Residential bathroom leak claims

Water damage originating in bathrooms is one of the costliest damages affecting homeowners today. With a multitude of plumbing components present inside a bathroom, it is almost just a matter of time before an issue will arise affecting a home. We find that water travels in the path of least resistance. As a result, a bathroom leak will channel and travel into: closets, bedrooms, hallways, kitchens and even other bathrooms that may be “back to back” sharing the same wall. The effects of a residential water damage caused by a bathroom leak can leave homeowners and other property owners with the burden of facing extremely difficult and complex decisions.

Issues related to property damage of items such as bathroom cabinetry, walls & drywall, tile flooring & tile base, insulation, cabinets, and other interior finishes are just some of the many concerns one should have when dealing with a bathroom leak. Properly identifying and investigation other potential issues such as leak detection, replacement of plumbing systems, water extraction, dehumidification, structural drying and restoration & repairs may create larger obstacles to the simple apparent cosmetic damage to finishes that an insurance company’s adjuster may just consider. Navigating and understanding the process of a bathroom leak insurance claim will be overwhelming, the assistance of an experience and qualified public adjuster can prove to be essential to the policyholder.
