Types of Claims
We can help contractors, or property owners, with three different types of claims. Small or large, we handle each claim the same.
Our Large Network of Professionals For Contractors and Public Adjusters
Contractors, and even Public Adjusters, need assistance reviewing insurance policies. We have an amazing network, including attorneys experienced with insurance claims, available to review policies in depth. This review includes all coverages, along with any endorsements or exclusions that may affect the claim, as well as other critical information.
To properly handle a claim, the property’s value must be established. This ensures no deductions on the claim. Valuations are necessary to ensure co-insurance clauses are met, and to prevent any deductions on the settlement.
Meteorologists and Industrial Hygienists
We have independent meteorologists who can verify storm dates, and we have industrial hygienists who are certified to anticipate hazardous conditions that could adversely affect the a worker's health. This is important when maximizing your Xactimate estimates.
Our team includes HAAG certified inspectors, along with experienced roofers, masons, plumbers, and electricians who specialize in code compliance. Their combined expertise will help create the estimate to bring the property back up to code — prior to restoration.
We have a large network of estimators, industry specialists, architects, and other resources who combine their experience to write fully maximized Xactimate® estimates. This includes city ordinances and code compliance documentation.
Our Network adjusters will meet with you, the contractor or public adjuster, first. Then they will schedule a conference call with you and your property owner, going over all the specifics of the claim, as well as the process.
Insurance companies try to use engineers to deny valid claims. To counterbalance this, we have our Network engineers to prove the opposite side of the insurance company’s argument. Our experts focus on the claim damage, refuting claims of compromised structural integrity.
If appraisal is recommended, we have a Network of appraisers to help contractors or public adjusters receive a balanced appraisal of the property.
Our Network has one of the most well-known lawyers in the industry. At NO COST to the contractor, attorneys are behind the scenes filing whatever letters and judicial motions are necessary to keep your claim moving forward to final settlement.
Systems & Processes
With an analytical CRM, our network notates and records all claim progress, so that at a glance we can see what stage the claim is in.
Working with Contractors Network and Training Center
What happens when you reach out to us? First, we will set up meetings with our network partners to discuss your claim. They'll review your paperwork, visit the job site, and evaluate their value-add to your work. Working together is simple, and they are only paid on the difference between the insurance offer and the additional amounts they get approved for you. For example, a recent claim was denied roughly $700,000 in additional work for more than a year. The insurance company refused to reinspect the property. We brought on our attorney which then forced the carrier to go to appraisal. In this example, the contractor will make an extra $250,000 in profit. And yes, that's after all fees and expenses have been paid. So, there's only upside for everyone, including the property owner and you. And best of all, you haven't had to make one phone call to the insurance company, or deal with their paperwork, adjusters, engineers, Xactimate®, or worst of all — attorneys!

Why Choose Us?
Some contractors choose to go at it alone when it comes to large loss claims. But if you're fed up with "no" from insurance companies, all it will take is one phone call to get them to "yes." Our network goes to bat for you, which leaves you more time to make sales, do more real work, and have more time for yourself and your family. And if our network of professionals doesn't increase your claim, you don't pay a dime.
