Insurance claim repairs to your home

You want your insurance policy to protect your assets and do what it is supposed to do in the event of a covered loss, which is to restore you to resemble pre-loss conditions. A key distinction that many home and business owners do not make is the one between an insurance agent and an insurance adjuster.

  • Your insurance agent is the local representative with whom you consulted and purchased your insurance policy from. Often when you make a claim you will contact this person as they are the face of the company for you.

  • Once a claim is filed, you will be working with an insurance adjuster. This is the person, or persons, who will help to assess and determine what is covered and/or excluded from your policy as it relates to the claim.
