AccuWin’s automated estimator was built to solve an industry wide problem of accurately pricing window restoration claims. Traditionally window claims end in a disputed scope of repair and price for that repair. Our experts understand that virtually every window restoration claim is different which makes scoping and pricing repairs almost impossible. The Accuwin automated estimator should be considered a tool to use when the damage is clearly identifiable, and the scope of repair is known. The automated system is not effective when expert knowledge is needed to determine whether parts are available for repair or if an alternative method of repair vs. replace is an option. At least for now, in our opinion, humans are needed to determine such things. When using the automated estimator for pricing windows you will receive a full report that can be input into your existing Xactimate estimate as a bid item for windows. The details for each window will be noted so that homeowners and contractors will know exactly which window(s) is/are in the scope and what interior and exterior finishes the contractor will be dealing with. The goal is for the pricing to be accurate so that contractors will be willing to complete the work without submitting supplements and or fighting about the job cost with adjusters.
AccuWin’s automated estimator requires the user to identify the windows and the damage to the windows prior to use. The following links are useful tools to help identify what damage you are looking at as well as helping to identify what brand of window it is you are dealing with.
