What To Ask Your Roofer Let’s say that you see hail the size of golf balls coming down and you see what the stones are doing to the trees and everything in its path. Think about what that does to your roof. Even if you don’t see damage from the ground, you will need to have an inspection done. If there is damage and you need an extensive repair or even replacement, there are some questions you may wish to ask your roofer. They are:
- What is the best protection you can provide me?
- What are the hailstone size limits for the different roof classes?
- How much does each class cost?
- How long will it take to install the new roof?
Just make sure that a simple repair is enough before making the decision to do an entire replacement. Entire replacements are not always warranted and you shouldn’t worry about it until a lot of damage has been done or it is simply time for you to replace. This is especially so when dealing with the insurance company. They will only pay for a repair if that is all you need.
The Roof Inspection
It is best to have your Lakeville roofing company inspect your roof before the insurance adjuster arrives. There are two reasons why this is important. The first reason is that a person who sees damage on a regular basis is able to see things that other people may not be able to. Some damage is obvious to most people, but there are other forms of damage that are not. The second reason is that the contractor is going to know what the cost is going to be to perform the needed repairs. Many adjusters come from out of state and they are not aware of what the local labor costs are, what the construction methods are, and what codes contractors have to follow. You can provide the adjuster with information from your contractor to assist you in your claim.
