Public adjusters are professionals that can be hired by policyholders, to work on their behalf, anytime they feel that the claim offered by their insurer is not correct. They are experienced in getting the most out of a policy`s coverage, and sometimes they can add a great value.
Making an insurance claim is a complicated process. Your insurance company will send its own adjuster who will inspect the damage and determine the price that you will get. In case of a roof replacement, the price is often negotiated and, since some people are not masters of this art, they may end up with a sum of money that does not compensate properly the damage. A public adjuster knows where to look, how to dig behind roof damages and leaks, gathering those evidence that company adjusters may overlook more or less intentionally.
There is also a downside: you must pay the public adjuster with a percent of the claim total; in some cases, this percent may be too much.
Therefore, you do not need a public adjuster for your roof replacement, but you may just need him, if the compensation you get from your insurer is not right and also if you are still going to gain more from hiring him even after you pay him.
