As the most common natural disaster in Texas, flooding has put all parts of the state, including cities like Granbury, TX, at risk. But, thankfully, we at Texas Classic Insurance offer the financial protection you need when such a disaster occurs.
Let’s say you already have flood insurance coverage with Texas Classic Insurance. Your house gets flooded, and the flooding causes a great deal of damage to several areas of your property, including the wiring, the septic system, and some of your furniture. What will you do?
Besides reducing the water flow as much as possible and curbing as much damage as you can, you’ll have to file a flood insurance claim. Although dealing with flooding can be very stressful and devastating, your insurance company will know what to do once you get in touch with them.
Here’s how to file to flood insurance claim:
- Contact your insurer–in this case, Texas Classic Insurance–and report your loss. You can expect your adjuster to get in touch with you between 24 and 48 hours after reporting your claim. Be prepared to provide information such as the name of your insurance company, your phone number, your policy number, and the name of your mortgage company (if applicable).
- Get ready for the inspection. After making sure that re-entering the building is safe enough, take videos and photos of the damaged property. This will count as evidence, which your adjuster will need in order to come up with your repair estimate.
- Work with your adjuster. When they arrive, they should present their ID to you, including their driver’s license and company ID or FCN card. Your adjuster should discuss the NFIP flood claims process, what an advance payment payment is and how you can obtain one, your policy coverage, a rundown of the claims process, and more.
- Document your damage. Your adjuster will help you with this part as well. They’ll also work with you to prepare and submit your repair estimate. If everything is done correctly, you can expect to receive a flood payment that corresponds to your flood loss.
