Estimate Review & Analysis
What business owner has time to review over every estimate that their business makes? We understand that business owners need to focus their attention on a variety of details of the business. However, the business needs each estimate to be accurate for continued growth and profitability. We take your estimate and review it to ensure scope accuracy and organization. Most often there are items that have been left out that need to be included on mitigation, remediation, and reconstruction jobs.

Sometimes restoration businesses can get overwhelmed with new jobs, causing unforeseen delays with the estimates. These delays can lead to a contractor losing a possible job. We take this problem out of the equation by getting estimates turned around quickly! Our estimates have been used on many jobs across the country and have been known to help contractors make a 50% gross profit margin. When submitting for an estimate request, please understand that we will need the following information:
a. Take plenty of photos. There are never too many photos.
b. Photos need to be clear and from different angles of the room.
c. Photos need to be labeled as to the appropriate room so that the estimator can identify the needs of the repairs.
d. Show the identifying cause of loss.
e. Take photos of the crawlspace (when it applies to the loss).
a. Accurately measure and draw the sketch of the loss.
b. This can be hand drawn or in the esx file.
c. All openings (windows, doors, pass-through, etc) need to be on the sketch.
d. Measurements of the cabinetry need to be clearly identified on the sketch.
e. All measurements need to be readable so that the estimator can accurately enter the correct information.
f. If a sketch can not be drawn, rooms need to be as close as possible to the exact area where they are located. If the estimator draws each room individually, the estimator needs to be able to put together the sketch like a blueprint/plans.
3. Definition of scope items
a. The scope of the repairs can vary so any items that aren’t able to be identified through photos needs to be made known in the definition.
b. Trim heights and cabinet depths need to be identified.
c. Countertop depths could vary – this needs to be made known.
a. The estimator needs to know who the carrier is so that they can estimate with that information in mind.
b. Certain carriers allow certain items where others do not.
