Xactimate Water Damage Estimates
After a flood, hurricane, pipe burst or fire, it can be difficult for property owners to come up with a plan to get everything back to normal. As a local restoration contractor, they’re often looking to you for advice on how to move forward.
The problem? Insurance claims aren’t always as cut and dry as most people think. There are certain protocols that have to be followed right after a water leak or other type of water damage to ensure mold doesn’t affect drywall, flooring, or carpet.
By giving your customer a thorough and formal proposal, you’re able to move forward with the water extraction process and help them dry out as quickly as possible.
How do you get the fastest and most accurate quoting possible? Through a special software program called Xactimate.
This tool is often considered the industry standard for insurance companies and other professionals. Unfortunately, the downside is that it can be difficult to learn and time consuming if you aren’t familiar with all of the features.
Thankfully, there’s a better alternative. Our Xactimate water damage estimate writing service is an excellent way to ensure you’re quoting these types of insurance jobs as accurately as possible from the start.
Give us a shot on your next water damage restoration project. You’ll be glad you did. We make it easy to receive and review status updates on each of your roofing claims through our online CRM portal, available 24-hours a day. Each water damage estimate is branded with your logo and typically turned round in 1-2 business days. Same day and weekend service available.
In addition to water damage estimates, we provide fire damage estimates.

Xactimate Water Mitigation Estimating
As you already know, leaks require a certain level of expert quoting to ensure all aspects of the water mitigation process are included.
If you miss a particular part of the estimate or bid, it can be hard to get water mitigation covered under the claim using supplemental estimates in the future.
Instead, it is better to work with our QuikClaims team to get a thorough and comprehensive bid from the very beginning.
Xactimate Water Damage Restoration Estimating

Residential Water Damage Estimates
Repairing residential water damage after a leak or storm can be somewhat difficult. The good news is that Xactimate is specifically designed for all types of buildings, including homes.
QuikClaims understands that most residences are different from others. And that’s why we offer complete and accurate estimates for contractors who work with residential property owners in this capacity.
Commercial Water Damage Estimates
When it comes to commercial buildings, water damage tends to be a lot more catastrophic. With so many electrical components, pieces of furniture, and soft surfaces like carpet, it can take much more effort to get everything to dry out.
QuikClaims is here to help contractors just like you create professional and accurate commercial water damage estimates. Let our team of Xactimate writers include the most comprehensive items possible to increase job size and reduce the need for supplementals.
Water Damage Claim Supplements
Of course, even the first Xactimate estimate needs a little reworking after you get started on the job. And QuikClaims can help with that process, too.
Let our team of Xactimate professionals find and quote additional items that might have been missed in the initial job bid, giving you the upper hand when presenting your needs to the insurance company.
