We get far more roof repair questions than for any other service we provide. In today’s blog we’re going to answer some of the most common questions we’re asked. Keep in mind that the same question may not have the same answer for every customer, especially the question, “Do I need a roof replacement or repair?

Will the Repaired Section Look the Same as the Rest of my Roof?

The short and honest answer that it likely won’t look exactly the same. No matter which roofing company you call for your roof replacement, they will do their best to match the shingles. However, because shingles fade from the sun over time, even if they use the same brand and color, there will be slight variations. Sometimes, manufacturers discontinue shingles and then the roofer does their best to match what you have with what is available.

Why Won’t My Insurance Company Cover My Roof Repair?

Of all the roof repair questions we get, this is the most confusing one for many people. Although your roof has a leak or something else wrong, it’s not always due to storm damage. Your homeowner’s insurance covers things like storm and fire damage. A leak due to lack of maintenance or an aging roof won’t be covered. And, in some cases, a covered claim roof repair cost could be less than your deductible which makes it feel like your insurance company isn’t covering the claim.

My Insurance Company Gave Me the Name of a Roofer to Perform the Repair, Do I Have to Use Them?

No. In fact, it’s rarely a good idea to use the roofer recommended by your insurance company. They contract with the company who will do the job the cheapest. Cheap often means cutting corners or using less than the best materials. Don’t take the risk, call a trusted local roofing company who stands behind their repairs.

Should I Call the Roofer Who Installed My Roof for Repair?

That depends. If you feel they did a good job and were satisfied, then call them. Also, if the roof was recently installed and you’re within your workmanship warranty, then yes, call them. If you don’t feel the company has a good reputation or you weren’t satisfied with the job they did for you, you are under no obligation to call them. Your manufacturer’s warranty will not be impacted by calling another licensed roofer.
