9 Replies and 3434 Views Identify this  3434  9 Started by  suzukini Not claim related,but we are having the hardest time trying to figure out what the heck these metal clip-like pieces are for.  Anyone have a clue  They are spaced out randomly on the tile benches and raised walls outside a building here in Florida.  The clips do not move, are bolted from the top but also do not attach along the edge like it would seem.

0 Replies and 2281 Views Vinyl siding repair  2281  0 Started by  stormcrow I am seeing more companies repairing hail hits on vinyl siding. I understand that they patch in a matching or similar pattern and then computer match the colour and paint the patch.  I am curious on the long term, Will the patched hole stay in place and will the matched paint fade at the different rate the original siding. Five or ten years from now will the insured be left with a poka dot pattern on the side where the repairs where done.

So I'm hoping you are still willing to help me with information. Can anyone confirm if any state law restricts an insurance claims adjuster from 'moonlighting' with other non-insurance professions that interact with homeowners (ex. code of ethics or profession standards of practice violations) Also is there a central online resource that provides detailed information for accessing individual state statutory regulations specifically for ins...

3 Replies and 4167 Views What is an Adjuster good for Anymore?  4167  3 Started by  hollenmail I know this is long, but please read, at the end there is a twist and I hope that my experience will help you or someone else. Thank you for reading. Adjusters should be owed the right to share their experience's with 3rd party companies & carriers alike because we are the heart of the claims process. The worse the economy gets, the harder it becomes to be an adjuster and/or manage a 3rd party claims handling firm. As the adjusters fees go down, the demands go up. The carriers are hiring mor...

Ten years ago we had only one official Ladder Assist company and that was run by Pilot for Allstate Ins. but today we ha...
