Xactimate Price List Commentary & Updates - 2018

January

Actionable Insights Commentary:

I don’t know about you, but the Actionable Insights crew took some time off over the holidays to recharge. Not the case with the Xactware Pricing Department, these guys were busy. They made an exceptional number of updates to the Jan 2018 price list, and many of these changes we are pumped about.

  • [EXC ECSB] Sand bags!!! Finally, we have a line item for sand bags. Actionable Insights pinged the Pricing Department about this potential oversight back in Q2 2017. Hard to know what was the catalyst for the update, but regardless, it is a welcome addition.
    • We will be requesting that this sand bag line item be added to the TMP and CLN categories.
      • TMP Category in effort to accommodate temporary roof tarping activities.
      • The CLN category in effort to accommodate pressure washing activities.
        • This notion will also extend to the new [EXC ECW] Wattle line item.
      • This will result in updates to following Insight Sheets:
      • Temporary Roofing Tarping https://www.getinsights.org/insight-sheets/temporary-roof-tarping/
  • WE WERE WRONG! Back in Q3 Actionable Insights Carrier Guidelines event in San Diego we discussed when we it is appropriate to invoice for WTR line items vs HMR line items – in short, we were doing our best to interpret the intention of the Pricing Department. Collectively we generally decided on the following:
    • Asbestos Abatement = HMR
    • Lead Abatement = HMR
    • Bio Hazard = HMR
    • Mold = WTR
      • Interestingly enough, the descriptions associated with the HMR line items were updated in January such that they now explicitly highlight the fact that these HMR line items are traditionally associated with mold abatement.
        • [HMR LABH] Hazardous Waste/Mold Cleaning Technician – per hour
        • Additional Item Info: “Includes: Hourly labor rate for a hazardous waste/mold cleaning technician. Note: The hazardous materials remediation technician typically uses various cleaning and restoration/remediation techniques and methods for testing, handling, processing, packaging, and removal and/or remediation relating to hazardous materials. This may include asbestos, lead, mold, etc.  They may also be involved in general labor activities, equipment setup and decontamination, site preparation, and other activities when associated with these types of hazardous materials.”
      • [DMO DTRLR] Tandem axle dump trailer – per load – including dump fees is a solid addition to the price list, especially for those of you with a tandem axle dump trailer.

February

Actionable Insight Pricelist Change Commentary

February 2018 was another big month for the Xactware Pricing Department!

First off, who is doing the independent analysis of granite/quartz countertops? Itel appears to be attempting to service this aspect of the claim as they have a research division that is equipped to identify and subsequently value granite/quartz countertops on a one-off basis. We spoke to Itel about this, and they recommended contacting them first in an effort to facilitate the analysis. There does not appear to be a straightforward institutional process just yet. We have asked Itel’s PR department for more details and once we receive that feedback we may update this commentary. If you know of a vendor that is executing this analysis credibly, please add them to the comments section below our Granite Countertop Insight Sheet.

We will update the Granite Countertop Insight Sheet with these two situationally relevant line items.

CABNCPCTGM  Countertop – Granite or Marble – per ind. material source

CABNCPCTQ      Countertop – quartz/eng. stone – per ind. material source

We have received several requests for more detailed line items within the Cabinetry Category. Many of you will be happy to see that there are 3 new CAB line items:

CABSPR            Add for pull out spice rack

CABTIPOUT      Add for tip out sink front tray

CABTRASHBN  Add for pull out trash bin

As expected, the Pricing Department continues to incorporate a myriad of new electronics cleaning line items, and there are a few new cleaning line items for mini-fridges and drum sets.

Those of you that write flooring claims will be happy to see that there are now several new stair tread/riser line items.

STRRISERT    Stair riser – treated softwood – up to 4′

STRRISERT>  Stair riser – treated softwood – greater than 4′ up to 8′

STRTRDT       Stair tread – treated softwood – up to 4′

STRTRDT>     Stair tread – treated softwood – greater than 4′ up to 8′

Other than that, there are 41 modifications to existing line items, but nothing revolutionary – just little tweaks required to continue to clarify and optimize the price list.

One change we found kind of humorous is that they deleted the floppy disk cleaning line item. It is reasonable to speculate that the line item below has not been intentionally incorporated into an estimate in quite some time.

“CELCMPS+ Clean computer software – disk – int. & ext.” has been deleted

March

Actionable Insight Pricelist Change Commentary

There were only 7 new line items introduced this month. This was a relatively quiet month as it relates to price list updates. One thing we did find interesting is that two roofing items now have specific line items that explicitly exclude waste (ice and water shield related). We speculate that this is in preparation for the Geomin Roof estimating tool that will be broadly available in the next ~4 months. To be clear, we are speculating here, however, our speculation is informed by the fact that we do know something about how Geomni Property/Roof Insights makes concessions for the users to define roofing waste on a percentage basis so keep an eye out for more RFG line items coming on board in the near-term. On the flip side of this, the Pricing Department choose to simultaneously update the additional item info associated with RFGIWS (and related line items), highlighting the fact that these items include a material component waste factor of 5%.

