The current ARMR.Network, LLC insurance product development staff invented some of the policy forms that are routinely sold to restoration firms today. Their exceptionally knowledgeable team of insurance brokers and their suite of specially designed insurance products are simply unmatched in the industry. ARMR.Network, LLC is years ahead of their competitors in the restoration class of business. When we wanted to learn about the restoration business from the inside out we took the IICRC S500 classes. We did not realize at the time that the ARMR.Network, LLC staff years before had served on the consensus drafting committees of the IICRC to actually write the S500 and S520 standards and guidelines that we were learning about.
