Property Claims Loss Assessors (PCLA) wants to make connections with plumbers in Northern Ireland.

As water damage from pipework is the most common problem when it comes to property damage claims, PCLA wants to connect with the plumbers who will be receiving that first call to stop the water and get them to recommend PCLA’s services.

The PCLA team is made up of Engineers and Surveyors who carry out a full dampness survey of property, assess the damage and present a cost estimate of repairs to the insurance company. PCLA will then negotiate with the insurers to agreement.
