If you’re claiming for water damage to your home, finding professional insurance repair builders can be a difficult task. However, it’s important not to rush and just choose any builder to get a quote for your repairs. As most tradesmen are not trained in insurance, they aren’t usually interested in quoting for insurance repairs. This is why many of them don’t turn up to look at the job. Or if they do come out, they never get back to you with a quote.
IC Assist however are different! We won’t waste your time, we will turn up and we will forward a comprehensive quote direct to your insurer. Not only that, but we also manage your entire claim at no cost.
FREE Claims Management Service – a unique service not offered by most other builders.
We take away all the stress of claiming for damage to your home, by managing everything on your behalf. All at no cost to you or insurance company! We will protect your interests and make sure your insurer deals with your claims fairly. Initially our Claims Manager will carry out a survey of your property. During this time, he will document the damaged areas and discuss everything with you in detail. He will then forward a list of recommended repairs to your insurer for their approval.
At this point, it is likely that your insurer will send a Loss Adjuster out to inspect the damage. But don’t worry, our Claims Manager will represent you during the meeting to ensure their settlement is in line with your policy cover. Once your insurer authorises us to proceed, we will then instruct our contractors to carry out the reinstatement work. Our claims manager will then manage all works through to completion. There is no charge for managing your claim, providing we carry out all the work authorised by your insurer. (Any policy excess however, will still apply).
Our wide range of building services caters for all types of property damage claims.
Most insurance claims require several skilled tradesmen to professionally restore a property. That’s why we have a carefully selected team of; plasterers, decorators, plumbers, tilers, electricians, carpenters and flooring fitters. This allows us to provide a complete building repair service to restore any type of damage to your home.
If you’re claiming for damage caused by a leak or burst pipe our water damage restoration and drying service takes care of everything. From repairs to a damaged ceilings, walls, flooring or joists, to a complete kitchen, bathroom or property refurbishment. If your property has significant damage caused by the recent flooding, we can also remove all the burden that comes with dealing with a flood damage clean up and restoration.
Depending on the nature of your claim, we can also mitigate the extent of the repairs by installing our drying equipment immediately. This not only prevents mold growth and damage to the fabric of the building, but also allows the renovation work to start sooner.
We also provide an Asbestos sampling, testing and removal service for claims involving damaged Artex ceilings and Marley tiles (usually found under floor coverings).

You get professional assistance.
Your insurer has someone representing them and you should to – especially following an escape of water. Why? As most insurance companies send out Loss Adjusters or validation companies to act on their behalf. Their main purpose is to settle for the lowest possible amount and usually they are inexperienced and overworked. This means they rush and don’t scope the repairs correctly, which leads to an insufficient settlement offer. We come across this all the time. In fact, this is what makes our job so rewarding. We love having the knowledge and experience to be able to challenge their offers and do what is best for our customers!
As insurance repair builders, we pride ourselves on providing a service that is so unique to other building companies. What makes IC Assist so different? Well, we put a great deal of time and effort into ensuring our customers get a fair settlement, following damage to their home. Firstly, we meet the Loss Adjuster/claims validator at the property to discuss the reinstatement work required. Then following their visit, we request a copy of their scope of works for us to review. This is vital as, despite seeing the damage themselves, Loss Adjusters still overlook a lot of the work required! After carefully reviewing their scope, we will advise them of anything we feel they’re missing. We will also justify why the work is necessary. But most importantly, we are persistent and will not rest until we are satisfied that everything is included (according to your terms of your insurance policy) It is our perseverance and hard work that has resulted in lots of very grateful and happy customers. As without our help, the settlement offered would not have covered the costs to professionally repair their home.
