Common Questions

Answers to All Your Roofing Inquiries

What to Expect

Prompt, honest, educated information. Proven results. Simple process. Most inspections are usually completed 1 week from initial conversation. Our certified roof inspectors always knock first and take care and pride in each individual assessment. The inspection takes around 20 min. We leave you a “Roof Report Card” and pictures if damage is found. If damage is not found, we leave you with peace of mind.

Why not just call my insurance?

It is a good idea to have a pre-claim inspection by an independent inspector to see probability of successful compensation. Damage is subjective and should be reviewed by an impartial inspector.

I don’t see any damage…

Damage is hard to see from the ground. If a leak appears long after a storm the homeowner may be left responsible and not compensated by insurance.

What if I have damage?

  • Don’t worry…just initiate a call to your insurance carrier and pick a shingle color…we handle the rest.

What if my roof is old?

Damage is damage. Most roofs are covered for complete replacement regardless of age.

Will a Storm claim raise my rates?

No. This is a comprehensive claim considered to be an act of God/Nature. This is a Zero fault and will not raise individual policy holders rates. Rates will often increase based on your zip code whether you make a claim or not.

Why initiate the process now?

There is a statute of limitations and some liability issues if more damage occurs. Let your insurance cover liabilities.

What costs am I responsible for?

Only your deductible and upgrades. Often other collateral damage can off-set these costs.

How long will this process take?

Generally about 45 days or less which includes the initial inspection, the adjuster meeting, gathering “Scope of Loss”, en- dorsing check, picking materials, billing your insurance to help you recover depreciation, and receiving lien wavers and material warranties.

What Do I have to do?

Agree to a free inspection, and, if damage is found, call your insurance claim dept. with your policy#, choose shingle and upgrades and we handle the rest.
