Water damage claims
Good weather brings a smile to all our faces. However, the happiness can quickly disappear if you arrive home from holidays to find your home has been damaged by a water leak while you were away.
Running water will damage plasterboard, woodwork, electrical appliances and soft furnishings. No amount of drying out will save these items. Replacement is the only option. Even if it is “clean” water, the damp and humid conditions can quickly turn undamaged items ‘mouldy’ and this can be very difficult to treat. The best solution to avoid mould growth is prevention. Experts in flood damage will remove wet items and use dehumidifiers and air moving equipment to extract the damp conditions from the property to prevent mould growth.
Burst pipe insurance
Provided your home has not been left unoccupied for more than 30 days, and your sums insured are adequate your insurance policy should cover the full cost of repairs. If your home is deemed un-inhabitable, your policy will cover the cost of alternative accommodation.

This should be agreed with your Insurer/Loss Adjuster in advance.
Our team of professional loss assessors can quickly prepare a full written inventory of the damage. This forms the basis of the claim document for pricing and negotiation with your Insurer/Loss Adjuster.
