Can I submit receipts to my insurer for home repairs that I do myself?

I'm thinking of doing some home repairs myself to save money. Will my insurance company accept the receipts for these repairs?

In most cases, insurance companies will allow you to do complete repairs to your home after suffering a covered loss. You may be required to follow specific guidelines to make sure the work is completed to a satisfactory level. Once the repairs are complete, you can submit the receipt to the insurance company for review and they can reimburse you for the cost of materials.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
