I couldn’t help but notice all of the amazing photos that have come across the Eagle Eye Estimates facebook news feed. We’ve seen some pretty incredible hail stones, ranging from penny sized to softball sized! For contractors and roofers this can mean a burst of revenue to get 2014 started off. As a property owner it can mean bad news if you’re uninsured, but for those who pay those lofty premiums, this can mean a new roof, fencing, a paint job, new windshield and on and on. If you’ve experienced any damage to your property, you’ll want to file a claim as soon as possible. Make sure you take plenty of pictures of the damage, or have your contractor do so. You need to have a professional estimate written, to make sure that absolutely everything is accounted for where your damages are concerned. Whether you are the policy holder or a contractor and roofer, it’s a good idea to let a professional writing service write your estimate. It’s not that you don’t know what all the job entails, but lots of times in the heat of the moment you leave things off accidentally, not to mention all the time it takes to sit down and thoroughly itemize out every single piece and particle of the job, when you should be out getting more contracts.

PANAMA CITY BEACH — Financing for construction of Pier Park North shopping center has been approved, developers announced Tuesday.
U.S. Bank and a joint venture consisting of The St. Joe Company, CASTO and Strategic Retail Advisors announced Tuesday they have closed on a $46 million construction loan that will finance the new shopping center.
“Pier Park North, a 360,000 square foot shopping center, will be located across from Pier Park Lifestyle Center on U.S. 98 near the intersection of State 79 in Panama City Beach.
“The development of the Pier Park North shopping center is a positive sign for the local economy and we are excited to support the project with financing,” said John Hart, market manager for U.S. Bank Commercial Real Estate in Columbus in a prepared statement.
Pier Park North anticipates opening in spring of 2014.
Tenants will include Bed Bath & Beyond, Lee Nails & Spa, Mattress Firm, Men’s Warehouse, PetSmart, Rooms to Go and Shoe Carnival. The new tenants will join fellow national retailers Dick’s Sporting Goods, Michaels, Pier 1 Imports and Kirkland’s, which committed last fall to leasing space at Pier Park North.
“CASTO is pleased to have U.S. Bank as our lender for Pier Park North,” said Brett Hutchens, partner at CASTO. “We appreciate U.S. Bank’s commitment to funding both of our major, recent developments, Park West Village and now Pier Park North.””
The source doesn’t say who the contractor is that gets this whopper of a job, but Hoar Construction signs have been spotted on site. There are also other signs up that are not listed in this article as coming stores, such as Ross.

We at Eagle Eye Estimates were just doing a little research to see if there was any insight into what the 2014 storm season holds for us in the construction and insurance industry, and found this article. Apparently Global Weather Oscillations is the best long-term weather predictor for 8 years running, with a “90% hot spot accuracy rate”! It looks like they’ve predicted a pretty busy season for storms in 2014. Click this link to see the details for their 2014 storm predictions.
