Who is responsible for paying for restoration services?
Ultimately, the property owner is responsible for payment. Work authorizations are signed by the property owner to authorize work to begin.

The restoration contractor oftentimes collects only the deductible amount and bills the insurance provider as a service to the customer. In the case of large loss, the property owners mortgage company may be included as a payee on the claim. If your claim is not covered by insurance or as the owner you decide not to make a claim, you will be asked to pay in full at time of service.
