If a home is damaged by water damage, it’s essential to talk to the insurance adjuster. The adjuster will help you get your home repaired and possibly replaced if necessary. They can also help with other things like replacing your belongings or paying the rent while the repairs are being made.
At Link Public Adjusting Group, we know how harmful water damage can be. As a result of this lasting damage to a home or business, water damage insurance claims remain one of the most significant sources of financial expenditure for an insurance company.
If you’re struggling with a new claim, it may be time to call us.

What Info Does an Adjuster Need for Water Damage
The insurance adjuster is going to need the following information in most cases.
- Address of the property where the water damage occurred.
- Date and time when you discovered your water damage.
- If applicable, how you discovered a problem with your property’s foundation or walls. If it was just a drip here or there, no additional information is needed; if there are several drips in different areas throughout your home—or if they’re coming from multiple sources—then an inspector may be required by law before any repairs can be made!
What is the Timeline?
There are several reasons to talk to your insurance adjuster as soon as possible after the water damage. First, getting the correct information is easier when you’re still on the scene. This can help ensure everything is explained accurately and clearly, which will help prevent confusion later on.
Second, getting things right up front allows you to document everything accurately. Hence, there is less chance of having incorrect information in writing or on record somewhere later down the line (for example: if someone else writes down wrong information).
Thirdly and most importantly: it’s vital not only because they’ll want their money back but also because they want their clients’ business back!
As with any insurance claim—whether storm or house fire—it takes time for all parties involved (you included) to begin processing claims from an event such as this one.”
What Happens When You Settle
When you settle with an insurance adjuster, they may ask for some money upfront. This is because they want to be sure that you won’t claim against them later. If you don’t pay them in full, they can sue your home or property and take it from you.
If the insurance company denies your claim, there are ways to get around this problem:
- Get a mediator involved so that both parties can come to an agreement together
- Contact an attorney with experience representing homeowners’ associations (HOAs) in cases like yours- these attorneys know how to negotiate settlements between HOAs and members affected by a disaster such as flooding or fire damage.
What If You Aren’t Happy with the Settlement?
If you’re not happy with the settlement offer, several options are available. First and foremost, it’s important to negotiate with your insurance company as soon as possible. They may be willing to settle for less if they know that you will keep paying the premiums for a certain period of time.
You can also appeal the decision if it’s not what you were hoping for—and perhaps even file a lawsuit against them if necessary! This can be an expensive process in itself; however, it’s worth it because there is no guarantee that someone else won’t get hurt by this water damage incident down the road (or worse).
Hire a Professional Adjuster
The best way to deal with the insurance adjuster is to hire them. They will be able to help you get your home back in order and make sure that you are protected financially.
If you don’t have time or energy to deal with the insurance adjuster yourself, it may be worth hiring someone who does this type of work regularly so that they can guide you through each step of the process until everything goes smoothly at the end of all this chaos!
