Common Questions

Answers to All Your Contracting Inquiries

How do I know if my roof is damaged?

Most likely, you will not know unless you have an inspector look at your roof. Hail damage is rarely identified from the ground and although your shingles look undamaged, you could still have hidden damage.

Will the insurance company raise my rates if I file a claim?

No. It is against the law for insurance companies to raise rates or drop coverage because of a weather-related claim.

My roof is old. Is it worth my while to file a claim with my insurance company?

Yes. Insurance policies are written for the full replacement cost regardless of the age of your roof. If your roof is more than 10 years old, chances are you have weather damage.

Is this an insurance scam?

No. In fact, as a Haag certified company, it is our responsibility to help you protect your investment against weather damage. We offer this service and our expertise at no obligation or risk to you.
