Hurricane Damage Restoration to Begin
Hurricane damage restoration to begin soon. As the United States has braced itself for another hurricane, winds and flooding have swept through. For some this is an ordinary experience because of where they live. For others, maybe this is the first storm they’ve had to deal with. Whatever the case may be, there will be a mess to clean up and there will be property that has been damaged or destroyed by Sally.
The contractor role in hurricane damage restoration
Restoration contractors play a vital role in hurricane damage restoration. Contractors have to move in quickly to restore what was lost for home owners. Once it is safe, the area will be inundated with insurance adjusters and contractors. Contractors will receive estimates from insurance adjusters saying how much they are going to pay for the job. Now the contractor has to decide if they are willing to do the job for that price. Many contractors will say ok and accept what the insurance company is offering. Some wish they could get more out of the job so that they can restore the property properly.
Restoration contractors get more out of their jobs
Sometimes the insurance company does a good job and gives a fair price for doing the restoration work. However, oftentimes there is a lot that they miss. When the insurance adjuster misses details, that can end up costing the contractor more money or result in a home that may not be restored the way it could have. What is the solution? It is important to have someone who has been in the insurance claims and restoration business for decades to look over what the insurance company has proposed.
Insurance companies use a software called Xactimate to estimate what the cost of restoring a damaged property will be. There are third parties who have used Xactimate for decades as adjusters who now provide an Xactimate estimate writing service for restoration contractors. These professionals work directly with the contractor and can look at the pictures, look at what the insurance company has written, and re-write the Xactimate estimate. Contractors can then deliver the estimate to the insurance company. The result is often a significant difference in favor of the contractor, which results in a better restoration job and at no cost to the home owner.
