Contractors and customers feel the squeeze when the insurance carrier plays pricing games with the estimating and collection process of insurance claims restoration. We discuss New Construction Pricelists being applied to restoration scenarios with contractors in Minnesota, California, and Washington.
We discuss the issue, rebuttals, and resources including the Restoration Pricing Position Paper from the Advocacy and Government Affairs Committee (AGA) of the Restoration Industry Association (RIA),
“New construction price settings in certain pricing programs increase labor productivity which reduces prices in a way that may not be appropriate for restoration. Indirect tasks that must occur to accomplish direct repairs – known as “Supporting Events” – may need to be appropriately adjusted due to the extent of the damage in a restoration project.
This discussion educates the listener on the underlying factors which lead to these manipulations and provides the contractor with some well-thought-out rebuttals. While there are no cheat codes that will eliminate the squid games, restorers will find it refreshing to know that resources are being created and advanced regain and maintain sustainable claims practices.
