Property Loss Inspections
Some of the Items we have to perform for a Property Loss Inspection:
- A site visit to construction or loss location.
- Recording and doccumenting the extent of damage.
- Photo of damage sustained.
- Dimensional layout of the home or building.
- Reconstruction estimate.
- Roof Inspections.
- Hail and storm damage accessment.
- We can write your claim in Xactimate to match most Insurance Carriers Requirements.
As independent and experienced construction consultants, we work primarily for Hoemowners, Building Owners, Adjusters, Insurance Companies and Examiners. Our experienced construction consultants will arrive at the loss location with the needed manpower, tools and equipment required to properly document the extent of the loss in a timely manner. We perform a full site investigation to photograph and document the building size, construction materials and the amount of damage to the original structure. From this information we can develop a Scope of Restoration / Reconstruction and the cost to restore the structure to pre loss condition. The scope of work and estimate can be further developed to provide separate cost impacts for Restoration, Code Upgrade, Renovation and development of the Actual Cash Value.
Per you request we can review and verify remediation / restoration contractor’s and construction contractor’s estimate and invoices for correct scope of work and accuracy of the billing for work completed. This work can expose pricing differences, excessive labor and material, renovation work beyond the loss, and billing oversights saving you unnecessary overpayments on the claim.
