Q: Why should I have my home inspected after a storm?
A: Storms can leave visible and "hidden" damage to your homes components or systems. Safety is always a number one concern when recovering from a major storm event. We also want to ensure that any necessary repairs are completed within the insurance companies statute of limitations so you are not liable for the damage done to your home.
Q: Will my insurance rates go up if I file a claim?
A: Typically if there is a major storm event in your area the insurance rates in your zip code are bound to increase regarless of you filing a claim or not. It depends on the type of policy you have and the insurance company that you are with.
Q: Can my insurance company drop my coverage if I file a claim?
A: A catastrophe claim is different then a negligence claim. A CAT claim is an act of God or an event that you can help, compared to a negligence claim where you may have been at fault in some way (leaving your stove on and catching your kitchen on fire). Insurance companies cannot drop you for filing a Catastrophe claim.
Q: Why should I have someone present during the adjusters assessment?
A: Most adjusters do a great job, they are also at times overwhelmed with work loads and other claims during a major event or at certain times of the year. We want to be there to be an advocate for you, someone who is familiar with your specific claim, and specific building codes for our area. The insurance company will send out their expert, we want you to send yours out too!
