Commercial Roofing Supplements
Commercial roofing is a whole different animal compared to residential roofing. This is particularly true for storm restoration insurance claims. The size and scope of commercial roofing jobs makes this channel a great opportunity to grow your roofing business. Commercial roofing involves a similar process to residential flat roofing, which is a much different process than installing a pitched roof or sloped roof. Understanding the key differences between commercial roofing and residential roofing can ensure that you are bidding and installing the jobs correctly.
About Roofing Supplements
A commercial roof supplement is when a contractor asks for additional materials, labor, or trades to be added to the insurance claim for a commercial roofing job. An adjuster may not include enough material, labor, safety provisions, project management expense, etc. to get the job done correctly. In some cases, these missing items are required by local building codes or OSHA. When this happens, a contractor writes a new Xactimate Estimate to include those missing items and submits it to the insurance company for approval. Contractors must also include supporting documentation such as photos, measurements, local code requirements, OSHA requirements, and invoices to explain why these funds are needed.
