Common Roofing questions

Below we’ve put together some answers to the most frequently asked roofing questions that we receive:

It depends, however in most cases, yes. Your insurance carrier will typically cover hail damage as it is an “act of god”, and while the damage may not be immediately visible, it can lead to long-term issues. Hail damage can be difficult to detect with an un-trained eye, but over-time, as the shingle is exposed to the sun’s UV rays, your roof can experience rotting underlayment, decking, mold and water entering your home.


Absolutely! Many of our customers come to us from referrals of neighbors and friends that we have helped with their storm damaged roofs. We specialize in storm damage restoration, and are trained in how to identify and spot hail and wind damage. If you are looking for storm damage roofing professionals, you found the right company!

The answer is, “it depends”. If you have a 5 year old leaking roof, you may have a minor problem causing that leak spot. That may entail only an inexpensive and quick repair.  If you have a 15 year old roof that suffered hail or wind damage, it may require full replacement. Age is one of the biggest factors when it comes to roof replacement.

We use Owens Corning Duration shingles, and are pleased to be able to offer lifetime limited warranties! Ask a sales rep during your consultation for more information about our workmanship warranties, as well as material warranties! Not every company offers the same thing – we take pride in our premium warranty options!

One question we frequently get is what if the homeowner essentially does nothing. If your roofing system is compromised, you can begin to see water spots forming on your ceiling, and leaks entering your home. This can lead to worsening damage, as well as water damage and mold formation in your home. Wind damage can lift your shingles, and cause a break in the seals, as well as completely blow shingles off of your roof. Wind can diminish the effectiveness of your roof to divert water from your home, and is why insurance will typically cover wind damage as an “act of god”.
