Unless you’re proficient with Xactimate software and you understand how to write estimates, you should hire professionals to do the job.
When you hire the team at American Roof Supplements to write your estimate, you’ll be able to present a complete, professional document to the insurance adjuster. This will minimize pushback from the insurance company, get the roofing job underway faster, and pave the way for supplementing later.
The ARS Team Knows Estimates
Writing professional estimates is our business.
- We use Xactimate software (the same software that insurance companies use)
- We know what should go into an estimate
- We know what should not go into an estimate
- We understand what insurance adjusters need to see
- We understand the balance between front-end estimating and back-end supplementing
What’s Our Expertise?
The estimate writers on our team know the roofing industry inside and out. The group includes former roofers and contractors who are now Xactimate experts who understand the claims process. Our experienced writers have produced thousands of estimates, so you can be assured that we will complete your estimate professionally.
What is Xactimate?
Xactimate is software used to calculate the price of roof work–usually for damage repairs or replacements–to produce an estimate. Since materials and labor costs vary from region to region, Xactimate automatically adjusts pricing to every zip code and updates that pricing monthly. This means that the estimates we write reflect actual costs.
Our Estimates are Conservative
Our experience dealing with insurance companies in the roofing industry guides us in our estimate writing.
We write conservative estimates that are fair and reasonable, paving the way for effective negotiations with insurance adjusters. As roof work progresses, additional items that need addressing can be photo-documented and fixed. With photos of the completed repairs, roofers can file watertight supplement claims that insurance companies will likely approve.
Estimate Costs Are Taken Off Supplement Costs
Our estimates cost $50. However, if we write an estimate and a supplement for the same job, the total cost is $150.
Timing and Delivery
We guarantee to turn around your estimate within 72 hours (excluding weekends and holidays), or it’s free. All estimates are written from scratch using Xactimate software. Your logo is included, and the final document is complete and professional in appearance. We do not charge for modifications.
