Flash flood warnings in Los Angeles County have become more common, but even before this, water damage was a real issue in the area. After all, water damage can come in many forms; burst pipes, slow leaks, sewer backups, and many other problems can cause flooding and water damage in the home. Homeowners insurance may be able to cover the damages, but it will rarely just pay the cost of repairs. This is where Alliance Public Adjusters can make the difference between a minuscule settlement and one that actually helps you repair your home.
As a city within Los Angeles County in California, El Monte has a population of more than 113,000 residents and is often known as the end of the Santa Fe trail. The community is situated between two rivers: the San Gabriel and the Rio Hondo. Its Mediterranean climate means that temperatures are fairly constant year-round.
Even with moderate temperatures, pipes can still burst. Corrosion can weaken a pipe wall or a joint; pipes that aren’t properly secured can rattle and weaken joints over time; sudden increases in pressure can cause pipes to rupture.
And while malfunctioning pipes may be the most obvious sources of water damage, any place that water can pool will gradually damage walls, ceilings, floors, and more.
Homeowners insurance will cover many of these issues, but the average homeowner doesn’t have the experience necessary to successfully navigate the claim and settlement process to get a fair settlement. That’s where having Alliance Public Adjusters on your side can make a big difference.
At Alliance Public Adjusters, we work for you to complete insurance paperwork, document damage, get professional estimates that will hold weight with insurance companies, and work as advocates in your settlement process. Many insurance owners believe that their claims agent is going to find a fair settlement between the homeowner and the insurance policy. In fact, they work for the insurance company, and their job is to pay out as few claims as possible.
Your best chance of getting a fair settlement is to have all of your documentation in order and to have an advocate on your side every step of the way.
When you contact Alliance Public Adjusters, we will meet you at your site, whether it’s a business or a resident. We will survey the damage, look over your policy information, and help you understand what the insurance company should be paying. We will fight for you until you receive a settlement that you are happy with. We receive no upfront fees; we only receive a small percentage of your claim settlement.
