Plan Your New Roof With A GAF Master Elite® Roofer

When you need a roof repair, roof replacement or a new roof installation, how do you know who to trust? This can be tricky with so many companies in each region and quite a few opportunists as well. One of the best ways to tell if a roofing company is reputable is by the professional certifications they have earned, notably the GAF Master Elite Roofing certification.

Over the past few years we have seen plenty of horrific situations that opportunistic “local roofers” have put homeowners into because they were either trying to scam them or they had bitten off more than they could chew. Whether installing a roof that wasn’t up to code, causing it to leak, or tearing a roof off and then failing to ever show up again to finish the job. (Yes, these situations really do happen!)

Roofing Certifications by GAF

Also, you must have a proven reputation demonstrated by outstanding reviews. And you must be registered with the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and carry a high rating (A+). 

Benefits of Working With a Master Elite Roofer

A properly installed roof by GAF certified roofers means that we use only the highest quality shingles for your roof. It also means that your roof is installed properly, in accordance with GAF specifications and State of Ohio regulations and any local regulations. 

Lastly, when you work with a Master Elite Roofer you are eligible for the best warranties in the industry. Firstly, a workmanship warranty to cover the installation of your roofing system. Secondly, a materials warranty to protect you against any defects in any your roofing system materials.

Storm Damaged Roofs in Ashland County

Here is a great example of the damage severe wind storms can cause to your homes roof. These storm damaged roofs in Ashland County got hammered for a full day with high winds causing extensive roof damage across the region.

We were called out to do emergency roofers repairs and emergency tarping to quite a few areas. In a situation like this one pictured, we were able to respond quickly (that very evening). Each of the calls we received that day were from homeowners who had noticed shingles in their yards. Over the next week we were able to respond to many roof repair calls to our office with similar roof damage. Most importantly, many of the roof inspections we were called out for qualified for new roof replacements paid for by insurance. 

Confirmed Storm Damage in Ashland

Emergency storm damage roof repair at night.

We identified and confirmed that there was severe storm damage to these roofs. Upon arriving to most roofing repair calls, we not only confirmed and documented that there were downed shingles in the homeowners yards, but also that there were massive sections of missing shingles on their roofs! Most of these patches were very large in size and located on numerous areas of their roofs.

Many of the homeowners were very surprised when they realized the extensive damage caused to their roof from one wind storm. Also, the sheer size of the sections of missing shingles was mind-blowing in a few cases. Some of these homes even had entire sections of their vinyl siding torn off by the high winds. 

Emergency Tarping Roof

After identifying and documenting the damage with the homeowner, our trained roofers did what they do best and got to work. Our roofers went back onto the roof and cover each section of the roof with emergency tarps. (Our emergency tarping services are done as soon as possible to prevent any additional damage to the home.)

Protection from the harsh elements is hugely important. For any roofers, preventing additional damage to the sheathing on your roof and to the interior of your home should be a priority. This is also important for insurance claim reasons. Homeowners need to take the necessary steps to prevent further water damage once they realize they have storm damage to their roof. 

[When Do You Need New Roof Sheathing?]

After emergency tarping this particular roof, we then proceed with the process of putting together their estimate so they could process their insurance claim. This customers claim was approved very quickly and we coached them on each step in the claim process about what to expect. Their home is now on the fast track to being restored to its proper condition and it will be paid for by their insurance.

When Do You Need New Roof Sheathing?

When you have an undetected leak on your roof for a prolonged period of time you may have to replace your sheathing. This is because vulnerable shingles that appear to be undamaged to the eye, are actually damaged because of severe storms or improper roof installation.

The sheathing under your roof, also referred to as the deck, is the wood support that makes up the base of your roof. It is the sheathing that all of your shingles are nailed to. When your roof shingles are damaged, rain water can make its way underneath your roofing system and get trapped between the shingles and the wood. Once trapped, the water will rot the wood beneath your shingles and your roofing system. Over time, your sheathing will rot and create even easier paths for water to make it into your home.

Damaged Roof Sheathing

The sheathing on your roof is made of oriented strand board (OSB) or plywood. Since they are both wood products, they are susceptible to wood rot. In older homes, long wood boards were used as the decking that your shingles are nailed to. Again, all of these boards are susceptible to wood rot if moisture and rain water makes it way underneath the shingles. Water damaged sheathing can cause additional problems for your home. 

