Water Damage Repair
Most homeowner insurance policies do not cover water damages caused by plumbing disasters that occurred as a result of negligence or improper maintenance. Be sure to discuss these principles with your insurance company before any disasters occur so that you know exactly where you are covered and where you are not. A proper policy will cover hotel fees, reimbursement for personal belongings lost in the damages, mold remediation, home repairs, restorations, and more. If your homeowners’ insurance does not offer coverage for these kinds of incidents, you have the option of purchasing a policy through a third-party insurance provider. In other cases, home insurance policies do cover plumbing emergencies and water damages. It differs from company to company.
Once you have settled with your insurance company, it is important to locate a master plumber to come in and implement professional diagnostics in order to identify all weak spots, vulnerabilities, and needed plumbing repairs. This is vital if you wish to prevent further water damage and future floods. Once the plumber has been contacted and scheduled, you can then look for a reputable general contractor company for any needed structural or foundation repairs. This includes drywall, carpet, floors, windows, ceilings, beams, and more.
