjuster firm and a licensed MD general contractor with experience in all aspects of the insurance claims and restoration process. Our status as a licensed public adjuster firm and licensed general contractor allows us to assist property owners in the insurance claims process in ways in which our competitors cannot. We are able to handle your property insurance claim from beginning to end with little to no involvement required on your part. A public adjuster is the only entity other than the insured (homeowner/property owner) that is legally allowed to represent the interests of the insured and negotiate with the insurance company. We are to the world of property insurance claims what lawyers are to the world of courtrooms. Typical general contractors including "insurance restoration contractors" do not have the experience and licensing required to deal with your insurance company, we do!

I would recommend against adding a layer to an existing roof. The best means of ensuring a proper installation is to to do a complete tear off down to the sheathing. Read full answer

How we do this is more complicated. BuildZoom is a database of every licensed contractor in the United States. We work hard to figure out who the great contractors are, and who the bad contractors are.

BuildZoom combines license information on 3.5 million contractors with 75 million building permits, and over 80,000 reviews from homeowners and the Better Business Bureau.

If you are looking for a specific contractor and you can’t find them on BuildZoom, it’s likely that they do not have a license - please contact us and we’ll try to help!
