HOW DO PUBLIC ADJUSTERS ASSESS PROPERTY LOSS VALUE

When it comes to property restoration from damage or total loss, being a Public Adjuster with knowledge of construction trade is key to a successful business and/or career. From a foundational understanding of building code, true construction / contractor labor costs, to pricing of materials involved in reconstructing a damaged structure, and other variables–an understanding of construction will help your client obtain the true value of a claim.

Hiring a professional public claims adjuster has many benefits for the property owner:

  1. The property owner will simply get more out of their claim. Public Adjusters are hired to ensure a property owner gets as much money as possible to get them back on their feet. At times a talented claims adjuster with the right professional knowledge can double what a homeowner could obtain in the claim should they go it alone. Additionally this will ensure the property is repaired and completed to 100% satisfaction. 

NOTE: Reports from the Florida OPPAGA shows that homeowners statistically get more on their settlement when using a Public Adjuster then when not.

As a Public Adjuster, understanding building material and labor costs will help your client get back on their feet.

  1. A homeowner will gain a professional advocate on their side. With a certified Public Adjuster working with the insured they will have someone who is consistently pushing for the home owner. Public Adjusters are extremely knowledgeable in their craft and in understanding all the legal clauses an insurance company uses to keep money in their pockets.
  2. Never any loose ends or paperwork to sort through. A Public Adjuster is held to a high standard. This means they can’t bend many rules, are fingerprinted, bonded, and well educated. They have a deep rooted understanding of construction and skilled trades- for example: understanding how drywall rots from various leaks and even how plumbing works. A claims adjuster’s goal is to ensure that the owner is fully compensated for any damaged property. Most construction components that might be glanced over like behind the wall insulation or even sheets rock repair won’t go unnoticed.
