New Xactimate Roofing Line Items


#1

For those who use Xactimate, there are several relatively new line items you might be interested in.

dstew actually brought this first one to my attention I believe.

FELTL15 Roofing felt - 15 lb. - 4/12 and under This is to satisfy code requirements for a double layer of underlayment for slopes with pitch 4:12 and under.

Up until a couple of months ago, there was one line item to detach and reset a satellite dish which I believe also had the cost of retuning built into it. This is now two line items.

ELSDISHA Digital satellite system - alignment and calibration only

ELSDISHRS Digital satellite system - Detach & reset

Finally, there are line multiple line items to replace “eyebrows” and “eyebrow strips” although Xactimate has formal terms for them. I won’t type all of them but they are listed under RFG as Gable Cornice Returns. They have them for single and two story as well as for 3 tab and laminated. They also cover Gable cornice strips for 3 tab and laminated, one and two story. I’ll type out one example.

RFGGCR240 Gable cornice return - 3 tab

We have charged for eyebrows and eyebrow strips for some time now, get paid for them 90% of the time or more but often have to argue about it. I would hope having these line items formally part of Xactimate may now make that easier.

I see they are underpriced like everything else in Xactimate.

Not sure if this one is new but it is HUGE and gets passed by adjusters all the time. Detach & Reset Meter mast for overhead power - 2" conduit. (Extra 240-500 in my area)
A lot of times they pay for your Menards or Lowes fascia metal but if you supplement for custom bent fascia it can add an extra $9/LF!
