Xactimate is the preferred estimating software in the industry, used by 99% of insurance carriers and compatible with various platforms. It is the go-to tool for adjusters, whether they specialize in commercial or residential claims, to assess fair market pricing for covered damages.

We use the most current version of Xactimate, which as of 2023 is Version 28..

To create an estimate for a project, a Scope of Work must be prepared to outline the damages to the structure or its contents and the necessary repairs. Essentially, a Scope of Work is a comprehensive list of all the work required to complete the project. When dealing with reconstruction or mitigation, a Scope of Work should include a floor plan, diagram, or dimensions of affected areas, an inventory of damaged items, a list of necessary tasks or labor hours, and photographic evidence of the damage.

As the most widely used estimating software in the insurance claims industry, it is much more likely that you’ll reach an agreed-upon repair cost with your insurance adjuster. However, just because your estimate is written in Xactimate does not guarantee that it will be agreed to, especially without a few revisions. Opinions may differ in regards to damages and the necessary scope of repairs, and coverage may not always exist under the insurance policy.

You’ll receive your estimate from us within 24-48 hours .

You’ll be billed as soon as the work is completed, and can pay by either check or credit card

Yes, your estimate can be put on your own letterhead; just upload your company’s logo image and enter your business information on the Scope of Work, and we’ll do the rest..

Xactimate is what the insurance companies use, it’s the most widely understood and has become the standard in the estimating industry. By Etihad completing the estimate in Xactimate, we’re using the same software that they’re using – think of it like speaking the same language. Plus, there’s a line in there for everything, so it’s less likely that something is left out..

It’s up to you – we can write it as a ghost writer if you wish it to look like your company wrote it; or we can do it as ourselves/our own company. If this is an estimate where we are doing the negotiation, it is generally easier if we write up the estimate as ourselves but under your company banner; however, if you are doing the negotiations, we can write it as if it were created by you or one of your project managers.

Yes. Xactimate is updated monthly with a Price List for all zip codes in the United States and Canada. A Price List is a set of unit costs for labor, equipment, and materials which are based on market surveys performed in each geographical area by zip code. Your report will always be completed with the most recent Price List for your zip code.
