 What is an insurance claim appraisal?

An insurance claim appraisal allows you to remove an uncooperative insurance company from the conversation and bring in third-parties to settle the cost to repair your property.

Claim appraisals are extremely effective against insurers who are not cooperating. Few contractors, and even fewer property owners, know that appraisal is an option built into most insurance policies to settle disagreements.

Whereas a typical real estate appraisal determines the value of your property from top to bottom, only the amount of loss suffered from the claim event is tallied during an insurance appraisal.
