One of the top concerns that we get from restoration contractors is
how to charge for services. Its not an easy question. We have spent
considerable time producing an estimating course that addresses the
issues restorers face and now that course is here!
This is specifically a residential mitigation estimating course. This course is not a
training course for Xactimate or any other estimating system. They
have their own training courses that show you how to use their
programs. This course starts where they stop. There is a combination
of lecture and hands-on workshops to teach students how to estimate
You should expect the average collected amount on your invoices to
increase after attending this Restoration Estimating Course. Students
learn to focus on minimizing the difference between the amount of the
first estimate delivered and the collected amount.
The instructors of this course are Jeremy and Nick.
Jeremy has been in restoration for over 20 years. He has committed
himself to making sure that his company gets paid a full and fair price
for the services they render. Nick is the lead estimator in the
restoration company Jeremy runs. He prepares nearly a thousand
estimates a year and he is an expert at getting the details right so
that those estimates get collected. Jeremy and Nick are going to share
not only tips and tricks but solid processes that help you get estimates
done right everyday.
What you will learn:

- Maintaining clear communication from the field to the staff members entering the estimate in the office
- Justification of your estimate through notes, photos and documentation from reference sources such as the S500 when necessary
- A S500 reference document that helps you associate this valuable document with services you have rendered
- A proven scoping process (we have used this for years)
- Hands on estimating of losses in our flood house
- Negotiation skills that help you get paid for necessary work
- Negotiate on the estimate that you prepare in class
