Solo Inspections

Settlment-Ready Inspection Reports for all roofing types, steep/tall, full exterior and optional interior with 24 hour Cycle Time

A Solo Inspection is performed by a Ladder Now Inspector for secure transmission to a Desk Adjuster. An appointment is scheduled with the homeowner and/or the homeowner’s contractor, subject to the standard operation procedure (SOP) of the carrier. We’ll provide a detailed findings report, summary, and labeled photos in 24 hours from the date of inspection with optional Xactimate or through our API integration with Symbility.

Our Solo Inspection reports level the playing field between less experienced and senior adjusters who are seeking to settle claims faster and more accurately the first time. Our cycle time is less than half that of other 3rd party providers.

Pricing is flat rate regardless of damage and based on an a la carte menu intended to provide the carrier with an accurate, economical and complete report pre-formatted for your settlement software system. Average report cost is $250.
