The dollars and sense of CAT losses

With Kris Rzesnoski, CR, Phil Rosebrook, Russ Toering, Warner Cruz, David Carroll

Contractors are overwhelmed with the surge of CAT-related claims resulting from hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, wildfires, and more. To help restorers understand the financial impact of these catastrophes, we hosted a virtual roundtable with experts to show how these CAT events can impact restorers' cashflow negatively.

In this session, we share:

  • How to make decisions/commitments before arriving onsite
  • CAT-related protocols to determine cash flow
  • What kind of financial support you need to play the game
  • Real advice from contractors with real CAT experiences
  • How to partner during a CAT—sharing claims to spread risk
  • Xactimate vs T&M vs SF pricing
