I am an independent insurance agent insuring all types of commercial property and have been doing business with Expert Inspectors Incorporated of Ormond Beach Florida (as) our main source for Windstorm and Hailstorm coverage in Florida. Citizens Property Insurance Corporation has been requiring one hundred percent replacement cost appraisals for all new business as of 2004 when Florida experienced four hurricanes in a matter of between three and four weeks. Prior to that as an independent insurance agent appraisals were never required but after the 2004 hurricanes, thousands of claims were settled and it was evident that the vast majority of property owners were underinsured and in many cases the construction was not accurate. Anytime I call for a price and availability on a particular property I get it immediately as well as from one to three different days and times the appraiser is available. I also receive an emailed copy of the appraisal and the client is also sent one by regular mail with colored photos. One time as a favor the company stopped by a property I was working on to verify the construction at no charge. The owner offered to do it just because he happened to be in that immediate area on a particular day and as a result I wrote the account. They are also responsible for me writing many other accounts because of their availability, efficiency, and professionalism.

We hired a local appraisal company to conduct a ‘Replacement Cost Valuation’ on our resort. It took them over 3 weeks, but we got the report and forwarded it to our insurance company. It was immediately returned because it was not the type of report that was required for insurance. The appraisal company said that what they gave us was the ‘correct’ way to do the report. Our insurance agent, Larry Hagar, contacted Expert Inspectors for us to do the valuation the correct way. They came out on the property, did the inspection and turned the report around in less than a week. It was what the insurance company wanted, and their services were much cheaper than the first company.

We are a 40 building apartment community located in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. The insurance carrier that was covering our buildings increased our rates dramatically upon renewal. Our Agent reviewed what they had for our coverage limits and recommended that we have an insurance valuation done to determine what the amount should actually be to insure the complex.
When we received the report, it turned out that the buildings were actually insured for almost 20% more than they should have been. By changing the amount of coverage to the correct amount, the insurance premium dropped by over $17,000 per year.
Having the insurance replacement valuation done was well worth the investment. We saved many times the cost in just the first year. It is good to know that we are no longer paying out more money than we need to and now have the correct amount of insurance coverage.

One of the more established RCV production valuation companies we worked with recently had under-insured one of our insured’s scheduled property by almost 50 percent than what it should have been. Since we as agents rely on these reports for accurate insurance coverage limits, it came as a shock when our insured realized a $200,000 under-insured structure loss. Suffice to say accurate replacement cost valuations are a critical complement to insurance. Sticking with those firms (Expert Inspectors) that take the time in doing it right and who know the codes is part of what every decision maker should demand to insure their property adequately.

We Would highly recommend Expert Inspectors!
In the performance of our inspection, it was discovered that our insurance provider had grossly miscalculated the value of our condominium. This impacted us financially in a very negative manner. It was due to Dave’s attention to detail in asking questions regarding our current policy that this situation came to light.
Expert Inspectors has helped in saving our Association THOUSANDS of dollars!!
