Using Matterport to Document Loss and Damage
Today, we’re going to take a second look at how Matterport can help contractors and adjusters document damage and loss on restoration jobs. In this video, we’re going to look at the tool inside an actual residence.
As we navigate to the page, you’ll see each location or job has a unique public web address. This gives people with access to the link, the ability to view scans easily. After you press play, it takes you into the space, first from a zoomed-out view, and then finally to the classic room view.
The circles, on the floor and throughout the home, represent different positions the viewer can move. These circles help the viewer navigate easily so they can capture what they need in the space. And because this home has two floors, you can move up and down the stairs to get a complete view of the interior.
In the bottom left-hand corner, you’ll see a couple of different viewing options.
– Dollhouse View
– Floorplan View
– Floor Selector
– Measurement Mode
Additional features are also available, including image labeling and tagging to highlight rooms and other specific areas of interest and a floor plan generator that can be used in programs like Xactimate.
We use the tool as an extra level of accountability, so contractors and adjusters have another easy way to verify inventories from pack-outs. If you have questions about Matterport please leave them below.

How Restoration Contractors can Better Support Adjusters With Matterport
It’s no secret that COVID-19 has changed the way we all work. Today, adjusters are traveling to fewer jobs, which means more claims are being completed in the office. That means it’s up to teams in the field to provide them with the information they need to do their jobs well.
One of the easiest ways to send information quickly and efficiently is through 3D image tools like Matterport. We use this tool on every job. It helps us capture and share high quality 3D images. And helps to ensure accurate, transparent, and fair documentation throughout our entire process.
You can see the program gives the viewer the option to move, zoom, and even measure any object inside the image. We can also add notes to highlight important information for contractors and adjusters.
The best part is it’s helped us make our process even more transparent. Adjusters can compare pack-out inventories to what they observe in Matterport. It puts them in control, giving them the ability to verify information without ever leaving their office. It’s a win-win.
