You should not make permanent repairs until after the insurance adjuster inspects the damage or loss. Only repairs that are required to protect the property from further loss or damage should be done before the damage/loss has been inspected for purposes of claim approval and valuation. If you are not sure whether your repair will be considered “permanent”, ask the insurance company first.
