It has reached that point in the year where time is running short to complete repairs from last summer’s storm damage. Before you panic that you may not meet the deadline for your insurance claim, there are a few important factors to consider.
INSURANCE CLAIM STIPULATIONS
Have you fully read the conditions of your insurance claim? If not, now’s the time to refresh your memory. Your insurance company will have set a time limit for completion of work. In some cases, you will have no more than a year from making the claim to completely sign off on the repairs. Even if you are given up to two years, you will want to have the work carried out before the next summer storms roll around.
LATE STORM DAMAGE
If the storms that caused the damage occurred towards the end of the summer, time is of the essence when it comes to carrying out repairs. You have a reduced window of opportunity on either side of the winter months where your contractor can carry out the work. It is absolutely essential you deal with a company that can deliver within a restricted time frame when the odds are stacked against you.
To ensure your repairs are carried out professionally and on time, it is important to work with a contractor who delivers. If you are already working with a contractor who has repeatedly extended the timeline or broken promises, you should seek a second opinion. Failing to complete repairs from the previous year’s storms comes with significant costs. From missing the insurance deadline, to further damage, to already compromised structures, you may end up with a hefty bill to pay.
