Unexpected water damage calls for quick action, clean-up, and measures to control and restore as much damage as possible. In the rush, our team of public adjusters can provide the experience, resources, and time to help you make informed decisions that will help ensure that this work is coordinated with your insurance claim to help get your business what it needs to recover.
The effects of water damage are not only detrimental to your commercial property, but also to the health of your employees and any other occupants. It must be documented and dealt with immediately and properly.
Sudden water damage can come from storms and floods or even a random pipe bursting. Within moments, the ceilings, walls, and floors of your building can be damaged or destroyed. Also, the moisture from water damage can lead to mold growth, making your place of business unsafe for any occupants. The immediate need to clean up and control as much damage as possible may delay you in the beginning, but organizing a plan for the handling of your water damage claim will be vital to the recovery of your business.
Our team of public adjusters will work on your behalf and negotiate with your insurance company for a maximum claim recovery. As your trusted advisors, we are fluent with insurance policy terms and conditions. Our adjusters will evaluate and document your property’s water damage in full detail to make sure you receive the optimum amount to get back to business. With offices in Portland, Albany, Utica, Syracuse, Rochester, Buffalo, and Scranton, our public insurance adjusters expertly handle Maine, Pennsylvania, and New York water damage commercial insurance claims.
Prior to [your] involvement, my insurance company omitted over half the damage in their estimate. During the whole process, from evaluating the damage to getting the fair market costs of labor and materials, to the final settlement, [your representative] displayed a real understanding, knowledge and professionalism. He truly represented the client against a difficult insurance representative for which I am grateful
Months after the storm passed, the County was still faced with tremendous burdens related to the insurance coverage issues and FEMA and MEMA eligibility issues. Jackson County hired Adjusters International to provide professional services for disaster assistance, remediation, restoration and recovery efforts....Their expertise with governmental regulations, the complex FEMA process and insurance adjustments resulted in our successful claim for over $2 million in additional FEMA Public Assistance funding specifically; in our successful negotiations with our insurance carrier; and in numerous other increases in the values FEMA and MEMA initially designated for County projects. Jackson County will always be mindful of the help we received from Adjusters International when we needed it most.

In the spring of 2013, the Village of Watkins Glen and Schuyler County suffered a devastating fire to its new, 15,000-square-foot Shared Services Building. This services facility was the headquarters or central location of key departments for the county’s and village’s operations. The Adjusters International Basloe, Levin & Cuccaro public adjusting team was chosen to manage the county’s and village’s property damage insurance claims while ensuring that public services continued unhindered.
