Public Adjuster Negotiates $20,000 Increase for Water and Roof Damage Claim in Tampa
+ $20,000 INCREASE
A summer storm caused interior water damage as well as roof damage to an auto body repair shop located in Tampa, Florida. The owner filed a claim with the insurance company and hired a roofer to complete a damage estimate.
According to the insured, the independent adjuster from the insurance company agreed there was damage to the roof, but denied there was any long-term water damage inside that needed to be addressed with the claim. He made a settlement offer of $15,000 to repair the roof.
Insurance Claim Consultants was hired to re-inspect the roof damage and water damage, as well as negotiate a settlement that would enable to the owners to restore the business to its pre-loss condition.
Our public adjuster used moisture mapping technology to document the extent of the water damage that had affected the offices and upstairs storage area inside the business. This pointed to all of the drywall inside of the office needing to be replaced and painted as well as the tile floors upstairs. The total estimate to repair the water damage inside of the shop was $16,000.
The insurance adjuster quickly agreed to the scope of loss for the interior damage we submitted and paid the full amount of our estimate – $16,000. Our public adjuster uncovered hard-to-find damage to the roof that originally went unnoticed by the roofer the insured hired as well as the independent adjuster. The cost to fully repair the roof was $19,000 – a $4,000 increase from what the insurance company offered.
