If your home or business was damaged by ice storms and major wind storms, there are CRITICAL STEPS YOU MUST FOLLOW:

1. Take Pictures of Your Damage.

Back up, take wide shots, and take more than you think are needed.  We will usually take over 120 pictures of any loss when we act as your Public Adjuster. This is Key to winning a fair settlement.

2. Do Not Throw Away Your Damaged Contents Yet.

Take pictures of the damage to the contents, but do not throw them out prior to proper assessment by your insurance company and Public Adjuster.

3. Wait to Hire Labor for the Repairs — Briefly

We don't tell you not to repair your property, but we do want you to consider key items that will help us settle your claim before you hire the labor to fix the property. As your Public Adjuster we will help you avoid the pitfalls many experience when entering this process. Sometimes how you hire labor will determine the speed at which you are paid for your claim by as much as 6 months.

Just as your Insurance company has their own interest in mind, we as your Public Adjuster, only have your interest as our focus!
