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

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.

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. 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!

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 Roof Replacement in Ashland

This week we did a roof replacement for one of our customers. It should be noted that their new roof was being paid for by insurance because of storm damage to their roof. In this case, the fierce winds from a recent storm lifted up quite a few of their shingles and scattered them throughout their yard. Importantly, I’m happy to say that our customer followed our standard process for storm damage and had a pretty smooth journey from calling us for a free estimate to having their roof replaced.

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. 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!

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 tips for storm damaged roof home with shingles
Roof Installation Roof Repair Roof Replacement Roofing Storm / Wind Damage roof repair

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.

Contact Local Roofers for a Free Estimate

must know tips if you have storm damage home with roof replacement

What responsibilities do I have as a homeowner? First of all, you need to take proper action to prevent additional damage to your home. For example, you would contact some reputable roofers near Mansfield, Ohio. You will need them to come to your home and identify the damage and to provide you with a detailed written estimate of all those damage. You will then know if your home needs a roof repair or a roof replacement. Following this must know tip if your roof has storm damage will greatly help move the process along. Certainly, when you have your detailed written estimate to go over with your insurance claims agent, this will put you into a position of knowing what needs repaired.

Have Roofers Cover the Damage to Prevent Additional Roof Repairs

Lastly, a hugely important must know tip if you have storm damage is to have those roofers cover the damaged parts of your roof to prevent further damage. Immediately covering the damaged parts of your roof will reduce the risk of further damage and allow you to fulfill your obligation regarding your insurance policy to prevent any additional damage. Most importantly, when you have your roof covered it will set you on a path to protecting the interior of your home. For example, you will reduce the chances of roof leaks allowing water into the interior walls of the home and causing mold and wood rot.

ask your roofer before signing contract home with asphalt shingles
Roof Installation Roof Replacement Roofing Storm / Wind Damage roof repair

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

ask your roofer this before signing contract home with shingle roof

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. 

At Absolute Assurance Restorations, you can count on us to repair or install your roof in accordance with the latest building regulations. Certainly, we follow the strict guidelines that come from the Ohio Revised Code. Our experience and skill level is reflected in our online reviews from our customers. Feel free to contact us, because we are happy to answer any questions you may have about roofing and storm damage claims. We are a top roofer near Mansfield, Ohio. Call us at (419) 709-7223.

Which one you choose to use depends on the overall cost you want to pay, the useful life of the roof you want, and the region of the country you live in.

Asphalt Shingles Roof Installation

3-Tab 

Firstly, the 3-tab is the least expensive kind of roof shingle.  Many landlords install the 3-tab on their rental houses in order to keep their overall rent prices cheaper. As a side note, the 3-tab is more difficult to install because the roofing contractor installing it must be certain that all of the tabs, rows and columns align so you get those straight lines and nice pattern on the roof.

Secondly, the 3-tab has a shorter useful life than the architectural. They tend to last only about 20-25 years. Lastly, if you live in a region with high winds and is likely to have harsh storms, then the 3-tab is not going to be your best option. The 3-tab roughly up to a 60-mph wind resistance, making it the least durable of the asphalt shingles on the market. Typically, people in the more temperate southeast and southwest of the country are more likely to install the 3-tab. 

Architectural 

First of all, architectural shingles cost more to purchase than 3-tabs, due to the higher quality. The extra cost is justified because you will get a longer useful life out of them. Also, they are much more durable than the 3-tabs when considering the weather. They have a slightly greater wind resistance than the 3-tab. They can endure up to 70-mph winds when they are installed properly. 

Premium Architectural Shingles

Premium Architectural Shingles are the most expensive of the three types. However, they provide the maximum protection against the harsh winds. The Midwest and the northeast are hot-spots for this premium roof shingle. Also, these have a useful life of 50 years. On this rare occasion, the most expensive roofing option is typically what shingle is best.

So What Shingles are the Best?

To sum it up, if you aren’t sure what shingles are best, if you live in a high wind region, you should be installing Premium Architectural. If you live in a moderate climate area, you can install the basic 3-tab. If you aren’t sure what type of wind region you live in, contact a local licensed and certified roofing company. Also, you can contact your insurance company and they can possibly help you.

Three Tips To Know for a Roof Replacement

A lot of homeowners install a new roof every single year. First of all, most people know what their roof should look like when it is installed. However, more experienced homeowners are aware of some of those lesser known parts of the roofing system that are absolutely essential to know. When it is time to replace your roof, here are three tips to know for a roof replacement.

Absolute Assurance Restorations are top rated roofers near Mansfield, Ohio. We are happy to share these tips to know for a roof replacement. Always use reputable roofers when doing any roof repair or roof replacement. 

Roofing System – Drip Edge

Your newly installed roof needs to have all parts of the system installed properly for your roof to provide maximum protection to your home. Yes, you have the shingles, ridge vent, valleys and slopes, and gutters. But knowing what is installed underneath the exterior shingles is what makes all the difference. 

Firstly, your preferred roofer needs to install drip edge. Drip edge is the metal strip attached along the edge of your roof. It prevents water from getting underneath your shingles. Consequently, it prevents your decking underneath your shingles from rotting. Water getting underneath your shingles will cause warping and rooting of the wood attached to your home’s rafters.

Roof Decking Boards

Secondly, before you install your new roof, you must be certain that the decking boards underneath are not warped or rotted. You must replace any damaged decking boards. Without sturdy decking boards your shingles cannot be nailed correctly to your roof. Most importantly, when replacing your decking boards you must be certain they have minimal gaps between them. Consequently, when decking boards aren’t installed correctly, many of the nails used to fasten the shingles won’t be nailed to anything. As a result, this reduces the effectiveness of your roofing system.

Ice Guard and Water Shield

Lastly, due to the harsh winters in Central Ohio, it is must that you install ice guard and water shield underneath your shingles. Installing these two waterproof underlayments will safeguard your home from water that gets underneath your shingles when ice damming and heavy winds occur. 

Not installing any of these three important parts of your roofing system can cause any homeowner countless hours of stress. That is why knowing these three tips for a roof replacement are absolutely essential.