Water Damaged Sheathing

Constant leaking onto your sheathing can occur due to damaged shingles. Lifted up shingles caused by storms and improper installation (like nails going all the way through the shingles) can both cause pathways for water to get underneath your shingles. Oftentimes, when this situation occurs it is not immediately noticeable that your roof is leaking. It could takes months, even years, for damage to be noticeable on the interior of your home. This is especially true if the water is trapped between the sheathing and your shingles. 

Ceiling damage inside your home is an obvious symptom of a roof leak. What isn’t obvious is how long that roof leak has been occurring and the extent of the damage the leak has caused. It is possible that the water finally made its way down to your ceiling because it took some time to rot out your sheathing. Rain water repeatedly making its way underneath your shingles and roofing system, and sitting for prolonged periods (without drying) will rot the sheathing wood.

Molded Sheathing

First, water damaged roof sheathing can lead to mold on the underside of the sheathing wood. When the rain water gets through your shingles and flashing it just sits there. There is no guarantee it will dry out and not cause additional damage, thereby causing mold. Which opens the door for the second problem, prolonged leaks can lead to water getting into the walls of your home, if not immediately repaired, where mold will grow. 

Mold needs to be dealt with immediately. Any roof sheathing with mold on it needs to be replaced as soon as possible. Moldy wood in your home is not safe for you and your family. And until the roof leak is repaired, and sheathing replaced, additional rain water will keep making its way into your home causing further, and more costly damage. 

Sagging Roof

A sagging roof is evidence of damaged sheathing underneath. If you notice from the ground that your roof is sagging, contact a qualified roofing professional immediately. A sagging roof can be dangerous because you don’t know how bad it is or where the weaknesses are. Entire sections of the roof could be completely rotted out. 

Roof Sheathing Installation

Once your roof is diagnosed and any leaks are identified, it is hugely important to hire a qualified roofing company to repair your roof damage properly and bring your home up to code. (Referring to the Ohio Revised Code regulations for roofing installation.) A lot of “preferred contractors” and shoddy roofers don’t install sheathing correctly, or even realize that it needs to be replaced, so be certain you hire roofers you can verify are knowledgeable about the process and the necessary regulations.

Lastly, it is important to always keep in mind you need proper roof installation to avoid any problems with your manufacturer’s warranty. An improperly installed roof may void the warranty. Also, if you have a storm damage claim, your insurance company may deny your claim because your roof was not installed in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code

Absolute Assurance Restorations is one of the top rated Mansfield roofing companies. We install all types of roofs including shingles, slate roofing, metal roofing, rubber and flat roofs. Also, we install vinyl siding, aluminum siding, windows, gutters and gutter guards. We have Google 5-Star Reviews and Facebook Reviews.

Why You Need Proper Roof Installation for Storm Damage Claims

When you have storm damage you will need to a choose a roofer who knows how to fight for you. At Absolute Assurance Restorations, a top rated Mansfield roofing company, our roofers are highly trained and they know how to fight for you to get legitimate storm damage covered.

Oftentimes, an insurance company is motivated to pay to have your roof and siding repaired and move on, regardless of whether some corners need to be cut to cover the costs of the repairs. Many less experienced and shoddy roofers don’t speak up and try to get all of the damaged parts of your home covered. But when an experienced storm damage restoration company is doing the work, we push to be certain ALL damages are covered and that your roof is installed in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code regulations. In other words, when your roof is damaged we don’t cut corners, your roof will be installed correctly and up to code.

Proper Roof Installation

Mansfield roofers roof replacement and vinyl siding installation and chimney flashing on home

When a roof is installed, no matter if the homeowner or the insurance company is paying for it, it has to be installed correctly. But why? Aside from the obvious answer, an improper roof installation can cause your insurance company to deny a future storm damage claim. So if a roofer installs your roof and cuts corners any future storm claims can be denied because of the shoddy installation. And yes, an insurance company is within their rights to deny a claim if a roof wasn’t installed properly.

How do I protect myself against a shoddy roof installation?

