too much time estimating

Are you spending too much time estimating and not enough time producing projects?

Do you know how to get back to doing what you do best?

Contractors often lose time and profit by getting caught in the middle of an insurance claim dispute between the policyholder and the carrier. We can help you defend the scope of needed restoration work and get you back on-site. Don’t engage in the practice of public adjusting without a license! Call us: we’re on your side.
As a contractor, you should be spending your time working with clients, completing projects, and setting up production of the next project. You shouldn’t have to take time out of your day to comply with unreasonable requests for documentation with an insurance claim. That is pulling you away from work sites and can cause you to lose profits in the end.

There are many steps involved in restoration estimating, gathering supporting documents to prove you costs, sketching structure diagrams, accurately defining collateral damage. Even if you have insurance experience, this task can seem daunting. If you are new to it, it can be almost impossible.

Case Study


The Problem:
We are experts in fair claims practices and we can maximize the funds needed to restore your client’s property. Or simply make sure that things covered in the policy for repair or replacement are properly and promptly paid.

We had a contractor contact us after he was called out to do an inspection on behalf of the carrier. He was told they would wait and see the cost before they afforded any coverage. This is an illegal, but an often-used tactic by carriers.

We contacted the carrier and discussed our “fair claims” investigation and produced our carefully prepared documentation, the carrier agreed to send a representative to discuss the value of the loss. The contractor’s estimate was accepted and they were able to concentrate on completing the repairs and restoring the property and left the carrier to us.

The CBS News program 60 Minutes segment documented the lengths to which some carriers will go to avoid paying claims. Watch it here.
The Result:
We help contractors and their clients fight back against this type of abuse by carriers and obtain a full and fair settlement on their insurance claim.
