Storm Chasers

 

continued

Restoration contractors do go into damaged areas with all of the supplies they need since prices tend to rise in highly damaged areas because of limited supplies and high demand for them.

Xactimate is an estimating software program used to help price out the costs of supplies, manpower and other overhead costs. It must be adjusted to reflect the prices in a specific area because they vary widely depending on geography and other factors.

Consumers should check references of any company and see if there are part of a national trade association such as RIA.

Yes, there are "storm chasers" who come in and take advantage of the situation, but the vast majority of restoration contractors are trained and equipped to help residents put their lives back together following a traumatic event.Their goal is to make it better for their clients to the best of their ability.
