Leaking pipe damage is a common type of claim seen in the insurance claims industry. As a home or business owner, you may have hundreds, even thousands of feet of pipe carrying water from one room to the next consisting of many separate pieces linked together. Whether your structure is old or new, you need to keep the inspection of water lines and pipes on your checklist of regular home maintenance.

Understanding Plumbing Leak Claims

More common are the leaks under the kitchen sink and behind the wall in the bathroom. If you have a basement, regularly check the area of the floor just under the bathtub or bathroom sink for any discoloration. Have a plumber stop out for yearly or twice yearly maintenance and remove the faucets and inspect for cracked seals or slow drips. A plumber can use a small lighted camera to view the dark areas inside the wall behind your tub or sink and may be able to spare you some costly future repairs from leaking pipe damage.

Pipe leaks under the slab foundation of a home are particularly costly to repair. Slab leaks can cause an area of earth to hollow out under your home and make your foundation much less secure. A home can list to one side, ever so slightly, but just enough to cause new leaks around the roof and foundation of the home. As it progresses, wall cracks or even broken windows will occur. At this point there is a very costly claim in the making and likely to be denied by your insurance carrier because it was not a sudden or catastrophic leak. A public adjuster can help you wade through the claim process of leaking pipe damage and will ensure that you are fairly compensated for any portion of the claim that is covered.

Florida’s Best Public Adjusters ARE the best. Our adjuster came to the house a few times to scope out the damage from a water leak and he spent quite a bit of time measuring the affected areas. The resulting claim amount was amazing. If we had handled the insurance company ourselves we would have come up way short. We highly recommend and trust Florida’s Best. Thanks Julian!

Stephen got my denial reversed….had all to do with his reputation, and not the “luck of the Irish” on this St. Patrick's day! Him and his team are very professional, responsive and caring during the entire ordeal. If they are not on your team, you have chosen poorly.
