About Tom Allen
Tom started his career in insurance restoration and contracting in Atlanta, GA where he settled claims with the insurance carriers on behalf of homeowners who sustained hail, water, and wind damage. Tom sat for the insurance adjusters’ test and earned his license and soon after worked as an Independent Adjuster working claims from Michigan to Missouri. The claims included large loss fire claims, hail, wind, vehicle damage, and theft.
In early November 2012, Tom was called up to work Superstorm Sandy losses by Allstate. He worked on flood claims where damages ranged from a couple of inches of water in a basement to entire homes pushed off their foundations and collapsed. This fanned the flame to help people with damaged or dingy basements and start Allen Restoration.
Our Humble Beginnings
In 2014 Tom was recruited by a Chicago restoration company to write large losses. In insurance lingo, any loss over $40,000 is a large loss. Tom mostly wrote estimates for house fires and bigger water losses. In 2015 he started Allen Restoration Group. Here, he leverages his experience in both contracting and insurance adjusting to bring insurance restoration and remodeling jobs in on time and on budget.
