Getting Started

Step 1

Let us take a COMPLIMENTARY  look at the property/damage.  Although we will not initially perform a complete ‘Architectural and Engineering Building Damage Assessment Report’, this will provide us an opportunity to become familiar with the scope of the damage.

Step 2

Let us provide a COMPLIMENTARY review of your insurance policy.  Our Public Adjustor will conduct a comprehensive review in order to determine the maximum allowable settlement potential.

Step 3

Let us provide a COMPLIMENTARY review of your insurance company settlement offer (if you have this).  Our staff of licensed Architects, Engineers and Contractors, in coordination with our Public Adjustor, can ascertain whether the settlement offer is sufficient to make the necessary repairs, or whether the settlement utilizes all applicable provisions of your insurance policy.

Should you elect to then retain our services, we can assist with the following:

  • Assist you in complying with your policy’s requirements, such as mitigating further damage, and being aware of time limitations.
  • Work with you to develop a claim strategy that maximizes your financial recovery.
  • Conduct a thorough evaluation of your loss, carefully researching, detailing and substantiating every aspect of your claim, including building damage, contents, business interruption, and extra expense claims.
  • Provide a complete Architectural and Engineering Building Damage Assessment Report, including analysis of necessary Code Upgrades needed for reconstruction.
  • Present and support an itemized claim package to your insurer.
  • Work as an advocate at all inspections and meetings with your insurance company.
  • Secure the best possible settlement, in the shortest possible time frame.
  • When necessary, provide expert testimony from our staff of licensed Architects, Engineers and Contractors.

Our professionals will be with you from the beginning to the end, personally assuring that all goes smoothly.