April

Actionable Insight Pricelist Change Commentary

57 new line items! April was a huge month for pricing updates and it was an even bigger month for Actionable Insights. There is nothing more rewarding than downloading the new price list and seeing the fruits of our labor expressed through material updates to the Xactimate price list. We want to extend a most sincere thank you to those of you that have submitted feedback via the “Request a New Line Item” portal. It is because of you that we remain well equipped to provide credible direction for the Xactware Pricing Department.

Do you guys cover your HVAC registers and returns before executing demo or repair activities? If so, you will be pumped to see the Pricing Department has add two new WTR line items for covering registers and returns.

  • WTRMASKV   Mask and cover register/air return
  • WTRMASKV>  Mask and cover register/air return – Large

These two new line items will force some updates to the Asbestos Abatement Insight Sheets in addition to the Negative Air Ducting Insight Sheet.  

Another welcome addition is that test plugs are now incorporated into the price list. When you pull a sink or toilet, now there is a line item that exist to help provide relief for plugging the p-trap or drain flange in a professional workmanship like manner.

  • PLMPLUG      Toilet/sink/drain plug – disposable – up to 4"

This new line item will force some updates to the Covered Plumbing Activities Insight Sheet.  

Those of you that work in high rise environment, you’re really going to appreciate these new “High Density Large Inner City” bid items.

  • FEEHDACC     High Density Large Inner City – Access (Bid Item)
  • FEEHDMST     High Density Large Inner City- Material staging (Bid Item)
  • FEEHDPARK    High Density Large Inner City- Parking- fees etc- Bid Item
  • FEEHDSEC     High Density Large Inner City – Security (Bid Item)

This fee line items exist to be applied in mitigation, packout/packback, abatement and repair scenarios.

If you pre-stain your lumber prior to “staining & finishing”, you will appreciate the 12 new pre-staining line items that range from pre-staining a balustrade to door slabs.

Keep an eye out for add for 3, 4 & 5-piece crown molding line items. These new add for line items include additional material and labor to install crown molding around cabinetry. These items should be used to add crown molding to the cabinets.

Another solid update relates to the moving van line items. They have not introduced new moving van line items; however, the line item descriptions and the additional item info have been updated. The length of the vans are now more thoughtfully curated. The descriptions now highlight the fact that the van lengths are relative to the approximate size of box/packing area (as opposed to the overarching length of the vehicle)

May

Actionable Insight Pricelist Change Commentary

May 2018 was another huge month for the Xactimate pricing department – 24 new line items!

Did you ever wonder why carriers were reluctant to pay for bags to dispose of contaminated items? We did, and as we explored this encumbrance to swift claims settlement we discovered that the reason some carriers were reluctant to reimburse for this activity was two-fold:

(a) Many WTR/HMR line items already include the cost associated with bag material, thus invoicing separately for (WTRBAG Plastic bag – used for contaminated items) is often not warranted

(b) Contractors have been known to deploy hefty style contractors bags, and subsequently invoice for (WTRBAG Plastic bag – used for contaminated items).

As it relates to the carrier’s aversion to pay for the bags twice, that seems reasonable. In addition, their reservations about paying for ~10mil abatement bags when only ~4-mil contractor bags are being consumed, also make sense.

Okay, having established what the issues are, what might the solutions include? How about a hot new line item?

Well, historically, that was the most accurate line item, (DMOBAG Plastic contractor debris bag). Now don’t get too excited water guys, there is a reason why this line item was added to DMO and not WTR – there is no need to work (DMOBAG Plastic contractor debris bag) into every dry down invoice moving forward. That said, at least there is a viable option that reasonably reimburses the Policyholder when the construction bags are required and their use is not otherwise satisfied by the associated line items. It is with this understanding and perspective that we are excited to see the new addition to the price list, (DMOBAG Plastic contractors debris bag).

How about that new Padlock/Disk Lock line item (CPSSTOPP Padlock/disk lock)? Those that are using mobile storage containers to relocate contents will be interested to see that there is now an opportunity to be institutionally reimbursed for the expense associated with the disk lock. It is interesting to note that the line item does not specify whether this is a rental fee or a one time use. We assume it is the latter, but perhaps this line item’s description could benefit from clarity here. If it is a one time fee, then technically speaking these locks would are owed to the Policyholder at the conclusion of the project.

Now, here is a nuanced line item: (DRYPATCHJ Tape joint for new to existing drywall – per LF). There are a lot of discussions about drywall providing suboptimal Policyholder reimbursement on small-scale drywall projects. This is most apparent when working with drywall line items that are calculated by sqft (i.e., the linear foot line items tend to be more favorable for the Policyholder). The sqft line items are the most accurate selection in a Class 3 environment (ceilings and walls floor to ceiling are affected). In order to address these overarching concerns and perceived shortages, the Pricing Department has added this line item. It is reasonable to assume that this line item is to be applied anytime new drywall is butted up against the existing drywall, to include covers and wall to ceiling joints. We think this will really help expedite claims settlement, the only downside we can identify is the fact that we now have to go back and update the associated drywall Insight Sheets…

