In this article, we cover how to import HOVER property measurements, 3D models, photos, and digital sketches into Xactimate.

Before you start


The HOVER job you would like to import into Xactimate must be fully processed. Additionally, before you can import the data, you must submit a data request in Xactimate (follow the steps here).

Once you receive an email from HOVER notifying you the job is complete, you can begin the importing process.

Edit the project


Once you receive a notification that your HOVER job is ready to be imported, go back into the Xactimate projects page.

  • Highlight your project and click the pencil icon

Import the data


Once you click on the pencil icon, you’ll see the estimator tool menu on the left side of the screen.

  • Under “Estimate” choose the “Sketch” tab and click the import icon (roof sketch image)

  • You’ll see the HOVER measurement data available to pull in. Click import

  • The HOVER 2D/3D sketch and measurements will import into your working estimate

Additionally, you can click on the “Photos” tab to see all the imported photos in one place (including damage and annotated photos, if applicable) and the "Documents" tab for the measurement file(s).
