Evaluating Floor Tile Claims gives adjusters everything they need to know about tile floor damage, and earns them Continuing Education credits for the State of Florida—at no cost to them.

Parkland, Florida, United States (October 10, 2013) — Among the most common claims made in property insurance are those for floor tile damage. Adjusters must  address multiple potential concerns when assessing these claims—and this class was created to help them do just that.

  • An Overview of Floor Tile Types and Manufacturing
  • Proper Installation of Floor Tiles
  • Floor Tile Bond Failure
  • Moisture Damage to Tile Floors
  • Damage to Tiles over Wood-Framed Floors
  • Characteristics of Surface Damage

Students learn exactly how tiles are made, installed and damaged—and how this knowledge can be used when evaluating tile damage claims. The course includes hands-on demonstrations that show what kind of damage can be caused by ordinary household objects.
