Treat Your Insurance Claim Like a Crime Scene

One of the most unfortunate situations we run across in our industry is when a homeowner has experienced a water damage claim (burst pipe, failed water supply line, water heater failure, etc.) and by the time they call Noble Public Adjusting Group at (850) 249-MY-PA to come out to their home, all the damaged areas are gone—removed and discarded by the water mitigation company that was called to help dry out the property.

This could result in the denial of your legitimate claim—simply because the mitigation company didn’t handle the situation properly. Protect yourself and your claim—just like it was a crime scene. Preserving and documenting the damage is vital in order to protect your financial interest in your water damage claim.

Contacting Noble Public Adjusting Group before a mitigation company will eliminate the need for you to photograph and make notes, as we do this for you.  However, if you insist on documenting the damage yourself, before you allow anyone to touch anything in your home, make sure you photograph all the areas that were damaged by water, including:

  • Drywall
  • Baseboards
  • Cabinetry (kitchen cabinets, bathroom vanities, laundry room cabinets, garage cabinets, etc.)
  • Furniture
  • Flooring (carpet, laminate, hardwood, or carpet)
  • Rugs
  • Any Personal Property (contents of your home) that got wet

Many people handle their own insurance claims and end up with a fairly reasonable settlement on their own. However, a larger number of people who handle their own water damage claims do not.  Noble Public Adjusting Group specializes in water loss claims, and the average amount we negotiate for our clients is more than 600% more than what they were offered by the insurance company.  The numbers don’t lie.

You have a legal right to receive a free consultation from Noble Public Adjusting Group. Simply call (850) 249-MY-PA or visit our website at to begin receiving a fair settlement for your property damage.
