Understanding Your Insurance Scope of Work with Davis Roofing Solutions
As a property owner, comprehending the process of filing an insurance claim for damaged property is crucial. Upon submitting a claim, your insurance carrier usually arranges for an inspection by an insurance adjuster. This professional evaluates the damage and, if repairs are necessary, provides a ‘scope of damages’ or ‘scope of work’.
Unraveling the Insurance Scope of Work
The ‘scope of work’ is the insurance company’s estimation of the cost to repair the damaged property, returning it to its pre-damaged condition. It is their evaluation of what is necessary to restore your property, both aesthetically and functionally. This scope includes an itemized list of required repair items, with each of these items priced individually.
Usually, the damage report is generated through software like Xactimate, which calculates the average repair cost based on your geographical location. It factors in labor rates, permitting fees, labor minimums, etc., helping the carrier determine the total cost to settle the claim appropriately.
This document is an invaluable tool for homeowners, ensuring all damages are properly addressed. If a repair or replacement has been approved, it should be listed in the scope of work. Reviewing your scope also ensures that you select a contractor that offers fair pricing. Unfortunately, some contractors provide inflated repair estimates or include unnecessary costs. At Davis Roofing Solutions, we align our work with the insurance carrier’s scope. With clear documentation outlining approved costs, we ensure transparency and prevent unexpected expenses.
What if the Scope of Work Isn’t Comprehensive?
While insurance adjusters strive to accurately assess property damage and estimate repair costs, errors can occur. An adjuster is an insurance expert, but at Davis Roofing Solutions, we are the roofing and general contracting specialists. Sometimes, an adjuster might overlook or not realize the necessity of certain repairs in the scope of work.
At Davis Roofing Solutions, we use the carrier’s scope to identify approved repairs and overlooked items. If an item isn’t listed, it usually means the insurance carrier doesn’t recognize it as needing repair, hence no payment for it. In such scenarios, we can only undertake those specific repairs if the homeowner agrees to cover the additional costs.
If a homeowner identifies shortcomings in their insurance carrier’s scope of work, there are ways to rectify the issue. As a trusted roofing contractor, when a homeowner chooses Davis Roofing Solutions, we inspect the entire property to identify all damaged areas. If we find unlisted but necessary repair items, we can provide the homeowner with comprehensive documentation explaining why these items should be covered in the claim. With Davis Roofing Solutions, rest assured your property will be fully restored without undue burden.
