Price List Update Commentary

NEW LINE ITEM ALERT!!!

June 2018 was an interesting month for the Xactimate Pricing Department – 9 new line items!

How about them Soffits (FRMSFT Add for interior/cabinet soffit framing)! We are super excited about this line item. This will really help claims professionals settle claims more quickly – prior to this line item, there was not a practical or institutional way to assign value to the additional labor and materials associated with building soffits! Well done guys!  

The Pricing Department continues to release cabinet modifier/detail line items, so those of you that do a lot of cabinet estimating take note, they have released 10+ modifiers this year.

The step charges for engineered wood flooring are an interesting and long awaited addition (FCWLAMTDT Engineered wood flooring – step charge (tread and riser)). Perhaps radial stair nosing will be next…

This notable modification probably requires that you’re an Xactimate Ninja to appreciate it, but default calculation for (FCVNFCP  Removed Default Calculation) was updated. Formerly, when working in the estimate items tab the default calculation was “F”, but the calculation is now applying a graphical sketch calculation eg., “FLR_RPL”. This imparts the notion that the Xactimate Estimate Writer is becoming increasingly dependant on Sketch.

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!
