RiskMeter.com to Unveil BuildFax’s Roof Age Reports via Webcast Thursday, August 16th
RiskMeter.com to unveil BuildFax’s roof age reports and demonstrate how P&C underwriters and agents can optimize discounts & credits and reduce claims
Online PR News – 11-August-2012 –On Thursday, August 16, 2012 at 2:00 p.m. EDT, RiskMeter Online, a provider of real-time natural hazard risk reports, will unveil an enhanced offering from BuildFax, the creator of the first and only database of historical building permit data. This public webcast for Property & Casualty insurance professionals will demonstrate how BuildFax’s roof age information can reduce claims, as well as optimize discounts and credits.
Roof age is a significant underwriting factor for many carriers, yet it’s time consuming and expensive to verify. This partnership is expected to streamline the underwriting process for RiskMeter users by quickly spotting red flags when it comes to roof information provided directly by an agent or applicant. BuildFax has found that upwards of 45% of the roof ages currently on file for carries are typically miscalculated by 1 or more years.
“Our number one priority is to put the latest data, reports and tools at our users fingertips,” says Dan Munson, Founder, RiskMeter Online. “BuildFax has collected and processed the original building permit data to ensure underwriters are getting the correct information. Although roofs may look 5-10 years old, underwriters will often be surprised to learn through the BuildFax database that construction records reveal they are closer to 15-20 years old.”
“Recently, carriers have been telling me that they are losing 15 cents, 20 cents and more on every premium dollar to roof related claims,” says Holly Tachovsky, President of BuildFax. “In response, RiskMeter and BuildFax are teaming up to help carriers get smarter about the roof risk in their book of business and the new roofs they are underwriting. For example, the combination of BuildFax’s roof related construction dates and details and RiskMeter’s natural hazard risk reports will enable carriers to (1) more efficiently review their existing book of business by easily identifying properties with older roofs, and (2) quickly determine underwriting eligibility with factors like roof year and wind mitigation.”
