Estimating Tip: Mitchell – Carpet/ insulation Pull Back vs Full R&I
Mitchell Collision Estimating Guide (CEG) replacement procedures may include “loosen and pullback carpet and/or insulation as required” as part of the welded panel replacement operation.
Recent DEG Inquiry 18042 states “pull back the carpet is simply to pull it back out of the way to facilitate the repair. Complete removal of the carpet is not included in floor replacement.”
Always reference footnotes if a specific procedure and/ or operation is listed. Footnotes take precedence over the CEG logic.
