Re: recent flooding repairs
You need someone knowledgeable with brick and wall repair as you describe to talk with you and your adjuster together. I can tell you it's going to cost you a whole lot more than $9 per foot to get it repaired correctly. You probably won't get full replacement value - insurance rarely ever does - but they will work with you to get your home repaired to the best that your coverage allows.
I've done a fair amount of flood work, and each time I had to educate the adjuster as to exactly how much work was involved to restore the property. We never got full replacement value, but we did get the reimbursement up to at least cover necessities.
I suffer from CDO ... Its like OCD, but in alphabetical order, LIKE IT SHOULD BE!!!
