Why Not Let A Contractor Handle My Claim?
Insurance policies are complex and most contractors are not used to dealing with the issues of depreciation and co-insurance. In addition, contractors will low-bid a project in hopes of securing a job. A situation that will only limit your settlement. In Texas and several other states, it is illegal negotiate an insurance claim, unless you have a license to do so. This is called “Unauthorized Public Adjusting” (UPPA) and can cause the insured very serious problems.
Shouldn't I Just Assume The Insurance Company Adjuster Will Take Care Of Me?

While most insurance company adjusters would like to be fair, not too many people can serve two masters. It is very easy and very common for even the most honest adjusters to underpay a claim. The reasons for this can be poor training, too heavy of a workload, and a bureaucracy that is motivated by profit.

Why Not Handle The Loss Myself?
Generally, the more thorough and complete the claim investigation and evaluation, the higher the settlement will be. We meticulously inspect the loss and document the damages. Having a professional who is looking out for your best interests and who understands the claims process is invaluable.
Will I Still Be Involved?
We will consult with you and gain your consent before sending a loss package to the insurance company. No final settlement will be made without your approval.
