More than 1/3 of homeowners have a fear of fraud when hiring a home repair contractor, according to HomeAdvisor. The MAPFRE Select Home Restoration Program is designed to eliminate that fear and provide MAPFRE policyholders with a trusted and reliable service.
"When trouble strikes and your property is damaged and in need of repair, we all just want to fix our home quickly and without hassle," said Steven Shiner, Senior Vice President of Claims. "We're excited to introduce this program to make the claim and repair process as effortless as possible for our policyholders."
MAPFRE policyholders are free to choose their own contractors. However, those policyholders who choose to participate in the MAPFRE Select Home Restoration Program are granted additional benefits that include:
- Priority Contractor Service in the Handling of New Reported Losses
- Priority Emergency Service when Disaster Strikes
- On Site Inspection Performed
- Limited Warranty on Work Performed for Three Years and more.
MAPFRE Insurance has established contractual relationships that will provide its customers access to a national network of more than 2,000 repair contractors specializing in various disciplines including emergency response and mitigation, fire and smoke clean up, roofing, water remediation, as well as restoration and reconstruction services.
