What Should I Know About Hiring A Storm Damage Repair Company?
When hiring a storm damage restoration company, homeowners may wrongfully assume that it is customary to sign the insurance check over to the contractor in order to get the project started. However, doing so leaves the homeowner minimal recourse if the storm damage company does not complete the project correctly or in its entirety. This makes it even more important to read online reviews about storm damage restoration contractors and ask their homeowner references thorough questions. Contractors should also be licensed and insured. While viewing a copy of a contractor’s insurance policy it is a good idea, an even better idea is calling their insurance company to verify that they are still approved for the amounts their policy is stating.
What Should I Look For In A Roof Replacement Estimate?
Before partnering with a roofer, it’s wise to know what type of roof installation they plan to complete. That’s because a roof estimate can vary greatly depending on the roofing material that is being used. After a storm damage insurance claim, many homeowners opt for the installation of impact-resistant shingles. A roof installation with this type of shingles makes it likely that hail will not cause damage in the future. This type of roof replacement can be eligible for insurance discounts. Examples of shingles with Class 4 impact resistance include GAF Glenwood® and Timberline® ArmorShield II.