Roofing Contractor Reviews

First, you can protect yourself from choosing a bad roofing company by always checking their online Facebook and Google reviews. Online reviews can help paint a solid picture of the type of workmanship and follow-up a particular roofing company offers. A lack of reviews or consistently bad reviews sh

Roofing Certifications

Second, check if they are a certified roofing company with a shingle manufacturer. For example, we have a Master Elite certification from GAF. This means that we have been trained by GAF to install their roofs properly and in accordance with the local regulations. And when we do a roof replacement, you will know that it is installed correctly and that we stand behind our work and an insurance company will know that it was installed properly upon inspection.

Roofers License and Insurance 

Lastly, check your roofers insurance and licensing credentials. Be certain they carry workman’s compensation insurance in case any on-the-job accidents occur. And check their general licensing to be certain they are locally licensed and have demonstrated a general workmanship quality.

Following these three basic tips will reduce the likelihood you ever experience a future roofing installation disaster. Prevention here is key and keep in mind that many people do not know to follow these basic steps, which opens them up to bad outcomes with their roof. We have witnessed many nightmarish scenarios involving shoddy roofing companies.

We also offer top rated siding installation, gutter installation and windows. Our roofing services includes shingles, metal roofing, slate roofing, rubber and flat roofs.

Simple Roof Replacement Quickly Paid For by Insurance

With much of the region getting little rain over the past two months, quite a few homeowners had no idea they had storm damage. After the recent rains, those same homeowners sought to get their roofs repaired very quickly. One of them reached out to us by filling out one of our lead forms on our website. They mentioned they needed a roof inspection for a roof leak repair. We responded back to them shortly after their submission and scheduled a time for us to do a roof inspection on their home, at their convenience.

Storm Damage Roof Inspection

After we inspected their roof, we confirmed the source of their roof leak. However, in addition to the leak, we also revealed to them the storm damage we had discovered on multiple sides of their roof. Their shingles were curled upward in certain parts of the roof and “lifted up” in multiple other areas.

I explained to them their options and demonstrated that they had extensive wind damage. They agreed to use us as their roofing company of choice and had us set in motion our storm damage process. We provided them with a general estimate and they contacted their insurance with it. Less than a week later, their insurance company met at their home and we were there also (at the homeowner’s request) and their insurance adjuster verified all of the documented wind damage. Later, the insurance company approved all of the damage and told them they qualified for a new roof replacement.

New Roof Installation

We scheduled with the homeowner the best time to do their roof replacement. In addition to replacing their roof, they wanted to install some new sections of gutters because they were pretty aged and beat up. They picked the style of shingles they wanted for their home and we ordered all of the necessary materials.

We installed an entire roofing system with leak barriers, roof deck protection, proper attic ventilation, heavy-duty lifetime shingles and ridge caps. (Their roof is warrantied by the manufacturer and comes with our workmanship guarantee.) We did the roof tear-off and new roof installation in the same day and cleaned up the entire yard afterward. Their new roof looks great!

One Week Turnaround Time

To sum up, firstly we discovered and documented legitimate storm damage on their roof. Secondly, days later it was verified by their insurance company. Thirdly, later that same day the insurance company approved the claim. Next, the homeowner selected the shingle style and color, and decided to have us do some additional work at the same time. Then we scheduled the roof installation for two days later (pending weather). Lastly, we installed the new roof, inspected it, and cleaned up afterwards. From start to finish this process took one week! 

Mostly, this roofing claim was pretty simple and straightforward. But it isn’t always this easy, getting a new roof paid for by insurance because of storm damage can sometimes take extra time because of the back and forth with the insurance company. However, it is important for every homeowner to know that when you qualify for a claim, Absolute Assurance Restorations will be certain to fight on your behalf to make sure that your roof repair or new roof replacement is done properly and installed in accordance with the regulations in the Ohio Revised Code.

Absolute Assurance Restorations is certified and licensed for roofing in Mansfield. We are top rated in roofing, vinyl siding installers, windows and skylight replacement. Also, as a gutter company, we are top rated as well. Contact us for a free estimate, (419) 709-7223.

