One of the challenges experienced by insurance adjusters and contractors is determining the best repair for the job. In the insurance world we use the term “like kind and quality” which is another way of saying it needs to look just like it did before or even better.

Ultimately it is always up to the home owner about how a repair will be done, but its usually best if the insurance company agrees so the settlement payment agrees with total cost of the job.
