How To Expedite The Claim Process
After the insurance adjuster has been to your home:
Go over the insurance estimate with your estimator, making sure all damages are included from your insurance company.
Once your claim has been reviewed, you can start making decisions about colors and styles. You should only have to make (2) decisions in this process the color of materials used on your home and the contractor you want to work with.
Next, it is important that you sign an agreement with your contractor, to start the repair process on your home.
Your estimator will start working on your repairs immediately.
Your estimator will take care of all paperwork, required to complete all the repairs outlined in your insurance adjusters estimate. (If the estimate from your insurance company is determined not to be complete for all your repairs, your estimator will meet your insurance companies’ representative and assist you, in recovering all compensation to complete the repairs to your home.)
