Do I have to use the contractor my insurance agent recommends?

Insurance companies often make referrals to contractors for repair and restoration work – and we are often recommended. But your coverage is not contingent upon using one of the contractors recommended. You can choose the contractor with whom you wish to work. This is true for water recovery, storm damage, as well as roof repairs and replacements.

We are! Our West Virginia number is #WV037234.

Is it normal to be so stressed out?

Losing a home and/or belongings to a flood IS very stressful. It is important to know that the feelings of loss and stress after a flood are second only to those caused by the death of a loved one. Give yourself time and permission to grieve.
