Most homeowner don't know that partial repairs of individual wind damaged shingles should often warrant a full roof replacement of the entire roofing system by their homeowners insurance. That's why meeting with your insurance adjuster can save you a lot of time and money. Here's why.. over time shingles can become brittle and break easily when lifted in order to replace the wind damaged shingles nailed below them. On such roofs select repairs may cause even more damage to the surrounding repair area. Our inspectors who assist with your claim are trained to submit a "brittleness test" to determine if replacement is a better option as opposed to a “roof patch”. If your shingles are too brittle and old (usually 10+ years old) then your homeowners insurance may provide you an entire new roofing system, or in the very least replace the entire slope/area where the wind damage is located. There are several factors that determine roof "repairability" vs "full replacement" but having a qualified roof inspector from Roof Claim Express come and examine your roof for free could keep you from having an unseemly roof larch when you should really have a whole new roof. Call us today for a free preliminary roof inspection/consultation and we can meet with your insurance adjuster for their inspection!
