Demand Surge


Demand Surge is the increase in prices for labor and materials following a catastrophe, as contractors take advantage of the increase in demand for repairs and replacement construction.

The Demand Surge function allows you to set defaults for Demand Surge. You can also create custom Demand Surge curves  specific to a geographic region. When you create a custom curve, you can paste data into the grid, revert to the last saved version, and clear the grid. Currency is established in Currency Rate Settings.

Set loss defaults for demand surge in the Demand Surge pane.
