The last insurance restoration job I did, nobody was given wads of money. Both the insurance company and the mortgage holder(Citibank) had a sequence of inspections and paid out as the job progressed.
The various trades were paid upon passed local inspections in the Columbia County oversight bodies.
Insurance companies don't just write a single check give it to you and hope you fix the house.
So unless the homeowners are accomplished in home improvement, they will be limited as to what they can do and get paid for.
