Often times the measurements on insurance claims are not adequate to cover the roof replacement project entirely.
There may be items missing from the estimate you receive from your insurance claim estimate. Some of these missing components are key for the structural integrity of the roof installation.
To save money, there are many roofing contractors that will install the new roof with missing components which will ultimately void the warranty of the new roof installation.
There will always be storm chasers offering customers a so called “free roof” for their home. Don’t be fooled by this! Most of these out of town/not local roofing companies will install the new roof with missing components and low quality materials that will void the warranty on your new roof. Worst of all, if you start to get leaks a few years after the installation, those so called storm chasers are already in another state, taking advantage of other homeowners and you are left to fix the leak yourself. The roofing contractors that are not locally owned and operated will not be available to fix, repair or service the roof.
