At First Call Claim we provide insurance claim assistance and loss assessments for houses that have been damaged in a fire.
A house fire can result in serious structural and superficial damage. The superficial damage may be easy to see but the structural damage is usually harder to detect. In addition to the flames, smoke and soot can spread throughout the house and cause damage in places the fire did not even reach. This soot is particularly dangerous and when it breaks down it becomes corrosive and will result in further damage down the line. Damage may also be caused by the water used to put the fire out.
First Call Claim has decades of experience with fire insurance claims and have successfully negotiated compensation for house fires, chimney fires, kitchen fires, protein, fires, and electrical fires. Our expert team will effectively and accurately assess the damage caused by the fire and present our findings to your insurance company on your behalf.
