Xactimate Writing Service
QuikClaims provides professional Xactimate estimate writing using the same software that insurance companies use for better, faster claim approvals. In addition to estimates, we write supplements for items that may have been overlooked on the originally approved estimate. Supplementation can add 20-30% additional revenue to the job.
To help secure line item approval, we will optionally negotiate on your behalf with the insurance adjuster. This can save you a tremendous amount of time and make you a lot more money on each job.
We want to write all your estimates… but we’ll settle for a few.
QuikClaims is not an ordinary estimate writing company. Our team members have spent years in the field managing various types of construction and restoration projects. We carefully review each file, assess and identify code requirements and build a detailed scope that creates better, more accurate Xactimate estimates.
Give us a shot on your next project. You’ll be glad you did. We make it easy to receive and review status updates on each of your claims through our online CRM portal, available 24-hours a day. Each estimate is branded with your logo and is typically turned round in 1-2 business days. Same day and weekend Xactimate writing service is also available.
Total Build Back
Due to the vulnerable nature of roofing systems during hail, wind and ice storms, Xactimate roof estimates are the most common type of estimates we write. Roof estimating writing services will take into account often relevant local and national building code requirements that apply to your area and roof type.
Xactimate Water Mitigation
Water mitigation and water damage restoration projects require specialized knowledge and experience dealing with flood-damaged or leak-damaged properties. Water mitigation may go hand-in-hand with a roofing project, so you’ll want an Xactimate writing service with in-depth knowledge of both.
Xactimate Fire Restoration
Fire damage restoration includes the process of returning a fire and smoke damaged property to pre-loss condition. Fire restoration may involve things like of property board up, demolition and reconstruction on top of tasks such as debris, odor and soot removal, contents cleaning and working to remove any disturbed hazards such as lead and asbestos.
Xactimate Storm Damage
QuikClaims offers unique expertise in disaster response, to address intense situations that result in hurricane storm damage or tornado storm damage. Ask about a hurricane Xactimate estimate set that covers multiple areas of your property. We may need to write multiple Xactimate estimates for different insurance companies, depending on the areas of the property that are damaged.
Xactimate Build Back
If your property suffered severe storm damage, total build back estimates will include several areas of your property – including exterior areas like windows, siding, roof, tree removal, window wraps, and more – along with interior areas that must be rebuilt from water damage.
When items are missed in the initial scope or when unforeseen work requirements develop during construction, supplemental estimates account for these cost factors. QuikClaims writes supplements on your behalf, submits to the insurance company and follows up with the insurance adjuster until items are approved. That way you can stay focused on finishing the job and get paid for the extra work.
