Bob did have some other thoughts and tips that he would like to share with those who were
affected or for those who want to be prepared just in case this were to ever happen to them.
He advises to never give the okay for work to begin without prior approval from your insurance
company. The last think you want to do is get stuck with a bill that you weren’t planning on
paying. Along with this, he also strongly urges people to only work with licensed contractors
who have experience and an established reputation. Also, he says to always be leery of door-to-
door solicitors, and anyone who attempts to pressure you into services you aren’t completely
sure of; these can be signs of a scam. Bob would also like to let people know that Erie Insurance
does offer coverage that you can purchase to provide allotments for matching. If you do not
have homeowner’s insurance with Erie Insurance, he urges you to reach out to your current
carrier. There also may be other markets out there that have created a solution to this
challenge as well, so make sure to do your research!
