Free Insurance Repair Estimates When Working With Our Loss Adjusting Clients

When policyholder's properties suffer from an insured event such as a fire or flood, many insurance companies are now asking the policyholder to obtain building repair estimates on their behalf. One of the main problems most people find is knowing a building contractor who is capable of preparing a reinstatement schedule, has the funds to carry out the work, has all the trades in place required and is fully insured.

At ICN we ensure all of the above is in place and by using our services we can offer you a single point of contact for the management, compliance, scoping, contractor validation, completion certificates and complaint procedures that most claims entail offering you complete peace of mind that the works will be carried out expediently and to your satisfaction.

Many local builders may offer a fantastic service for general building work, but are they experienced enough to take on such a specialised task? Can you be sure that a local builder would have the knowledge to assess the damage in full? If the repair costs were under-estimated, who would cover the difference?

Your insurer may award the building repair contract to a company who have submitted the lowest repair quote, without the knowledge of the full extent of the damage. Why take the risk with your property when we can provide free insurance repair quotes based on the actual repair costs?

Our fully vetted, qualified and approved fire and flood insurance repair specialists working along side our independently appointed RIC's surveyors deal with various types of reinstatement works on a daily basis. They know what to look for and how to identify secondary damage which may not be immediately visible to the untrained eye, such as smoke and deep water damage. This ensures that your insurer will be informed of the full extent of any damage - in turn your settlement should reflect the real cost of restoring your property back to its pre-loss condition and when completed will carry a 12 month guarantee.

As specialist fire and flood restoration specialists, we are here to assist through the whole property reinstatement process whilst ensuring you are fully compensated by your insurer. This is why we work with a group of dedicated independent loss adjusters and RIC's surveyors who are dedicated to making sure that you receive your full entitlement. This, in turn, ensures all repair work can be completed to the highest standards.

Escape of Water (Leaks)

Initial water damage is called primary damage and the effects are usually instantly identifiable. What is harder to see is the secondary damage as the moisture changes from liquid to vapour and travels throughout the building, causing secondary damage. It then re-forms in condensation to be absorbed by porous materials, creating damage that could pop up in several years’ time.

Primary damage can be identified almost immediately but as water spreads behind hidden areas, secondary damage may not be as easy to find. If left untreated, secondary damage can have a devastating effect at a later stage.

Once an escape of water begins to cause damage it is essential that the source is identified then cut off. Damage from water is progressive - as long as wet conditions exist, they will result in more water being absorbed into areas of your property.
