My brother/friend/husband is a contractor, they’ll take care of itSo your brother/friend/husband is a contractor. That's great, but you first need to get the money to do the work. A contractor has no legal negotiating power with insurance carriers to insure you get the necessary funds. It wouldn't make sense to pay for your roofing, siding, gutters etc. when you're already paying your insurance company to cover those expenses. Let Matrix Public Adjusters get the indemnities you deserve and then you can have your brother/friend/husband do the work if you choose to do so.
I’ll just try it with my insurance first, but if that doesn’t work I’ll give you guys a call
No one in their right mind would go to court and not have a lawyer. If you file a claim on your property without hiring a public adjuster that's essentially what you're choosing to do. Insurance carriers are not in the business of paying what they're supposed to and will try to minimize or deny your claim completely. Once an insurance adjuster has denied a claim or paid as minimally as possible, they make it very hard to reopen the claim and pay you what they're supposed to. The process could take 5-10x longer than if you would have had Matrix Public Adjusters represent you in the first place. Make sure you have the proper representation when filing a claim on your property to insure you're treated fairly.