Hire Local Roofers? Check Their Qualifications First

As one of the top rated roofers in Mansfield we are often called to fix a roof that was previously put on by another “local roofer”. Typically, this means the homeowner has a bad leak and their home is vulnerable due to shoddy installation by another company.

Affordable Roofing Gone Bad

We had another one of these recently. It involved a slick sounding roofer who presented himself as an experienced roofer who was capable of handling a very large roofing project. Unfortunately, he couldn’t handle it and he didn’t. After agreeing to a very low price to replace someone’s roof, this roofer ended up abandoning the project after some of the work had already been started. He had the old roof torn off and then stopped working on the home and never came back. He left their home in a very vulnerable state and created a situation that caused severe damage.

(As a homeowner, it is important to note that if you hire a roofer who starts a project, then abandons the project, your insurance is not likely to cover the cost of any damages caused by harsh weather while your roof, siding and windows are in an unfinished state.)

Immediately after this sequence of events, the homeowner contacted us and we were on the scene quickly to see how we could help remedy this dreadful situation. We worked up an estimate, covered the roof with tarps, and scheduled a roof installation within days. (A special “thank you” to a kind homeowner who was more than willing to reschedule her roof installation to help out this homeowner.) 

Hire Qualified Roofing Contractors

roofers near me Mansfield home with shingle roof and vinyl siding

Ultimately, we were able to remedy this situation quickly by doing the new roof installation and preventing any additional damage to the home. However, the frustration for this homeowner is not over because she had already paid that bad contractor for work he never did (she had advanced him about half the money for the job). I sincerely hope she will be able to get her money back. 

To prevent such a situation from occurring in the future, always research the contractor you are wanting to hire. Check their company credentials, license and insurance. Also, make sure they are qualified to handle the type of job you need done, check for certifications (for example, Absolute Assurance Restorations is certified to install roofs by shingle manufacturers GAF and Certainteed). Then check for Better Business Bureau registration and any unresolved complaints. In addition, check their references and verify if they have undertaken additional projects like yours. 

Lastly, check all of their online reviews. Most importantly, check their Google and Facebook reviews and see if other customers are satisfied with their work.

Storm Damage Discovered During Routine Inspection by Roofers

It is an eye-opening experience when a homeowner contacts us to get a routine roof inspection for a leak and we inform them we discovered storm damage during this routine inspection. This particular homeowner, we’ll call him Mr. Smith, simply wanted a roof inspection by top rated roofers in Mansfield, Ohio

Mr Smith believed it was time for a new roof shortly after he noticed water damage in his ceiling. He contacted us to get an estimate for a new roof since he believed that his was getting pretty old. Most shingle roofs last between 25 and 30 years and he figured his had served its useful life. We sent one of our experienced roofers to do an inspection before Mr. Smith purchased a new roof. Oftentimes, when you have ceiling damage caused by a roof leak you can get by with a simple roof repair.

Storm Damage Roof Inspection

storm damage roof inspection brick home with shingle roof

Upon arriving at the home, our roofer did a thorough inspection of the roof in search of the leak. After finishing the inspection, our roofer informed them (the homeowners) that their roof actually had severe storm damage caused by harsh winds. In addition, he showed them the detailed pictures of the damage and informed that most often this type of damage was covered as storm damage under most homeowner’s insurance policies.

Our roofer left the information with the homeowner and they contacted their insurance company about the damage. After doing their due diligence, the insurance company informed the homeowner that their roof damage qualified as wind damage and they would cover the damage, minus their deductible. Along with photos of the damages we also provided consultation for them so that there wouldn’t be any confusion during their back and forth with their insurance company.

Roof Replacement Approved on a Claim

Shortly after the insurance company gave the green-light to replace their roof, we installed their new roofing system in one day. Needless to say, they were very happy to get their new roof. In addition, they were super excited to have their roof paid for by their insurance simply because storm damage was discovered during a routine inspection. Talk about a win-win!

