You’ve Flooded Your Apartment
A loss like this can be very traumatic. Luckily, we’ve done this for 20 years and are very familiar with the insurance process.
Let’s share an extreme example of a claim we handled. The client called us, and we inspected the damage.
There were two inches of water on the floor. The wallpaper was peeling, and mold was growing up from the baseboard.
The first thing we did was call the broker and put the insurance company on notice. The insurance company sent out the adjuster and construction consultant.
We remained to set the baseline for the size of the claim – this is very important.
While this was happening, we had a team of real estate agents helping the client find short-term accommodation.
The moving company was inventorying the space and getting ready to move everything out.
Ultimately, our construction team went in. 6.5 months later, the apartment was restored to its original condition.
The insurance company paid out the settlement, and this situation went from a very traumatic experience for the client to simply an inconvenience.
You have one shot at this. A good general contractor will have the right team in place that will take you through the process and put your home back together as if nothing ever happened.
