Insurance adjusters HELP!

We really all work together. I think most adjusters I meet feel that way. If we were not calling, especially in the slow times, they would not have work either.
It seems every adjuster says something different. Hail seems to be the hardest to get approved. It all seems to be perception. What some say is hail, others say is not.
Is there anything we can do as roofers to make your job easier?
Should we chalk off what we see first? Do you prefer an estimate?
Can you actually accept our estimate?
THE MOST IMPORTANT, I hear roofers say THEY call the price and the insurance company pays that. Do you have to stick to xactimate?
Any tips you can give us? Prices keep going up, but I don’t see Insurance quotes changing.

Xactimate lets you put your own prices in it.
