Xactimate Fire Damage Estimates
We can all agree that a fire is one of the most catastrophic and detrimental events a property owner can face. And the effects last long after the smoke has cleared and the fire department has left the scene.
While most residential and commercial insurance claims happen smoothly, it is always a good idea to give your client a proper bid that matches up to the estimate the adjuster provides. This allows for a better comparison and more comprehensive job quoting.
How is this possible? Through a special software program called Xactimate.
In fact, it is considered the industry standard for insurance companies and other professionals. However, the downside is that it can be difficult to learn and time-consuming if you aren’t familiar with all of the features.

Xactimate Fire Damage Restoration Estimating
There are just so many different facets to consider when quoting a fire damage project. For example, contents restoration can sometimes be a lot bigger of a job or there might even be a need for water damage mitigation due to the efforts of first responders.
The good news is that QuikClaims understands how each job can be different from another. That’s why our Xactimate estimate writers create unique quotes for each job we help you bid.
The end result? More specific line items and a better overall scope of work to present to the insurance adjuster. This leads to less supplemental requests and a smoother process for all involved.
Residential Fire Damage Estimates
After a residential fire, there’s a good chance the homeowner doesn’t even know where to begin with the restoration process.
By working as their advocate and presenting a better Xactimate estimate, you can help make the claims experience smoother and more effective to their needs.
In turn, this helps build confidence and trust between you and the property owner that carries throughout the entire fire restoration process.
Commercial Fire Damage Estimates
Fire damage restoration on a commercial building can be a lot more complicated to bid. That’s one area where Xactimate’s detailed reports really come in handy by giving contractors a better line item list of necessary repair or mitigation tasks.
At QuikClaims, we can help you with this process. Our expert level Xactimate team understands that commercial properties require a different set of needs than a residential property.
Best of all, we offer quick turnaround times to give you the information necessary for bidding insurance jobs as soon as possible.
Fire Damage Claim Supplements
While the initial Xactimate report is usually spot on, there are times when additional damage is discovered or circumstances change.
In addition to a general report, our Xactimate estimate writers can also assist with supplementals. By understanding the nuances of this robust software, we’re able to often include more line items and offer far more comprehensive quotes than other reporting tools.
