Estimating: Tips to Help Clients Get Better Insurance Settlements

Remodeling business coach Mark Paskell shares what he learned from his  insurance claim workshop audience.

“Contractors [are reporting] insurance claims as low as 1/3 of actual damage,” Paskell writes. “I recommend that you tell all of your customers and friends not to  accept the first insurance claim offer!”
