My insurance agency says the roof is fine. Insurance agencies are in business to make money, and if they can put off making needed repairs, they will. If you see the other homes on your street all need new roofs, your house may very well need one, too. Make sure you get an independent inspection of your own, and don’t just rely on the word of a single insurance adjuster to protect your most valuable investment. The best way to get a fair and accurate idea of the condition of your roof, the damage the storm caused, and what the best course of action to take next is to get a professional evaluation of your roof after the storm. Our certified roof inspectors will inspect your roof and document the findings free of charge for you. Just contact us to schedule your free roof inspection.
The salesman says I have to sign papers right now to lock in a price. Unscrupulous and unlicensed agencies swarm any area that has been hard hit by hail or other storms. While you may very well need a roof replacement, you don’t have to be pressured into one. Make sure the contractor you choose is actually licensed and/or certified to work in your area and has a stable, solid existence in your community before making a decision about your roof. Here is how to find a reliable roofing contractor.
No one else on the block needed a new roof. Hailstorms and the damage they cause are unpredictable and variable, so you may need repairs or a whole new roof while the house right next door escapes totally unscathed. Protect your home and investment by having a pro take a look after a storm. If you do happen to see roofing work going on in your neighborhood, there is a good chance that your home will need to be seen by a professional, as well.
We have shingles, and only one looks damaged. Even if only a single shingle looks damaged, there could be significant underlying damage to your roof. That shingle could also let condensation into your home, damaging your roof's integrity and raising your heating and cooling costs, too. A single damaged shingle today can be a flood, damaged ceiling or roof collapse in a year or two, so be safe and have your roof checked.
My insurance agent says we can wait a while. Make sure to communicate these matters with your insurance company and not your agent. Even if your insurer does not have a statute of limitations on the repair, you may be insured for actual cash value only. As your roof and home age, your insurance company will have to pay less money to have it fixed – in many cases just the actual value of your old roof, not the true replacement cost of a new one. Again, time is not on your side in this scenario, so if you are told to wait a while, you should seek another objective opinion on your roof damage.
If your home has been damaged by hail or bad weather and you’ve been getting the runaround by your insurance agency, contact us for an objective appraisal of your damage and an estimate of the true cost to repair or replace your roof. Your home is your biggest asset, and we’re here to help you protect every inch of it, including your roof.
