Flames are not the only source of damage when a fire strikes your home. Smoke, soot, and water from the fire-fighting efforts, are all often causes of additional damage in a fire loss.

All items in your home during a fire should be carefully evaluated to see if they have sustained damage. Those items that have escaped the flames may incur damage from smoke and water; if so, they should certainly be included in your itemized Contents/Personal Property Claim. The public adjusting team at Goodman-Gable-Gould/Adjusters International knows how to document and categorize all of your losses.

Our public adjusters help you get what you’re entitled to by:

  • Homeowners Insurance Claim Residential Fire Damage Adjusters Internationalevaluating your insurance policy to establish the best possible strategy for presenting your claim to the carrier;
  • valuing, documenting and substantiating every detail;
  • negotiating on your behalf with your insurance company;
  • keeping you informed every step of the way; and
  • ultimately settling the claim for the maximum amount and with less hassle for you.

Public adjusters work exclusively for you – the policyholder – never for the insurance company.

Who have we helped?

Hiring [you] to represent us was one of the smartest decisions we made following the loss of our home. …They made sure our claim was filed on time, the cost estimates were accurate, and that we received the maximum insurance proceeds we were entitled to based upon our policy coverage….

During the days, weeks and months that followed our fire, my wife and I were able to focus on getting our life back in order, replacing our personal items, going back to work, and finding temporary housing for our family while the house was being restored and rebuilt. Because of [you], we had time to focus on the really important things in life, and [you] handled each and every detail of the insurance claim and related issues.