When a Simple Leak Becomes a New Roof

Absolute Assurance Restorations is one of the top rated roofing companies in Mansfield, Ohio. Without a doubt, we provide top level service when assisting customers to correctly identify roof and siding damage caused by fierce storms. In addition, we work with our customers to inform them of the best course of action when we do find storm damage to their home. Never should a homeowner have to go at it alone when trying to navigate the complex process of handling a storm claim. 

roofers mansfield ohio home with new shingle roof and brick siding

A recent customer of ours called us out for a typical leak in their roof and what seemed like a simple leak became a new roof. They just happened to be in an area that had experienced severe hail storm. Regardless, this particular customer was out of town and uncertain of how severe the storm had been, they simply noticed a small water spot on their ceiling. If anything, it just seemed like a simple repair. Nevertheless, they called us out for a free roof inspection and figured this was going to be a a quick and easy repair. Not even close.

Roof Hail Damage

roofing mansfield ohio two hands holding large chunks of hail

What started out as a simple call for a small leak, ended up becoming a rather large storm damage claim for the homeowner. When one of our highly trained roofers got on their roof, what he discovered was large amounts of hail strikes that had severely damaged the shingles. He also documented that the flashing was severely damaged around the chimney area. (The obvious leak the customer called about was caused by the chimney flashing leak, more on that in a minute.) We provided the customer with the documented damage and as a result they contacted their homeowner’s insurance company to file a claim. 

What is important to note in this situation is that we were the second company this homeowner called. They hadn’t checked the credibility of the first company they originally called for an estimate. That first company gave them a quick repair estimate for the chimney flashing and didn’t even notice all of the severe roof damage from the hail strikes! The homeowner called us for a second opinion because we had superior ratings and reviews compared to the first company they had called. Unlike the other company, we were thorough and made certain that we inspected their entire roof and we documented everything the homeowner would need to make an informed decision with our recommendations. 

A Simple Leak Becomes a New Roof

In the end, because of our superior expertise to accurately identify storm damage and provide an excellent course of action, we earned their trust and performed all of the necessary work to restore their home to its proper condition. Most importantly, the entire job was paid for by their insurance company (minus their deductible)! Included in their storm damage roof repairs was an entire roof replacement, new gutters, flashing, and even two brand new second floor windows.

Roof Damage Storm Claim Pro Tips

Absolute Assurance Restorations is one of the top rated roofing companies in the region. We pride ourselves on providing you with elite roofing and siding installation services especially on roof damage storm claims. We value our customers and the trust they have for us and we will always do right by them. However, not all roofing companies can make the same claim. Oftentimes, customers are persuaded to use companies who are either not that skilled in roofing or they place their trust in a referral and end up with a company who cuts corners to save money. Both of these scenarios tend to not work out well for the homeowner and create bad outcomes for them.

Roof Replacement Claim

For example, recently a homeowner contacted us about a consistent roof leak on a roof that was just replaced two years earlier. The new roof was paid for by their insurance company because it was a roof damage storm claim. This family trusted their insurance company’s recommendation to use a local roofing company to do the roof replacement. They were assured that this company was good due to the fact they were a “preferred vendor” by their insurance company. Why wouldn’t you trust your insurance company? That seems like it would be a wise decision.

The sheathing on this roof was not updated to meet the Ohio Revised Code (notice the large gaps between boards) before the new roof was installed by the shoddy contractor. This caused the shingles to not be fastened properly to the roof. We were called in to fix it correctly.

On this particular roof, the preferred contractor didn’t install the roof according to the Ohio Revised Code. (It is important to note, when your roof isn’t installed correctly your manufacturer warranty is voided.) And because of that fact, the shingles were not fastened correctly and were prone to get lifted up during wind storms. This caused consistent leaks from their roof. And despite all of the leaks that damaged the interior of the home, the roof didn’t have any visible damage from the ground. Basically, the shingles would get lifted up slightly during the storm, allowing rainwater to enter the home, then settle back down after the storm making it look like the roof was in pristine condition. 

Get a Roof Inspection

The homeowner kept contacting the preferred contractor who installed the new roof and they refused to stand by their workmanship. They didn’t believe that rainwater entering into the home was caused by them, despite the fact that they installed the roof! This back and forth went on for multiple years. Frustrated, the homeowner gave up trying to get them to do the right thing. 

We were called to do a free “no contact” roof inspection to diagnose the problem for them. Because of our extensive experience diagnosing roof leaks, we figured it out pretty quickly. Ultimately, we had to replace their entire roof due to it being installed incorrectly. In contrast to the previous company, when we installed the new roof, we installed it correctly and in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code. Above all, the problem is now solved, no more rainwater leaking into the home during storms. 

