Price List Commentary

Great news, Actionable Insighters! The pricing department has finally introduced some new line items for roof tarping. I think most of us can agree that it is challenging to invoice for board-up and tarping activities in the restoration ecosystem. Although that challenge has not been transcended absolutely, introducing TMPTARPS Tarp – poly – w/sandbags (regular hours, TMPTARPSA for after hours) was certainly a step in the right direction. The need for these two new line items is primarily driven by the frequency of clay/ceramic style roofing in the Southwest United States. The trouble is when tarping a Southwest style roof, you can’t very well nail into the clay/ceramic roofing with a furring strip. Thus, your only real viable option is tarping with sandbags – provided, of course, you’re keen on mitigating secondary damages to the roofing materials. One thing you have to be mindful of when tarping a roof with sandbags is that there is a lot of kinetic energy built up in those bags, and there exists a risk that they can roll off the roof. While useful in the context of un-nailable roofs, they pose a significant risk to tradesman, policyholders and claims professionals. Be mindful of this, especially in high wind environments. One other thing to keep in mind is that when executing a sandbag tarping arrangement, the size of the tarp needs to be enormous. It needs to go well over the source of the roof failure, drape over the top roof ridge and be sandbagged on the unaffected elevation.

In addition to the new tarping line items, the Pricing Department has also introduced a myriad of new roof flashing line items. Actionable Insight believes that the steady release of these granular roofing line items is in large part inspired by the new Geomni Image-To-Scope utility. We have been leveraging this tool in preparation for our Race With The Machines event and it is slick.
