Did you know that 1 in 20 Homes file a claim each year? Homeowners insurance is advantageous, protecting you and your assets. What process would I need to follow in the event that I need to make a claim? Carolina Industrial will be there to walk you through the claim from start to finish.
1. Get Documentation
Proper documentation would include a description of the damages, and any photographs you may have. If your home was burglarized, or vandalized, you will want to first file a Police Report. Police Reports are not required, but they do help speed along the process. Take steps to protect your affected property from additional damage.
2. Contact Carolina Industrial
3. Prepare for the Adjuster
Occasionally, an adjuster will need to come out to assess the damage. The adjuster will do a detailed inspection, and will ask for a statement from the policyholder.
4. Shop Around For Estimates
Get estimates from roofers, repairmen, and contractors. This will give you leverage when the time comes to receive the payout.
5. Claim Payment
Your claim will be processed, and repairs can begin on your home.
