No, we’re not talking about us. Although, we should be. The team at Restumping Melbourne is pleased as punch to be as good at what we do and still love it as much as we do. It didn’t come easily – it took *decades* of hard lessons, takeaways and brainstorming about how to be the best in the business. But it was worth it – every single minute. And you know what one of the biggest takeaways was? That you always need to learn from the expert.
The expert can be anyone. And there’s a reason that we’re not putting it in capital letters, because we believe that everyone can be an expert in their own right. Some are born with it, some learn with it, and some say that they want nothing to do with it. The biggest reason that we started the Restumping Melbourne blog is that we knew we had expertise to share with the world. The biggest reason that we’re starting this series, is that we know that we’re not the only ones who have something to share with the world.

“Mike Redman, president and owner of HVR, is a local contractor with more than 20 years of storm damage and home remodeling experience. He is a trusted business owner and reputable contractor in his industry. Redman looks to educate homeowners before they are in dire need of his services and expertise. He said it really begins with educating homeowners about how to shop for property or homeowner’s insurance.
“Educating people before they buy insurance is the ideal situation,” Redman said. “In a perfect world, we would start the conversation at the point where the homeowner is shopping for insurance. Typically, people just call the agent and company that they’ve been with the longest and get a quote for a homeowner’s policy to cover a major catastrophe and to satisfy a mortgage company’s requirement. Homeowners will ask for a $500 or $1,000 deductible policy quote but may not ask anything else—for instance, what, if any, exclusions are written in the policy regarding wind or hail damage? What most people don’t realize is that storm damage can come with exclusions and a 1% deductible, which is different than the $500 or $1,000 deductible that is stated in the policy.”
He makes all of the right points, and only serves as the jumping-off point for this series. Stay tuned for much more information about those in ALL of our industries, who are truly making a difference and paving the way.
