When disaster strikes, you’ll very likely need to work with your insurance company to determine whether you can salvage your property and if there is any financial assistance they can provide. You will also likely be looking into construction companies that know their way around restoration projects, especially after an emergency situation.
Unfortunately, many contractors don’t provide insurance assistance, and a home or business owner is left to deal with the details of both the cleanup and the insurance claims process. What may be most helpful to you, however, is making sure you have a contractor who is knowledgeable about both the restoration process and has experience working with insurance companies.
One of the most important reasons you want a builder who helps with insurance claims is because it can ease the level of communication you need to have as the third-party messenger. Your builder can not only provide sound advice about the best methods for restoration, but they can also work with your insurance adjuster to determine the total cost of your project and the estimated timeline. This leaves you, the property owner, more time to focus on the cleanup and other important details, which can be a huge burden lifted.
Another reason to work with a builder who can provide insurance claims assistance is because you can enjoy greater certainty that your claim is filed correctly. You can avoid sifting through paperwork or filing your claim twice by selecting a builder who can help you with the most important parts of an insurance claim during emergency restoration.
