Make Sure Your Property Stays Protected After Making Repairs

Not all natural disasters result in the complete destruction of structures on a property. Damage caused by high winds, hail, fire or water may be minimal and only require simple repairs to a structure. Oftentimes, these repairs are covered by insurance and may not incur any out-of-pocket expenses.

Unfortunately, inadequate repairs made to structures in Texas as well as improvements made without a permit can result in a loss of homeowner's insurance coverage and the possible denial of a future claim. You need someone on your side to review your policy to make sure you are covered. You need to speak to me, attorney Jessica Taylor at The Law Office of Jessica Taylor, PLLC.

Understanding How Improvements And Repairs Affect Your Coverage

Whether you are making improvements to your property to increase the value of your home or you are getting repairs done after a natural disaster, there are a number of ways in which the work you have done could cause you to lose coverage:

  • Failing to obtain a permit
  • Failing to hire a licensed contractor or expert
  • Doing repairs yourself
  • Not recovering enough from insurance for repairs

If done incorrectly, repairs and improvements can also cost you future coverage and can also create major problems when it comes time to sell your home.

Let Me Help You Protect Your Home

I, attorney Jessica Taylor, have worked in the field of insurance law for nearly 20 years. I know how insurance companies operate and how to break down the complex language used in policies into easy-to-understand terms.

Before you make repairs or improvements to your home, let me review your policy to determine how your coverage will be affected. I can also point out any gaps in your policy that may have been the result of insurance agent negligence, as well as point out when a claim could raise — or lower — your insurance premiums.
