For Fire, Smoke or Water Damage in Your Home, Hire a Contractor that Uses Xactimate Software

If you have experienced fire, smoke or water damage in your home or business, it is no laughing matter? It is an emergency situation that needs addressing quickly with experienced professionals that have the knowledge of handling both the insurance claim portion and the contracting to get your home or business renovated so that you can move back in and be operational as quickly as possible.


In the insurance world, Xactimate is the industry’s easiest-to-use and most comprehensive software solution for filing fire, smoke or water damage property claims. It is the exact software that all of the insurance companies used to determine the scope and price of home renovation work.

If a homeowner hires a contract that uses Xactimate, it will be much less hassle for the customer to deal with someone that uses the same software because there’s no haggling over the price. Having the contract and insurance company using Xactimate on the estimate speeds up the time of the claim because the insurance company can literally accept the job over the phone because by using this software the contractor’s prices are literally the same as the insurance adjusters to the penny.

The homeowner does not have to get multiple estimates to see if it fits in the budget that the insurance allowed. If the insurance adjuster writes the estimate the contractor who uses Xactimate can do it for that price with no haggling.

A contractor that uses Xactimate has the expertise and experience necessary to provide you with a comprehensive scope of the job, while immediately beginning to minimize your home losses. Hassle-Free, Direct Insurance Billing is utilized as a courtesy to customers. As soon as work is completed at your residence or property, the contractor assembles a comprehensive scope of work and expedites this to your insurance carrier.

With Xactimate, estimating a project is as simple as:

    • Gathering loss information
    • Sketching a diagram of the structure
    • Selecting the related project costs
    • Reviewing and verifying the accuracy of the estimate
    • Submitting it to the insurance company

Time is of the essence

It is really important that you clean up the water damage as quickly as possible to avoid mold settling into your walls, floors, etc. of your home. That is another reason that it is wise to use a contractor that has Xactimate software to communicate directly and expediently with an insurance company on your behalf.
