During this time, the restoration company will finish the pack-out of the contents and the initial debris cleanup.Typically you will talk to or meet  with your restoration company representative to discuss the rebuild portion of the claim.

This is a great time to discuss the process and timeline of the restoration. Your insurance company owes you to put your home back to its pre-loss condition, but that doesn’t mean everything has to go back exactly like it was.

It just means that is all they will pay to have done. But if you were planning to install granite countertops anyway, you might as well discuss doing that now. It’s cheaper to pay for that upgrade now than to have new ones installed and take them out in 2 months to be replaced.  Just something to think about.
