What should you do when a loss occurs?
Following is information that will assist you in the event of a loss. It outlines how further damage can be prevented and what other documentation will be needed to process your claim.

Protect Property From Further Damage
No matter what type of a loss, you must take reasonable steps to protect your property from further damage. If damage is due to a covered loss your policy will pay for emergency repairs to prevent further damage.

  • In case of roof damage – tarp the roof to avoid water or other damage to the inside.
  • Insulate and/or board up after fire, wind, hail or a break-in to secure property. This can help prevent additional damage or freeze up.
  • When appropriate shut off the water.
  • If at all possible during the winter, maintain heat in the building to avoid additional frozen pipes or plumbing damages. If impossible to maintain heat, put anti-freeze into all plumbing fixtures and if necessary contact a plumber to winterize the plumbing.


  • Only do those repairs necessary to prevent further damage.
  • Give the company representative an opportunity to see the damage.
  • In case of lightning damage to electronic equipment or appliances please do not discard or destroy the item(s) until agreed to with the company representative.

You will need to obtain a detailed estimate from the contractor or repair company that will be used to complete the repairs. Repair estimates can be sent, faxed or
