Fire Claims: What you can Expect
A fire will cause many different types of damage and to the untrained eye much of the damage can go undetected.
The multiple effects of fire damage include:
- firefighter efforts to extinguish
All of these phenomenon converge to leave owners of a home, building, and personal property with complex decisions to be made regarding how to remedy the situation.
Insurers have their own business interests driving their thoughts. Restoration contractors are motivated by which option makes them the most money. Your agent may have a profit/loss ratio to consider.
Do you replace, clean, recondition or repair? How can you be certain of which remedy to use?
Would you rather use the insurance money to buy new clothes, new furniture, new bedding?
Would you want fire soot left inside the walls or would you want it removed completely?
Your insurance policy language allows for all methods of remedy to be an option.
Who dictates the remedy? Who has the knowledge to help you make the right choice?
