Springtime is a season filled with dynamic weather events such as heavy rainfall, flooding, and tornadoes. Making sure your home is protected is extremely important. Officially, spring begins March 20, but meteorological spring, which meteorologists and climatologists consider the start of spring, begins on March 1.
Weather events are often out of our control, with no measure of preparation adequate enough to ward off Mother Nature’s mighty forces. If the roof of your home is hit with pellets of hail and you’re facing a roof damage insurance claim, you may feel overwhelmed with the impending process of negotiations and potential pushback from your insurance company.
But you don’t have to face this tedious process on your own. Hiring a Professional Public Adjuster can help relieve the stress of navigating the claims process on your own. Your insurance company will have their own adjuster that will inspect your property and evaluate the damage, but as a business, the insurance company will be looking to protect their best interests and may leave you with a less-than-ideal settlement.
A public adjuster works for the policyholder and has no ties to your insurance company. K-Factor Advocates’ team of public adjusters have extensive experience in construction, which isn’t always in the insurance company adjuster’s repertoire. Having a sharp eye for construction-related details is extremely important in accurately assessing the damage your home has sustained.
As the only property loss professionals who work on the policyholder’s behalf, having a public adjuster on your side may prevent your insurance company from potentially lowballing you on their settlement offer. Public adjusters’ loyalties and interests align with the policyholder, leading to a more thorough analysis of the damage than company adjusters.
The claims process can be time-consuming, emotional, and extremely stressful, which is why hiring a public adjuster to help relieve some of the burden can be such a relief for some policyholders. Having an experienced professional handling the negotiations with your insurance company is sure to take some of the weight off of your shoulders.
We’re not all insurance experts. Interpreting the technical language of your homeowner’s insurance policy can sometimes be daunting, and with the repair of your home on the line, you’ll want to be sure you don’t miss a thing. Public adjusters have scrupulously examined many different insurance policies and know exactly what to look for.
Hiring a Public Adjuster won’t cost you anything outright. Public adjusters are paid from a percentage of the insurance claim settlement, so you’re both working toward the same goal. The higher settlement the public adjuster can get for you, the higher amount they will receive in compensation. There’s little to lose and a lot to gain through hiring a public adjuster.
