Fire Damage - Insurance Claim Question
Part of our garage roof recently burned due to the wildfires on November 15, 2008 which effect a lot of Yorba Linda, CA.
Our insurance company has come back and agreed to repair that portion of the roof, but now our roof will be two different colors. The tile maker no longer makes that line of tile, so we will be forced to pick something similar, but due to aging, the rest of the roof will not match. Our insurance company is stating that they owe us for like kind and quality, but not for "matching". Additionally, they will cover what is visible from one "line-of-sight" but that is it. They are also doing this with painting the interior and exterior of the home.
Is this the final verdict, or can this some how be worked around? The paint is especially surprising to me, as there was fire up to our backyard which leads into a Canyon, to the right of our home (we own 1 and 1/3rd acres, so no neighbors to the right), and five neighbors to the left of us are all total burn downs.
