Documenting damage is critical to assessing damage and scoping restoration and remediation projects accurately. Len Digiacomo (owner) explained that Mammoth Restoration:
In the past, completing work onsite was the most accurate method of estimating losses. Like most restoration companies in the industry, Mammoth Restoration's estimators visited homes, estimated losses and documented conditions with 2D photos and manual measurements.
Prior to using Matterport, it took 2-3 days on average after completing site visits to record estimates. Adjusters, contractors, and homeowners were sometimes frustrated with the lengthy process. Mammoth Restoration is leading the industry by taking a new step in this critical source of documentation; combining 3D capture with the help of Matterport.
Traditionally, restoration companies scoped projects by sending a technician to photograph and measure homes or businesses — a process that required more than one visit. For Mammoth Restoration, 3D capture transformed the workflow, eliminating the need for multiple visits.
The investment in Matterport has been a rather efficient solution, enabling the company to provide greater transparency of site conditions to insurance company adjusters, third-party claims administrators and property owners.
Mammoth Restoration uses 3D capture to document every project, beginning with a pre-mitigation scan.
When Mammoth Restoration receives a call from a customer saying their home or business is damaged, we capture the space with the Matterport Pro2 camera, upload the scan to the Matterport Cloud, and use the 3D model to assess the damage, scope the work, and capture measurements.
Digiacomo credits the Matterport Cloud by giving Mammoth Restoration the ability to annotate mitigation strategies and milestones for every project, addressing questions that property owners and adjusters may ask such as:
