Insurance claims can be tricky, especially when it involves a large home or a business. Most property owners will call their insurance company first to begin the process, but that may not always be the best choice.
Calling a public adjuster is a decision that will save you countless hours and thousands of dollars. Even Consumer Reports recommends hiring a public adjuster to get professional help with a property damage insurance claim.
For significant loss situations, the insurance claim can be very complex. You will be required to complete mitigations steps to produce a detailed proof of loss report, and you will need to have expert understanding of your policy terms.
For claims where significant restoration work is needed, you will also need expertise in property damage assessment and costs to rebuild or repair.
