If you're not satisfied with an insurance company's inspection for property damage, talk to an experienced public appraiser for a second opinion. Public appraisers have additional experience in analyzing insurance policies and inspecting property damage with the goal and perspective of truly obtaining a fair and adequate claim solution, so that policyholders can fully restore or repair damaged property. Dealing with the insurance adjuster can be easier if you have a detailed inventory, keep track of your meetings with the adjuster, and understand the limits of your policy.

Public insurance appraisers work independently and are generally compensated with a percentage of their payment. Your public appraiser will guide you through every step of the process, so you don't get left in the dark with your insurance claim.
