These guidelines are not refrenced in your policy but will still likely be the main governing document when they try to settle your claim.  The only way to get a fair settlement is to use the plain language of the policy as it was intended.

#6 My Restoration Contractor Says They Are Insurance Experts.

While many contractors accept insurance proceeds as payment for their services. They are not licensed adjusters, they can not determine coverage, they can not determine what repairs are owed under the policy and they can not negotiate with your insurance companies.

These are violations of Utah State Law and your contractor may be breaking the law and subject to penalties and jail time.
