2021 is already giving 2020 a run for its money!
As February temps dropped near and below zero across north Texas, millions of residents lost power to their homes and businesses. Inches of snow fell and roadways became icy and dangerous. As building interiors and attics dropped below the freezing mark pipes began to freeze and burst across the metroplex.
Pipe bursts cause serious water damage to the interiors of homes and commercial buildings. Shutting off water is usually the first priority, and the dry-out should start as quickly as possible. Water from these events makes its way into walls and underneath flooring, often requiring the floors to be torn up and discarded in order to thoroughly dry out the structure. Drywall needs to be removed and an anti-microbial agent must be applied to framing and other building components left in place to make sure mold growth does not develop.
Insurance claims of this nature are complex and take time to settle. Insurance companies usually respond as quickly as possible but their adjusters often lack experience to accurately estimate remediation and repair costs.
You have the right and ability to hire your own adjuster to document your loss and negotiate a fair settlement. Don't settle for pennies on the dollar, make sure you have adequate funds to properly restore your property. Most policies will have additional coverages for things like contents and additional living expenses. A licensed public adjuster can help with these parts of your claim as well.
