How Xactimate Helps With Insurance Claim Estimates

What Is Xactimate? And How Can It Help With Insurance Claim Estimates?

Xactimate® is a powerful computer software used to estimate construction costs in insurance claim settlements. It is widely used by insurance companies, adjusters, restoration professionals, and contractors to calculate the cost of property damage repairs and replacements. Xactimate offers a comprehensive solution for creating precise and detailed estimates throughout all stages of the claims process.

Who Uses Xactimate?

Insurance Adjusters

Insurance adjusters rely on Xactimate to accurately estimate property damage costs. It helps them streamline the estimating process and produce professional-looking estimates promptly. Adjusters can access up-to-date pricing research and accurately calculate depreciation, waste, time, and materials for each project using Xactimate.

Public Adjusters

Public adjusters also utilize Xactimate to ensure accurate estimates for their clients; Xactimate helps public adjusters negotiate fair claim settlements on behalf of their clients. While many public adjusters write their estimates, we at Avner Gat Inc. do not write Xactimate estimates. We rely on expert General Contractors to write the Xactimate estimates, and then we utilize the contractor and estimate to negotiate a fair claim settlement.

Restoration Companies

Restoration companies heavily rely on Xactimate to estimate the cost of restoring damaged properties. The software allows them to create precise and detailed estimates quickly, enabling them to provide accurate quotes to insurance companies and homeowners while maintaining profitability in their projects. Xactimate’s inclusion of local pricing research ensures that restoration companies account for regional variations in materials and labor costs.

General Contractors

General contractors involved in insurance claim settlements can benefit from using Xactimate to provide estimates that align with industry standards. While they might not use Xactimate as their primary estimating tool, knowing the software and its pricing methods allows them to communicate and negotiate effectively with insurance adjusters. That’s why the general contractors we work with must be proficient in Xactimate and write their own estimates for each claim. They can work alongside adjusters’ Xactimate estimates, providing additional subcontractor bids to support their estimates.

How Does Xactimate Help Homeowners During Insurance Claim Settlement Negotiations?

Insurance companies often favor estimates generated using Xactimate because they trust the software’s precision and reliability. With Xactimate, homeowners can present accurate and detailed estimates during claim settlement negotiations. This increases the likelihood of receiving a fair and comprehensive settlement that adequately covers the costs of repairs or replacements.
