No pagues ese techo?!
Assuming the policy provides coverage for the loss, the second question I'm usually asked is "how much is my claim worth?" Once you report a claim to your insurance company, the insurance company will send an adjuster to determine how much the insurance company will pay. It is important to remember that this adjuster works for the insurance company, not for you. It's always a good idea to get at least one, if not several, quotes from contractors who are willing to do repairs to your home. Always ask for identification from contractors and look up their license number. After natural disasters, many contractors come to Florida looking for work. You want to make sure you are getting quotes from someone who will actually do these repairs for the price they quoted.
