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.

Roof and Home Siding Damage Qualified as Claim

Absolute Assurance Restorations handles lots of Mansfield roofing claims. Throughout the entire summer we have inspected many homes for simple repairs and they ended up having severe roof damage from storms during the spring. Here is another quick example. 

Storm Damage Roofing Inspection

We had a recent call for a roof repair. Apparently, there was a leak in one of the bedrooms of the home. It seemed simple and easy to the homeowner. The ceiling damage looked small and not too serious. However, when one of our roofers got there and onto the roof, extensive wind damage was discovered. 

Entire sections of shingles had been lifted up. Each time it would rain and the wind was blowing, rain water was easily making it into the attic of the home. (Typically, when it rains during a storm, there are strong winds.) We documented the damage and reported it to the homeowner. He was utterly shocked when he saw how extensive the damage was! When your roof looks okay from ground level, it is just hard to believe that a storm could cause so much damage. But the pictures of the damage always provide a new understanding of how powerful Mother Nature can be. 

Vinyl Siding Damage

In addition to the extensive damage on the roof, this particular home also had severe damage to the siding as well. There was cracked siding throughout entire sections of his vinyl siding. Again, this homeowner could’ve believe that so much damage had been inflicted on his home by a previous storm that happened in later spring. Remember, he was just looking to get a simple roof leak repair!

After documenting all of the damage, we advised this homeowner throughout the claims process. Ultimately, his roof and siding damage qualified as storm damage and was paid for by his insurance. 

Once approved, we sent out our roofing contractor crew and our vinyl siding contractors crew at the homeowner’s convenience. The roof replacement and vinyl siding replacement were done in one day and we quickly cleaned up the yard mess afterward. The roof and siding were installed in accordance with the Ohio Revised Code and both came with full manufacturers warranties. Also, we provided a our standard full workmanship warranty.

Roofers Ohio Responsible Restart

Roofers Ohio Responsible Restart Update

Throughout the Ohio stay-at-home orders, Absolute Assurance Restorations has been operating at full-scale as an essential business. As hard working roofers in Ohio, we are super excited that a plan was laid out to Responsibly Restart Ohio that will directly help more businesses reopen across Ohio. Since we have been fully functional throughout these difficult times, we are confident that as a society we can do this while protecting one another.

Basic Safety Procedures Will Continue

Public officials laid out their basic plan for all Ohioans to follow so that more of us can get back to work while simultaneously still protecting each other and our families. Firstly, the plan involves staggering the opening of select sectors of the economy while still balancing health and safety. Secondly, maintaining current social distancing procedures are essential. Thirdly, employees must wear “face coverings.” Also, employees must maintain hand washing procedures and periodically sanitize their work spaces. Lastly, any employee who is symptomatic at work must “immediately isolate and seek medical care.” 

Here is the bulletin issued out by health officials:

roofers Ohio responsible restart Ohio guidelines

Responsible Restart Ohio Business Open Dates

Here is a breakdown of businesses that can open in Ohio with the start date:

  • On May 1, we will have a healthcare opening. Remember, we slowed non-essential procedures down because we needed to make sure: that we had enough hospital beds, PPE, and social distancing… All healthcare procedures that do not require an overnight stay in a hospital can move forward. Dentists and veterinarians can also begin full steam ahead on May 1.
  • May 4th: Manufacturing, Distribution, and Construction will open back up. But we’re going to require those who are opening and those who already have been open – to follow strict guidelines on how to reopen.
  • May 4th: General office environments can reopen in Ohio. However, we still want people to work from home as much as possible.
  • May 12th: Consumer, Retail, and Services to reopen.

Businesses Not Scheduled to Open Yet

At this time, some business sectors are not permitted to reopen until further notice including: 

roofers ohio business sectors still closed

I personally know many small business owners who cannot open yet. They are great people and this is a very difficult time for them and their employees. I think it is important for the rest of us to do our part to further this opening process along by maintaining all required safety standards. Until then, we will continue to support as many businesses as we can, including restaurants who offer carry-out meals and eLearning for students.

Soon enough, we hope our fellow Ohioans are back to work. I look forward to the day when I can get my typical buzz cut, get a great workout in at the gym, and grab a beer at my favorite restaurant.

Siding Damage from Storms

When a Storm Damages Your Siding

When a storm damages your siding you will need to get an inspection done as soon as possible. If there are visible holes or cracks in your siding then you will need to get it repaired as soon as possible. High velocity crosswinds can blow debris or hail directly into your siding causing severe damage. Oftentimes, the damage is more severe than most people realize because it goes beyond just needing siding replacement. There may be hidden damage toward the peaks of the home where the damage isn’t quite as visible when you are observing the damage from the ground.  

Most homeowner’s policies protect you from wind and hail damage when it damages your siding, windows, and trim. Most importantly, your roof is covered in the event that the damage affected your roof as well. When we get called out to do inspections for siding damage caused by storms, we always inspect the roof. It is essential that when you get an inspection for your siding that the roofers inspect your roof as well. Consequently, if your siding is damaged by the storm then it is highly likely that your roof is damaged as well.

why you should use vinyl siding home with tan and brown vinyl siding
Siding Vinyl Siding

Why You Want to Use Vinyl Siding

In today’s home improvement market vinyl siding has grown in popularity. In today’s market, for instance, vinyl is now the most widely used siding in the United States. Roughly one-third of all homes built in the United States have vinyl siding installed. But why should you want to use vinyl siding? And is this type of material that is best for the region you live in?

Why You Want to Use Vinyl Siding?

As a roofing contractor in Mansfield, Ohio, we have extensive experience with different types of siding in one of the most volatile weather regions in the country. This is most noteworthy in Central Ohio where the snow belt provides some of the harshest winter and spring storms. As a result, Richland County, Crawford County and Ashland County get pummeled every year with snow storms, wind storms and hail.

When it comes to protection from harsh weather like ours, vinyl siding stands out very well among the alternatives.

Vinyl Siding Protects Your Home

First of all, it can provide that sound protection from the outside elements that our region gets pummeled with every year. Above all, it is very capable of handling the harsh winds in our region. Most types of vinyl can be installed to give it a tight fit which will prevent it from blowing off during heavy wind storms. However, it will have just enough flexibility on each panel that strong gusts of wind won’t snap any sections in half and require any repairs.

Also, with the more modern vinyl siding, they tend to not fade as much. The Sun can fade almost anything over time and it causes building materials to dry out. However, modern advancements have allowed us to install siding that is less susceptible to fading over time.

Vinyl Won’t Rust or Dent

In addition, vinyl won’t rust and it doesn’t dent very easily. Unlike some metal sidings, you won’t be worrying about rust. And it takes a solid amount of force to put a hole in vinyl, so you won’t have to worry much about that either.

Lastly, when installed properly vinyl will allow materials underneath it to breath properly so you won’t have to worry much about water getting behind it and rotting the wood underneath. It is hugely important that whatever siding you do decide to install is done properly. There are many sources for you to go to be certain proper installation guidelines are followed.

If you need vinyl siding installation and you want it installed properly, Absolute Assurance Restorations is a top rated siding contractor. Our positive reviews on Google speak for themselves and we encourage you to check them out. In addition, we also provide roof repair and replacement, windows and skylights installation.
