Six Points of Estimating Home Damage
Course 31

About the course

The six points of estimation are an excellent way to organize a repair estimate. These points also help the estimator make sure nothing was missed and all issues are being considered. The lesson begins with a discussion of the six points: perspective, organization, identification, number, technique and supporting events. Each of the six points is covered in detail and examples of each are discussed. Proper diagramming by hand on site is reviewed and the information that should be included on a hand-drawn diagram is shown. Safety issues are covered next including structural stability concerns, hazardous debris, and live electrical wires. The lesson concludes with a discussion of how the damage offers clues about what happened and how repairs will need to be made.
