Roofing Reviews Project 6: Roof Damage Repairs

If you have roof damage, it is likely that it was caused by a storm. So who do you contact when you need a high quality roof repair and you need it done in a timely done fashion? Call roofers who are highly rated and have demonstrated the skillset to successfully repair your roof.

Roofing Repair Companies

This particular customer contacted us about a couple of  leaks in their roof. After our thorough roof inspection, we determined that most of their roof still had about fifteen years of lifespan remaining. However, two simple repairs (flashing) were necessary to fix some leaks. Also, a partial replacement of one of the sections had gotten beaten up pretty bad by recent high winds. This caused numerous leaks in one area. 

Fortunately, the customer was able to get a quick and easy claim processed by their insurance company who agreed with our assessment of the situation. We scheduled the roofing repairs and partial roof replacement and fully restored their roof. The homeowner was pleased with this outcome and we were happy to assist.  It means a lot to us to provide great service to homeowners in their time of need.

Not every home needs a complete roof replacement. That is another reason why it is hugely important that you choose roofing companies with verifiable reputations. Sadly, far too many companies tell homeowners that they just need a new roof without considering other options. They ignore the needs of the customer and push for the full replacement of their roof.

In addition to this practice being very wasteful, it heaps unnecessary stress onto the homeowner. There is nothing like stressing someone out by providing them with an absurd roof estimate for a roof that doesn’t need to be replaced. And this shoddy practice can easily cause any homeowner to become jaded about all companies, and understandably so.

Any time you need a full roof replacement, the roofing company you choose to use should be able to demonstrate exactly why the whole roof needs replaced instead of a partial replacement or a simple repair. Remarkably, we have even seen some situations were the roof didn’t needed replaced or even repaired!

How Long Should My Roof Last?

When assessing how long your roof should last, you must take into consideration a few important factors. Firstly, how old is your roof? Secondly, was your roof installed properly? Most importantly, when your roof was installed, what quality of shingles were used?

Roofing Contractors in Mansfield Ohio

roofing companies near me installing new gray shingle roof on home

How Old Is Your Roof?

Most shingle roofs will last 20-30 years with minimal maintenance. The sun and harsh weather can really wear down a roof, especially a roof with no shade in the summer and harsh winds hitting it in the winter. In Central Ohio, those winds can be especially harsh adding to the wear and tear of a roof.

Was Your Roof Installed Properly?

Roof installation is hugely important when assessing the lifespan of your roof. Improper installation affects the lifespan of a lot of roofs. From improperly aligned shingles to not using enough nails per shingle, each of these can cause your roof to wear out much quicker, develop leaks, and require excessive costly roof leak repairs along the way.

Oftentimes, homeowners try to purchase the cheapest roof possible, and understandably so. However, cheaper doesn’t mean higher quality, or longer lasting. Cheaper installers are typically using lower quality materials and use less experienced roofers to install the roof.

(On a side note, we have had to rescue a lot of homeowners over the years from improperly installed roofs. Sometimes that cheap roof you have the opportunity to purchase might come with a horror story. And we have seen some pretty awful situations unsuspecting homeowners have had to deal with.)

Roofing Companies in Mansfield Ohio

Do You Have High Quality Shingles?

In addition, the quality of your shingles can also heavily factor into how long your roof should last. High quality shingles are heavier and more durable. And they can resist much harsher winds than your average shingle sold at your local home improvement store.

Where can you get more durable shingles for your roof? Like I mentioned above, most of the shingles available at your local home improvement store are light-weight shingles and tend to be cheaper quality (you get what you pay for). Consequently, the heavy duty shingles are typically only available through roofing companies who have received training to become certified installers by the shingle manufacturers. In short, using a licensed and certified roofer can really pay off in the long run. Most notably, on all of our roof replacements and installs, we follow the Ohio Revised Code of regulations.

All of these factors added up will tell you how long your roof should last. The better the quality and installation of your roof, plus how old your roof is, will typically determine how long your roof will last. 

Absolute Assurance Restorations has a proven track record for properly installing roofs and providing homeowners with that peace of mind you deserve. We provide you with long-lasting warranties and a workmanship guarantee on all of our work, as demonstrated by our top rated reviews as roofing contractors in Mansfield, Ohio.

Roof Replacement Storm Damage Roof Repair

Mansfield Roof Replacement Project 2

This is yet another example of a home that experienced storm damage and we assisted the homeowner in getting all damages replaced. Instead of showing up and just giving a quote for a roof repair, like many other roofers, I sent one of my highly trained roofers out to do a thorough inspection of the entire roof and siding. After careful inspection, our roofer discovered severe storm damage across multiple sections of the roof. 

[As one of the top rated roofing contractors Mansfield Ohio, we pride ourselves on providing you with the most thorough roof inspection in the industry. Accordingly, we follow a point by point storm damage inspection process and we inspect every part of your roof. Contact the top residential roofing company for a free estimate.]

Free Roofing Estimate

First of all, in this particular situation, this homeowner contacted us for a free roofing estimate. Secondly, one of my highly trained roofers met with the homeowner at their convenience. Thirdly, instead of assuming the roof just needed a basic roof repair, my roofer discovered legitimate storm damage when he performed our step by step storm damage inspection process. And the damage was quite extensive across multiple sections of the roof.

Lastly, our roofer processed the estimate and provided it to the homeowner to submit it to the insurance company. The homeowner requested that we meet with the adjuster and after some back and forth with the insurance company, the roof damage was approved.

Aren’t All Roofers Equally As Good?  

roofers in Mansfield Ohio roofing project home with new shingle roof and white vinyl siding

Actually, “no”. This scenario I described seems so simple, yet it gets botched quite often by shoddy roofers. This is a process that cannot be left to inexperienced companies and pushy sales people. The roof on your home matters greatly and no one can afford the time, money and frustration of hiring less-than-reputable contractors.  

Like any other profession, there is an entire spectrum of roofers who are great, good, average, below average and downright terrible. Calling a roofer who is anything but great (or at least good) makes it a near certainty that something is going to go wrong with your roof repair or replacement. And I’m not referring to issues like poor communication, untimely communication, or poor cleanup. I’m talking about someone who completely botches your roof by not installing it correctly, using shoddy materials, shoddy workmanship, or overcharges you in some way. 

The Importance of Your Roof

Your roof is your homes first and last line of defense. And there is nothing that protects your home from the outside elements that is more important than your roof. Your siding and windows are a close second. So picking a great roofer is essential to making certain that it is installed correctly, according to the Ohio Revised Code. Also, a great roofer will use top quality materials, provide outstanding workmanship and be certain that you aren’t overcharged. 

Absolute Assurance Restorations is the most qualified storm damage roofer in the region. We have multiple offices serving a wide range of Central Ohio including Mansfield, Ashland, Bucyrus, Delaware, Mt. Vernon, etc. Also, we are one of the top rated vinyl siding companies in the region. In addition, we install slate roofing, metal roofing, rubber roofing, flat roofs, skylight replacement and gutters. Contact us for a free estimate. (419) 709-7223.

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. 

Roofing Companies

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 Roof Tarping

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.

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 roofers in Mansfield Ohio, 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 may be an indicator that that roofer is not up to the task. 

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. 

Absolute Assurance Restorations is a top rated Mansfield roofing company. We have multiple locations across the Central Ohio Region. We also offer top rated siding contractors, gutter installation, windows and skylight contractors services.

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.

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

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.

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. 

roof storm damage claim roof deck after shingle tearoff
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.
