Ice Dam Insurance Claims
Do you have damage resulting from an ice dam? If you are going to involve your insurance company in a home repair project, you really should involve a company like the Ice Dam Company in the process. The Kuhl family of companies, besides having architects, designers and carpenters on staff, also employs a former insurance adjuster, Pete, who has over 30 years experience in writing restoration estimates. We can be a powerful advocate for a homeowner not only during the insurance claim process itself, but also in the restoration process for your home repairs.
The Claim Process:
How does it usually work?
The first step. Call your insurance agent and discuss the damage. More than likely your insurance company will send out an adjuster to assess the damage. That adjuster will take photos, measurements and notes on all affected areas and provide you with a detailed report and estimate for repairs. Often done on the spot, the adjuster might even write you a check for a portion of the repairs with the remaining balance coming once the repairs have been made and documented.
Believe it or not your insurance company does not always act in your best interest. While they might write a check to help cover the damages, often times it isn’t enough. Plus the process of settling a claim can stretch out for weeks or even months.
Early on in the insurance claim process it is quite beneficial to involve a company like the Ice Dam Company who has experience in the insurance restoration process. See below for more details on why you’d want our help.
