15 Replies and 15512 Views Be a Better Adjuster; Take Better Photos  15512  15 Started by  Jud G. I am primarily a field adjuster, but have worked a few stints inside to improve my field skills and see what other adjusters do to get files closed.  Taking photos is one of those simple tasks that is very easy to do poorly and many examiners (sadly) have gotten to the point where they only review photos and don't even read reports anymore (there are numerous reasons for this, but a separate forum/topic should address those issues). The biggest issues are not with the failure to use the bu...

0 Replies and 1760 Views Gas Station Canopy  1760  0 Started by  tishgold Does anyone have specific experience in writing the line items for an old gas station canopy  A tractor-trailer operator thought he could cut the red light at the corner and drove through the gas station lot without clearing the canopy over a pump.  Damage looks cosmetic only, not structural.  Better yet, if you have an actual .esx file you can share that'd be quite helpful.  I have photos available.  Thanks.

4 Replies and 24356 Views Discontinued Shingles  24356  4 Started by  DStin214 I'm sure many of you have come across this (or will) at some point in your career.  This may help some of the newer guys out there when determining repair vs. replacement for a risk roof.  There are so many different discontinued shingles out there that it would be too difficult for any single person to list.  In your travels, what are the most common types of shingles that have been discontinued that you have noticed  For me, it would be: Owens Corning - Prominence ...

26 Replies and 32712 Views Thermopane windows with blown seals  32712  26 Started by  Goldust
(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
here is a topic that should generate some interest. In the course of my adjusting career I have many times ran into insureds claiming that their thermopane windows developed leaks from the named windstorm. Mainly you will see fogged over windows and in most cases if you look closely you may see the internal seal bulged out of its original position. &160;I would like to hear how most of you make a decision on coverage for these windows and how you handle it by repair or by replacement. Every ca...
