Noble Public Adjusting Group would like to share information on our blog today that Florida homeowners need to know about foundation cracks. You might think a small crack in your home’s foundation is no big deal, but the truth is a foundation crack can spell big trouble. As your Florida home ages, the foundation can begin to crack and become less stable. Below we have covered the warning signs of a cracked foundation and what damage this can cause to your Florida home. Noble wants you to rest assured that we can file your insurance claim in Florida if foundation cracks have caused considerable damage to your home.
It is not uncommon for small cracks to develop in the foundation of your Florida home as it ages. If a crack is deep enough it can result in crumbling of the concrete foundation. Typically, if the cracks have developed at a 45-degree angle and are thicker than a hairline fracture, the foundation may be in danger. One big warning sign is that damaged foundations can cause the doors and windows of your Florida home to stick or remain shut due to the structural integrity of your house being compromised.
If you know or suspect that the foundation of your Florida home is cracked, call Noble Public Adjusting Group. We will visit your Florida home and do a free verbal inspection. During this free inspection, we will look carefully at your foundation to see if it has any cracks. If you have already noticed cracks, or you suspect cracks due to things like the doors in your home not closing properly, or sticking when they are shut, you can point the cracks out to our professional who is handling the free inspection of your Florida home.
If you have damage to your home that is the result of a cracked foundation and you need to file an insurance claim, we can do that for you. In fact, hiring a Florida public adjuster like Noble to file your insurance claim is one of the smartest decisions you might ever make. A recent study shows that by using a public adjuster, policyholders receive on average 747% more of an insurance settlement than if they had handled the claim themselves. Besides that, you should always have someone on your side when dealing with big corporate insurance. They don’t like paying claims, and your insurance company may very well try to find a way to not pay your claim for damages caused by a cracked foundation.
Noble’s home office is in Panama City Beach, but we can handle an insurance claim anywhere in Florida. We also have offices in Texas and Georgia. Call us today and let’s talk about the foundation of your Florida home, or for any other questions or concerns, you may have. We love hearing from our blog readers!
