What To Focus On After Water Damage

Make sure you fully understand the meaning of each of the following before you move forward. Feel free to reach out to us for a no-cost discussion about your claim.
  • Why should the county, city, town, or district optimize its claim?
  • Do we have a commitment to taxpayers to recover the most possible?
  • What if the insurance company engages a building consultant?
  • What is my agent/broker’s role?
  • Will my code upgrade coverage address all my code related issues? ADA, fire codes, etc.?
  • Is there coinsurance in my policy?
  • Do we need to issue an RFP in order to engage your services?
  • Who in our county, city, town, or district will be involved in making the decision to hire us?
  • Is your claim a result of an event that may be funded by FEMA? If so, it is your obligation to first maximize your insurance settlement to satisfy FEMA’s eligibility requirements.
  • Why can’t we do it ourselves?
  • What emergency facilities are necessary to continue operations?
  • Can temporary facilities still be used at the end of the claim and be considered permanent? If so, how?
  • How do existing plans for renovations or enhancements affect my claim?
  • What building codes and regulations must be considered in the reconstruction?
  • How do bond cycles affect the full replacement cost holdback provisions of a policy?

Government & Non-Profits We Have Helped

After a recent hail storm and subsequent water damage...Adjusters International understood our situation and they were willing to work with us. [You] became our advocate from day one, not only with the insurance carrier adjuster but also by working closely with our contractors to get the right cost figures. Particularly in regards to the HVAC units: originally, this part of the claim had been denied. Your communication and attention to detail was excellent. Thank you for navigating us through this claim.

When it started raining in our gym, all over our wood floor, I was in shock... I called my insurance company, and they gave me reason after reason why it probably wouldn't be covered...[Your public adjuster] was here that afternoon, examining the damage and evaluating the causes. I literally didn't have to do anything from that point on... Within just a few weeks, I received notification from the insurance company that they would be covering the loss... I couldn't have been more satisfied.
