Lynbrook, NY (PRWEB) May 03, 2013
Last year was a tough one for homeowners all over the country as many faced hardships and their homes were badly damaged. This was especially true in the New York City area in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. 411Claims.com has a group of seasoned public adjusters that can represent homeowners before and after emergencies like Hurricane Sandy and offers tips to help them claim the full amount of money their insurance contract guarantees.
For the past several years, towns and communities throughout the country have been devastated by destructive tornadoes, floods and fires. In 2012, the East Coast saw the devastating effects of Hurricane Sandy, which hit in late October and affected 24 states. Hurricane Sandy was the second-costliest hurricane in U.S. history with an estimated $71 billion worth of damage along the entire eastern seaboard.
Homeowners can protect themselves in the aftermath of another devastating event with the help of 411Claims.com. 411Claims has tips for filing a claim following the damage of residential property.
411Claims.com suggests taking plenty of pictures that clearly show the damage and to make several photocopies to give away. They do tell homeowners to hold on to the original documentation (including photos and invoices) and never give away any part of the claim.
The earlier a homeowner finds out if they need help from 411Claims.com, the easier it is for them to get the money owed the first time. They suggest that homeowners find out if they need help early, but not to rush to settle the claim. Damages overlooked in early inspection may become apparent later. Repairs shouldn’t be rushed either. It will be smart to complete only the required repairs and wait with the rest until the settlement of the claim.
411Claims.com also suggests that homeowners always hire their own contractors and service providers. Do not pay anyone any money upfront. Deductibles will be subtracted from the settlement totals. They warn to never sign a release which calls for the contractor to be satisfied with the amount of the insurance settlement. Always get a written, detailed estimate from a contractor with the scope of the work and the amount they are going to charge. 411Claims.com also urges homeowners to check the records and referrals of the company they hire.
