Our Insurance Appraisal and Claims Estimating Assistance includes;
Estimate Review & Reproduction: Many times insurance companies require line item detailed estimates from policyholders or their representatives. It's a way to compare apples to apples as opposed to a lump sum bid by contractors or subcontractors. We can consult and assist with the review and/or preparation of such estimates. We also have Reproduction Services where an estimate can be reproduced using Xactimate Estimating Software. Xactimate is used by more than 80% of insurance carriers.
Damage Inspection and Scope: We can provide a complete and thorough inspection and scope of the claim damages. The Scope will include visiting the loss location, full detailed sketch of the damaged areas, as well as detailed, labeled photographs to support the damage incurred to the property.
Independent Appraiser Consulting: Have specific questions about an appraisal, the appraisal process or plan of attack for your appraisal. Need recommendations on a specific type of letter needed, an educated and supported reply to a dispute, or questions answered about a specific building process? Independent Appraisers deal with many types of issues and rebuttals from the other appraiser or umpire. We consult with other appraisers using our multi-year experience in the appraisal process. From simple questions to assistance in creating a complete ring-binder, organizing claim documents, that completely supports their position.
