Sarasota County Public Adjusters – Aftermath Adjusters & Consulting, LLC
The claims process, from determining damage to submitting forms to receiving appropriate compensation can be challenging. Not only do homeowners need to understand the process, but they are often dealing with high emotions.
No one wants to see their property, likely the biggest purchase of their lives, damaged. Nor do they want to deal with an insurance company and worry that their coverage won’t be sufficient to cover the damage despite understanding that having the right insurance coverage is important and that property damage is likely. Sadly, many learn that even doing everything in their power to insure against problems doesn’t mean the claims process will be easy.
The truth is that most homeowners have to fight to get a full settlement. You see, insurance companies do not have the interests of their policyholders at heart. Instead, they focus on their shareholders who want to see a profit at the end of the year. Because of this, insurance representatives will do what they can to deny claims or get homeowners to settle for less.
At Aftermath Adjusters & Consulting, we’ve seen this happen. Our Sarasota County team has helped your community members address these issues with insurance carriers, making sure they receive the compensation they deserve.
Whether you work with us from the beginning or contact us after you’ve had an underpaid or denied claim, we can help. If your Sarasota County property has been damaged, give us a call and let us go to work for you. Our team will leverage our 50+ years of professional experience to document damages, file reports, organize a plan of action, and negotiate with your insurance company so that your claim is successful.
The Complex Wind & Hurricane Damage Claims Process
Florida is a hurricane hotspot, and storm damage throughout the area is a regular occurrence. Unfortunately, Sarasota County has just recently experienced this with the devastation left behind by Hurricane Ian.
Long-time residents of Sarasota understand that even without a direct hit, the flooding and winds associated with hurricanes and tropical storms can cause a lot of damage. This damage can be very costly, which is why you want your insurance company to pay the claim quickly and fully.
Therefore, you will want to have a public adjuster assist you with the claims process. Allow Aftermath Adjusters & Consulting, LLC to help you get the settlement you deserve – without the stress of doing it yourself.
Roof Leak Damage Can Impact Your Entire Property
Even a small roof leak can cause extensive damage. However, the damage may or may not be covered by your insurance policy. It depends on the cause. Roof leaks as a result of a storm, including wind, trees and limbs, and even lightning, may be covered. A public adjuster can help determine the cause.
Our Sarasota County team at Aftermath Adjusters & Consulting, LLC helps clients obtain a fair settlement for roof leak damage. We will:
– Inspect your roof, as well as the entire property
– Identify the cause of the roof leak
– Document our findings
– File a claim
Because of our experience and expertise, we know what insurance companies need to see to accept a claim.
Water Leaks are Highly Damaging
Even a very small amount of water can cause a significant amount of damage. If the leak is not addressed quickly, that damage continues to grow. At first, the damage is limited to water stains, mold, and mildew. Eventually, it can become structural damage. That’s why time is so critical when dealing with water leak claims.
Our team has experience with water damage claims. Call Aftermath Adjusters & Consulting, LLC today. We will quickly inspect your property, assess the damage, identify the source of the problem, document everything, and get you moving toward complete restoration.
The Impacts of Mold Damage On Your Property and Your Health
If you hear the word “mold” and panic, you are not alone. Mold remediation can be costly, and left untreated, it can cause major property damage and even ruin your health. Unfortunately, mold is not always covered by your insurance company – unless it is due to a covered event. Even then, it may be difficult to prove.
Our Sarasota County team will inspect your property, determine the cause of the mold, attend inspections, prepare estimates, and complete forms so that the claims and negotiations process can begin. Because we know what insurance companies need to see and we make sure they have it, you have a greater chance of getting compensation quickly.
The Key to Fire and Smoke Damage Compensation
Fire and smoke damage can be devastating. Even though these are covered damages, many fires and smoke claims are denied for one simple reason – the lack of the proper forms. That’s why, once you are safely out of harm’s way, you need to contact the Sarasota County fire department.
They will come to your property – even if they don’t need to put out the flames – and generate a report that is needed by your insurance company. Without this report, your claim may be denied.
Hidden Damage from Cast Iron Pipes
Sarasota County was formed in 1921. During the first 50 years of its existence, homes were built in the area using cast iron pipes. Unfortunately, these pipes do not last, and homes that still have these pipes have begun experiencing damage due to decay.
If your home was built prior to 1974, we recommend getting an inspection. We will help you identify whether your home has cast iron pipes, what shape the pipes are in, what damage has occurred, and what you need to do to mitigate those damages.
Even if you don’t have any of the signs of damage – gurgling pipes, insects, foul odors, backed-up sinks, or slow drains – you may still have problems. The longer you leave them, the more likely they are to cause costly structural damage.
