To expedite the claims process our firm utilizes Xactimate software to ensure fair, market area pricing in settling losses. This tool levels the field for estimates of emergency and rebuild quotes and keeps expenses to a minimum while ensuring fair pricing for contractors and optimum results for your insured who have suffered the loss.

We are HAAG Certified for residential and commercial roof inspection providing insurers with the expertise to handle major hail and wind events. To ensure safe and through roof inspections and avoid hazardous conditions we gain access to problematic sites through a new technology option that provides an innovative solution. Unmanned Arial Vehicles (UAVs), more commonly known as drones, can be used to obtain photographs or video of the potentially hazardous site. Drones can be remotely piloted, eliminating risks of personal safety but obtaining detailed photographs or video of most damaged areas. Estimates for repairs can be easily deduced based on the information collected.
