You Didn't Take Care Of Regular Maintenance Of Your Property Resulting In Damage
Often insurance companies cite maintenance defects as a cause of damage. If you have accurate and thorough maintenance records you can certainly use these records to dispute an insurance denial.
Improper Installation Caused The Damage
An insurer may attempt to blame the damage on manufacturing or installation defects if you've made any changes to the property.
The Damage Wasn't Caused By A Covered Peril
Policyholders are given the benefit of ambiguous language in a policy. If the policy is unclear about which perils are covered, the insurer may be compelled to cover damages.
Unfortunately Damage Happened Outside Of The Policy Period
Insurers may attempt to blame a denial on pre-existing damage. However, most insurance companies will inspect the property prior to selling the insurance policy—and if the inspection shows that the property was in acceptable condition, the insurer may be forced to issue payment.
