Making An Insurance Claim After Flood & Water Damage
If your home suffers impact damage from a vehicle impacting your property or as a result of storm damage, serious structural damage can occur to a buildings superstructure. People often look at the aesthetics as being damaged but the consequences can be far more severe. Shoring up the property and ensuring you and your family are safe are our priority in this event. You will find your insurance company will be less friendly when you notify them of the claim. Unfortunately we find they are usually slow to react to enable them to check the claims validity and if you have complied with your policy contractual terms before they will accept the cost for even the smallest of works. You are often on your own to deal with the urgent emergency works needed to secure your property.