You guys ever use ducting when setting up negative air systems? Well if so, you will be pumped to see the addition of (WTRDUCT6 Ducting – flexible – 6” round). Restorers were getting crossways with carriers by applying (HVCDCTF6 Ductwork – flexible – insulated – 6” round), which, for a number of reasons, is not an appropriate line item in a mitigation environment, e.g., wrong trade code, includes materials and labor, permanent installation concessions. Alternatively, the new (WTRDUCT6) is a materials only line item and is intended to be applied on a one-time use basis and more accurately reflect the cost to set-up this aspect of the negative air system. That said, restorers are encouraged to employ and invoice for lay-flat ducting (WTRDUCTLF Ducting lay-flat) as it relates to the positive air pressure aspect of a negative air system. To be clear, (WTRDUCT6 Ducting – flexible – 6” round) is to be employed and invoiced when a flexible yet rigid ductwork is required to complete the negative air aspect of the dry out assembly.

How about foam pipe insulation! The International Code Council and local building departments continue to call for an ever-increasing amount of foam pipe insulation. In order to acknowledge this, the Pricing Department has added a myriad of new foam pipe insulation line items. In our estimation, these line items reimburse the Policyholder adequately, and although they represent additional cost to the carriers, this activity and the associated cost will be offset by the reduced frequency of frozen pipe water losses in the coming decades.

You roofers out there will be happy to see the addition of (RFGVENTD Roof vent – dormer type – Metal). This line item was introduced in order to accurately reimburse the Policyholder for vents associated with dormers. It does not necessarily pay more than the existing roof vent line items, however, it helps clarify the acute application of the named vent assemblies. As Geomni continues to build out their automated roof estimating engine we expect to continue to see more granular line RFG line items introduced and adopted.

Now isn’t this interesting, the price list is going full circle now. Polyethylene vapor barriers are installed and subsequently invoiced for via (INSVIS Polyethylene vapor barrier). On the flip side, restorers can now invoice for their removal in a mitigation environment via (WTRCSV Remove polyethylene vapor barrier). We feel this is a prudent addition to the price list due to the fact that invoicing for INS line items in a mitigation environment is generally frowned upon. Historically, restorers were invoicing for (INSVIS Polyethylene vapor barrier) and setting the activity code to “-”. This approach is suboptimal for a number of reasons, to include insulation labor minimums being triggered in a mitigation environment. We believe this new WTR line item will help the carriers and contractors reach ZORA (Zone of Reasonable Agreement) faster, without adding significant cost our burden to either side of the claim.

Finally, let’s all observe a moment of silence for the Apple iPod Shuffle. After 10+ years of good service to the price list and the associated materially interested parties, the Pricing Department has chosen to retire (ELCMP3I  MP3 Player – iPod shuffle). The shuffle’s contribution to both our workout playlist and noble claims settlement were immeasurable.

Did we miss anything? Please submit feedback via the “Request a New Line Item” portal. There is proven power associated with speaking with one voice!

  • Worker Wage updated in all areas as applicable.
  • North Carolina passed new sales tax laws that will take effect January 2017. To comply with the state sales tax requirements as outlined by the state in their letter to contractors, users will need to determine which type of job they are estimating and choose the appropriate sales tax jurisdiction. For more information about determining which sales tax jurisdiction to use for a estimate, visit the North Carolina Department of Revenue website.
    The following jurisdictions were created for North Carolina:
    • Capital Improvement: Taxes material only. Users can select this jurisdiction if the job is considered a capital improvement to real property.
    • Repair, Maintenance, or Installation Services (Rpr Maint. Inst. Svc.): Taxes the total of the estimate. Users can select this jurisdiction if the job is considered a repair, maintenance, or installation service.
    • Mixed: Users can select this jurisdiction if the job involves both capital improvement and repair, maintenance, and installation service items. This allows users to apply a “material tax" to capital improvement items and a “total tax" to repair, maintenance, and installation service items within the same estimate by using job type functionality in Xactimate.
    • Contents Only: Users can select this jurisdiction if the estimate only contains contents replacement items.

Miscellaneous changes for the March 2016 price lists

  • North Carolina’s sales tax rules changed effective March 1, 2016.Xactware’s interpretation of the main sales tax changes is that if the job is considered “retail trade" and/or the contractor is considered a “retail contractor," the total gross receipts will be taxed. If the job is considered “repair, maintenance, and installation service" and the contractor doing the work is considered a “real property contractor" or provides repair, maintenance, and installation services where the contractor’s activities do not otherwise meet the definition of a “retail trade" the total gross receipts will not be taxed.If there are questions on sales tax laws we recommend contacting the North Carolina Department of Revenue (www.dor.state.nc.us). For North Carolina March 2016 price lists, standard sales tax jurisdictions-such as “6.75%"-were modified to include two job types: Repair, Maintenance, Installation Services (“Rpr Maint Inst Svc") and Retail Trade. When selected, “Rpr Maint Inst Svc" will only tax material on most items. “Retail Trade" should be selected if the activity needs to be taxed on the total. A new jurisdiction type-such as “6.75% Total Tax"-was also created, which the estimator can select if they know the estimate needs to be taxed on the total.
