Frequently Asked Questions
I own a vacation home in Vancouver, why do I need Silverfern to check on it?
Some insurance policies will be voided if regular inspections are not conducted while you are away. Many problems can occur from theft, vandalism, infestations, mold, water leaks, or damage that may occur as a result of a malfunctioning system. Having a person check on your home will help to ensure that your insurance policy remains effective and valid should something go wrong and gives you peace of mind. You have the assurance that a professional is looking after your home. If an issue is found you will be notified with a cost effective solution to your problem that will be handled immediately.
