Insurance Coverage, Response and Final Outcome

Insurance can be a wonderful lifesaver…when it protects what it was intended for. As a reminder, insurance companies have processes to ensure you claim is 100% compliant. There can be a technicality or circumstance within your policy that denies your claim. Being proactive and investing in Home Elevation in areas that are prone to flooding is the best route to go. There is no amount of money that will compensate for loss that has personal value to you.

Cost has risen and coverages vary

After storms like Irene and Super Storm Sandy, the insurance rates have risen and coverage/policies have changed because of the thousands of other people also making claims. The last claim you want to file is one that you could of prevented with a reasonable investment by planning ahead. We understand that it can be overwhelming so we invite you to contact one of our Home Elevation Specialists.

Being proactive and elevating your home

At any time the weather can work against us -- which is why it is important to weigh the risks and proactively plan your home elevation. During any major storm you can expect some type of damage, it is impossible to prevent everything. Most common damages after a storm involve roofing, windows, siding and ground & base flooding.

The advantage of investing in elevating your home is that you are able to bypass damages to your ground and base – which can be the most expensive and cause you to have to temporarily move out. Because the ground and base can be the most expensive and depending on the nearby damage, it can take a longer period of time for move-in approval and an insurance adjuster to approve any repair funds.

Mold is your worst enemy

When considering reasons to invest in Home Elevation, let Mold be one of the most important reasons why you elevate. There is no remediation and restoration company that will guarantee that mold will never return. When you elevate your home, you are protecting the base and ground from wet spots that if missed can cause health and financial problems in the future.
