New Life Builders LLC has experience dealing with many of the different insurance companies which cover the homes and businesses of South Alabama. Our experience has shown that there are a number of different factors which affect making a successful claim from natural disaster damage. For example, not all flooding is treated the same by all insurance companies. Many will cover costs related to flooding caused by a broken pipe in the infrastructure of a building, but will not assist when the flooding is caused by a natural disaster. For people in flood-prone areas, there is usually a special additional policy available which you can opt to buy.
Furthermore, your insurance company probably covers wind related damage (hurricanes) but not the water damage that may come along with it. Depending on the area you are in, you may be eligible to receive “beach and windstorm” insurance. It is important to know exactly how your insurance company defines water damage and wind damage because many disputes have been made over claims due to these misinterpreted definitions.
In essence, the best thing to do is to check your own insurance policy to see what is covered and if you have the option to buy further coverage. New Life Builders can help you make the claim to your provider and we can also point out important factors to consider in the documentation process.
Water damage can be caused by a lot of reasons, A flood, broken pipe, and more. These issues can grow and cause major damage to your property if left for too long. When these issues arise call New Life Builders to restore your home back to the way it was.
This really depends on the extent of the damage. For instance, if your basement has been flooded then it will take longer if the water has to be pumped because the basement lacks a drainage system.
Once the water is removed then the real work begins. Wet baseboards and door casings will have to be removed as the water will have saturated them with moisture. Holes will have to be bored into walls and ceiling cavities to begin the drying process, and wet or contaminated insulation will have to be removed. Dehumidifiers and air movers are then used to get rid of the excess moisture. This whole process can take anywhere from a few days to several weeks depending on the extent of the damage and how quickly a water damage team was called in to fix the problem.
The importance of having a quick response lies in what is called “secondary water damage”. Secondary water damage results from the excess moisture in the air which will saturate its surroundings. Drywall will sag or buckle, ceiling tiles will lose their shape, and floors boards will become removed from their base. But the real issue is the possibility of mould. If your Fairhope property is not thoroughly dried then the interior of your walls, ceilings, and floors can become contaminated and produce mold, which will eventually make you any everyone on the premises very sick.
The professional team at New Life Builders can both remove the water and restore your Fairhope property as quickly as possible.
