Mastering the Art of Quality Photos: Tips for Efficient Approval with HOMEE

by Homee Team - Apr 17, 2024 10:32:19 AM

In estimate preparation, providing comprehensive and high-quality photos is paramount for a smooth approval process with HOMEE Quality Support and Carrier Adjusters. Insufficient or unclear photos can lead to delays and even necessitate return trips to the loss site, disrupting efficiency and causing frustration for all parties involved. In this blog post, we'll explore essential tips for success to ensure that your photo submissions meet the standards required for swift approval. 

Tips for Success: 

  • Quality Over Quantity: When capturing photos for your estimate, remember that quality outweighs quantity. Focus on capturing clear and detailed images that effectively illustrate the damage or materials in question. Blurry or thumbnail images may not provide the necessary support and could result in delays. 
  • Close-Up and Overview Shots: Strike a balance between close-up shots to showcase damage and material types and overview photos to provide context in the layout of the room, area, slope, or elevation. Both perspectives are crucial for a comprehensive understanding of the scope of work. 
  • Proper Labeling: Ensure that all photos are labeled according to the room, area, slope, or elevation being depicted. Consistent labeling that corresponds with the names used in the estimate and sketch facilitates clarity and organization, streamlining the approval process. 
  • Continuous Material Flow: In cases where affected materials flow continuously into unaffected rooms, include photos that illustrate these transitions. Providing a clear visual understanding of the extent of the damage ensures accuracy in assessment and estimation. 
  • Capture Key Locations: Include photos of the front of the loss site and the source of the loss to provide essential context and documentation.  
  • Mitigation Assignments: Both pre-demo and post-demo photos are necessary to capture loss related damages and demolition work completed. 
  • Hail Losses: Document the damage with 10' by 10' test squares on each directional slope to accurately assess the extent of the impact.  
  • Third-Party Photography: While third-party photography tools like Matterport may be utilized, ensure that .jpg photos or .pdf photo sheets are still provided as required. 

Mastering the art of quality photos is key to ensuring efficient resolution of the estimate review process with HOMEE and expediting the approval process with Carrier Adjusters. By adhering to these essential tips for success, HOMEE Pros can minimize delays, enhance accuracy, and streamline communication with Quality Support and Carrier Adjusters.