Use a Certified Roofing Company

I believe this story is important for all homeowners to be aware of. Most insurance companies will do the right thing in most cases. However, don’t just take their word for it about a preferred contractor. Sometimes who they prefer won’t put your needs ahead of the insurance company’s needs. 

The best way to avoid a shoddy roofing company is to check their license and insurance credentials, their reviews, and most importantly check to make sure that your roofing company is a certified installer so your new roof warranty doesn’t get voided. By following these roof storm damage claim pro tips you will be more likely to have a positive experience.

3 Must-Know Tips If Your Roof Has Storm Damage

3 Must Know Tips if Your Roof has Storm Damage

The first must-know tip if your roof has storm damage is, you need to know your homeowner’s insurance policy. Very few homeowners have the time to sit around studying their homeowner’s policy. So when you need to find out what type of policy you have and what it specifically covers, it can feel overwhelming. However, your policy reveals what it covers better than any person offering you their opinion.

Verify Your Coverage in Your Actual Policy

Call your insurance company and be certain you write down what they are telling you is covered and then verify on your actual written policy what they told you is true. Knowledge really is power and you should not just take their word for it. Your policy states specifically what it covers and it should be in writing on your actual policy. When you speak to your insurance agent, request that your agent directs you to the proper section so you know what is covered and what responsibilities you have as the homeowner.

ask your roofer before signing contract home with asphalt shingles

Ask Your Roofer This Before Signing a Contract

Oftentimes, after major storms, people claiming to be local roofers knocking on your door doesn’t mean that they are local or that they even have an actual office somewhere. The vast majority of reputable roofers have actual physical offices nearby or somewhere in your region. But storm-chasers who lack a physical office may also lack legitimate credentials for you to entrust them with repairing or replacing your roof. Here are some questions you may want to ask your roofer before signing a contract with them.

Ask Your Roofer This Before Signing a Contract

Fly-by-night companies don’t stick around long enough to accept the blame for the damage they cause to homeowners. Many even copy popular sounding local roofing companies names, a huge red flag. However, you can be sure that wherever there is a severe storm, you will find less than reputable fly-by-night roofers.

How Long has the Local Roofer been in Business?

Before signing any agreement with any roofer, do a thorough online background check about the prospective companies. Fortunately, with the internet you can find the answers to many of these questions. Also, you can trace their company histories very quickly to verify how long they have been in business and if they even are a business! Find the answers to some of these questions before agreeing to do anything with any roofer.

Ask Your Roofer This Before Singing Contract

It is important to verify if the prospective company is a certified roofer. You can do that by not just asking if they are licensed and insured, but you can ask to see their license and insurance information.

Are They a Certified Roofer?

In the state of Ohio a roofing and siding installation company needs to have a general contractors license to operate. Most reputable roofers will provide you with their credentials. For example, they will either physically show you their general contractors license. Also, they should be willing to email it to you if you request it. Also, you need to check their liability insurance and workmen’s compensation insurance. They need to have verifiable proof that they insure themselves against losses (damages to your home) and injuries to their workers. Most importantly, as a homeowner, you need to be protected from reckless and uninsured companies. As an example, most roofing companies will carry north of one million dollars on a general liability insurance policy.

What is the Roofers BBB Rating?

Be certain to check for your roofing company’s Better Business Bureau rating. Almost all reputable roofers are registered and can be found easily online doing a simple search of the BBB website. While many of them might not have actual reviews on the BBB website, check their actual rating. Most importantly, find a roofing company that has an A+ Rating with their residential roofing customers. This means that your preferred roofer has an excellent dispute-resolution policy. Most importantly, they can handle complaints from customers diligently and in a timely manner.

Ask for References

Lastly, ask your roofer for references. It is helpful to know that other customers, just like you, have had a positive and satisfactory experience with your roofer. Oftentimes, it even helps to know that your roofer has successfully handled similar projects. Experience matters, and all roofers are not equal when it comes to experience level. Certainly, this matters most for storm damage jobs involving an insurance claim.
