Will Your Insurer Offer Their Undivided Attention to Assist with Your Burst Pipe or Escape of Water Claims?

Many policyholders find that insurers are not very forthcoming in providing their full range of assistance capabilities at the very time you need them to. If this sounds familiar, or you need to submit a new burst pipe insurance claim, then it may be time to ask for help from our experts.

For example, you may be asked to obtain repair quotes but suddenly realise that many builders will not offer a free estimate if it is for your insurer. As a client of ours, we can arrange quotes for you and recommend suitable building contractors.

Millions of Pounds Worth of Damage to Homes and Businesses Every Year

Escape of water claims amount to several millions of pounds worth of damage every year in the UK. Waiting for insurance loss adjusters to assess their clients losses can sometimes be painstakingly slow.

As mentioned before, it is now common practice for the policyholder to obtain repair estimates directly from building contractors. Many policyholders then find that many builders will simply refuse to provide you a quote because most likely, they will not be appointed by your insurer to carry out any repairs. Think about it, every time an insurer asks the policyholder to provide 2 or 3 building repair quotes, only one of them will not be appointed and the others would have wasted their time.

Public Loss Adjusters consider this to be fundamentally wrong. By taking advantage of our services, we can arrange for building repair quotes as part of our service. We can also negotiate all other aspects of your burst pipe insurance claim with your insurer. This ensures that you receive the exact settlement to which you are entitled.

With businesses, they are often forced to close, counting their losses. We can also manage the Business Interruption aspect of your claim as well. We understand that your claim needs to be dealt with as swiftly as possible with the upmost urgency.

With our Independent Loss Adjusters managing your burst pipe insurance claim this can even help your insurer in a round about way. Remember the longer your claim goes on the more it may cost your insurer as well. By dealing with your claim in a fast and efficient way will help all relative parties come to a satisfactory outcome.

The Best Tips To Prevent Burst Pipes in Freezing Weather

What do Public Loss Adjusters recommend to prevent an escape of water during cold spells?

We suggest the following when temperatures drop below 2 Degrees Celsius:

  • Ensure that your water tank has protection with a insulation jacket. This will help save on energy costs in the long term.
  • Do not place loft insulation below the water tank. This will prevent heat reaching the rooms below!
  • With thinner piping you should use thicker insulation. A 15mm or ½ pipe will need insulation that is between 25mm – 28mm thick. 1inch pipes will need insulation that is at least 19mm thick.
  • It is always worth paying more for good quality insulation to protect your property.
  • Pipes outside your property which are exposed should have insulation especially in unheated outhouses.
  • If your pipes are not in use during the winter it is always better to drain them.
