Shower Pan Leaks
Show pan leaks are an issue few people know exists in their homes. A shower pan leak allows water to seep into the floor every time someone takes a shower. Often, you cannot see these with the naked eye. However, over the course of weeks or months, your home acquires several specific problems. Shower pan leaks often require structural repairs and mold remediation. Unfortunately, insurance companies frequently challenge how much is necessary for these projects and may try to limit the money they pay you to fix the problems. You need the professional public adjusters at Central Florida Property Claims. Working with a public adjuster on your side can make your Orlando, Tampa, Daytona, or The Villages insurance claim for shower pan leaks much more straightforward. We help you get the insurance payout you need with fewer hassles.
Common Problems with Shower Pan Leaks
Shower pan leaks are more common than most people realize. Often, it takes a home inspection or years of damage before you catch shower pan leaks. At that point, the damage is done to your home, and it needs many different repairs.
Repairs Involved in a Shower Pan Leak:
Wood rot replacement
Other water damage repair
Shower pan leaks happen for many reasons, including normal wear and tear. However, none of these are specific to something you did. Other causes of shower pan leaks include shower pan movement and poor drainage angles. Unfortunately, shower pan leaks are expensive to repair since they involve several professions. Insurance companies, therefore, try to minimize the payout on these claims. Having a skilled public adjuster on your side can make the process much easier.
Insurance Company Tactics for Shower Pan Leaks
Your insurance company wants to pay out as little as possible on your shower pan leak claim. However, they also want to keep you as a customer, so denying your claim entirely is not in their best interests. Instead, the process for your insurance claim may be designed to encourage you to drop the claim. Perhaps the most straightforward tactic for insurance companies is claiming that your policy does not cover the shower pan leak. In order to proceed with your claim, you must sort through the legalese in the policy to confirm your coverage. This task is often time-consuming and frustrating if you do it yourself. Your insurance company may also contest the value of what you’re claiming, whether it’s damaged items or the repair bill itself. As a result, your insurance company may undervalue both items and reduce your payout. Proving the value of repair work and items damaged requires lengthy research on your part. You may also face an insurance company that tries to claim the damage was not caused by a shower pan leak, and therefore it’s not covered by your policy. This tactic can be difficult to disprove without your own independent expert, whom you may need to pay out of pocket initially. While most insurance companies will not make a bad faith claim denial, you may find yours is, in which case you must refile. On the other hand, you may also find that your insurance company slows everything down to the minimum base possible under the law. In either case, the goal for the insurance company is you dropping the claim out of frustration.
