Water Damage can cause extensive damage to your home or business. Our goal is to place you back to pre-loss condition as quickly as possible.
The first step is to identify the source of the leak, to stop the flow of water into the home and minimize the damage. In a situation in which a large amount of water escaped into the home, you will need the services of an experienced water mitigation company. The mitigation company will remove the excess water and dry the home to prevent further damage. Mold can occur if the home is not properly dried.
Once the water is removed and the home is dry, the full damage to the home and contents can be assessed.

Roofers and Contractors typically like to canvas neighborhoods after a storm or fire has occurred. They might require you to sign a contract, (also known as an Assignment of Benefits, or AOB) in order to inspect your roof and submit a claim. Once you have signed the AOB, you might be giving away rights to your claim to that specific roofing company or contractor. We do not recommend you sign an AOB to handle your claim. Only a licensed Public Adjuster or attorney can legally represent you. Once you receive the funds from your claim you are free to choose the contractor of your choice to complete the repairs. However, if you sign an AOB, you lose the freedom to choose and will be required to use that specific company to do the work on your property.
