Why Choose Normac

Normac specializes in insurance appraisals. In fact, it is the only type of appraisal we do. Most appraisers in Canada specialize in market value appraisals. All too often, this can lead to properties being under or over valued. Our team of experts have the knowledge, experience, and in-house costing database to produce reliable replacement cost reports. 


Our team is trained in actual construction costing, current
building codes and municipal bylaws, demolition and removal costs, condo/strata law, and
hard and soft costs.


Our industry-leading reports provide clear breakdowns of all demolition and removal costs, labour and professional fees, materials, required upgrades to current bylaws and building codes, taxes, and inflation.

Costing Database

Our proprietary software is based on actual costing information from architects, developers, and construction associations. Updates are made routinely according to regional published valuation services that consider local nuances.
