Natural disaster claims are often stressful because you are already under extreme stress, and now you have to convince someone to fairly compensate you for the damage. Knowing what to expect and what you need to do when dealing with an insurance adjuster can make a big difference. For instance, it determines how quickly the insurance company will pay and help you get you back on track. NC Rebuild, Inc., your trusted roofing contractor, discusses how to go about this process:
Rejecting the Settlement Offer
You are not obligated to accept the insurance adjuster’s offer, especially if it is not what you deserve. Your house is a mess, and you are significantly inconvenienced. With that in mind, the frustration might start to set in, but remember to keep your cool and avoid venting. This a business negotiation, so do not let the adjuster force you into accepting an amount. Also, don’t sign anything without reading it carefully and fully understanding what it entails.
Our expert residential roof repair team at NC Rebuild will work with you through the process and provide all the necessary assistance to ensure a fruitful negotiation and a settlement offer that is agreeable to all parties.
Increasing Your Chances of Receiving a Fair Payout
It is important to be fully prepared for the insurance adjuster’s visit. Make sure that all your losses are recorded. This way, the process can go on a lot faster and the negotiation can be quickly sorted out. Here are some things to consider:
Review your insurance policies and familiarize yourself with the details of the policy coverage and responsibilities.
Schedule a proper inspection by asking a contractor to assess the damage. Take note of all the areas that you’d like the insurance adjuster to see.
Document all the damage found by taking pictures or videos.
