Roof Repair And Replacement FAQ's

If you have leaks or structural discoloration inside or out, you probably need a repair job at the very least. We recommend having your roof inspected if you even suspect any problems. Get a professional to look at it and give you an estimate. 

That’s impossible to answer in general. Each job is different. Again, have an inspection from a professional. 

The answer here depends on the size of your home and the condition of your roof. Pricing varies widely, so be sure to get an estimate to know what type of expense you will need to deal with. 

That depends on the condition of the gutters and whether roofers can work around them. Usually, if gutters are in decent shape, we work around them, but sometimes it’s quite cost-effective for you to replace defective gutters during roof jobs. 

Times vary widely, but smaller jobs can be done in just a few days. Apple Roofing will always tell you up front about the time estimate for any job we do. 

We usually advise clients to clear cars and personal items like inflatable pools away from the area where work will be done. Roof repair can be noisy, so most of our customers try to be away for several hours during the heaviest repair work. 

That will depend on whether you have a repair or replacement, the type of roofing materials you choose, and other factors. Ask your roofer about the specific warranty length when you have your estimate and inspection. Some roofs can last up to 25 years or longer. 

Hail and wind are the two biggest enemies of any roof. The other is time (aging). The big problem with hail, wind and other storm damage is that it can be almost invisible. The wear and tear on shingles and other roofing materials might not show up for months. That’s why it’s so important to have a roof inspected after a big storm. Inspections cost nothing and offer peace of mind for homeowners. 

You can look for obvious things (but don’t go up on a ladder! Stay on the ground and just eyeball the roof. Some people use binoculars). Try to see if there are any loose or damaged shingles, missing pieces of trim or chipped wood. Plastic and metal might show small dents or scrapes, especially after a hail storm. 

We’re biased and could just say, “Call Apple Roofing,” but the honest answer is that you’ll need to do some online research. You don’t just pick a doctor from the phone book, and the same goes for roofing. Check on the Internet for reviews, a list of roofers in your area, and see who specializes in what. Then call a few and see how their customer service phone skills are. Ask your specific questions and then decide on your favorite three. Have them each give you an estimate and go from there. 

We say, “Don’t do it.” Unless you are a skilled roofer, it’s best to have a pro handle the job. Getting up on a ladder and checking out a roof is dangerous business. Our teams are insured, experienced, and know exactly what to look for. We do this every day, so there’s no reason for you to try to fix things yourself. It would likely cost you more to do it alone than to hire a reputable contractor who can fix exactly what needs fixing, and do the job efficiently with the proper materials. 

A new roof usually comes with a warranty for materials as well as a warranty from the contractor for the work itself. Ask your contractor about the different material warranties (manufacturers’ warranties) and the contractor’s warranty. 

The environment causes a roof to age. Wind, rain, hail, sun, and many other factors cause a roof to deteriorate over time. Some of the aging is obvious, and some is not. Just as our bodies age slowly and often imperceptibly, our home’s roof gets weaker as time goes on. Rain water contains microscopic amounts of acid and other impurities that break down roofing materials. The sun works slowly but surely to eat away the molecules that make up a roof’s components. Seasonal temperature cycles also do their own kind of damage by causing materials to expand and contract year after year. This leads to brittleness and eventual breakage. 

That’s something best left to an expert. Leaks come from all sorts of places, not always a roof. Let an experienced contractor take a look at your leak’s position, age, and amount of dripping. From those factors, they can usually trace it to the source. Unless you are a licensed roofer, electrician or architect, it can be quite dangerous to attempt to find a leak’s source on your own. 

A new roof will add to the value of your home, increase its curb appeal (meaning it will sell faster if you put it up for sale), increased property value, and increased energy efficiency. 

Hail damage roofing symptoms include things like broken shingles, damaged tiles and multiple indentations anywhere on the roof, on the gutters, or on areas where siding covers the home. Asphalt, wood, and composition shingles react to hail in quite different ways. For example, an excess of granules (from asphalt shingles) in gutters is usually a sign that recent hail damage has shaken the granules free. This leaves the shingles susceptible to heat damage, cracking and eventual breakdown. Chipped, broken, or cracked shingles are the most obvious signs that hail has done its dirty work. Less obvious features of hail damage include loss of granules (see above), an unusually “shiny” asphalt matting on shingles, tiny orange or brown splits in the bodies of shingles, dents in the roof surface, small black dots in roof coverings, and many more. The bottom line is this: If there’s been a hail storm, call the experts at Apple Roofing for a free inspection, a free estimate and the most trusted repair team in the industry. We’ll make sure all insurance claims are filed accurately and on time so that homeowners can get the damage fixed without hassles or delays. 

Here are the most common signs that a home has storm damage roofing problems: Discoloration on interior walls and ceilings, dripping water anywhere in the home, missing or damaged shingles, musty/bad odor coming from walls or ceilings. 

Insurance Claims FAQ

Storm damage varies based on severity of the wind or hailstorm that passed through your neighborhood. It can be as obvious as missing shingles or it may be something more subtle such as hail marks that are not visible from the ground. 

Evidence of wind damage is the easiest to spot. You may notice that your shingles are “lifting”, “folding-up”, or are missing completely. Since straight-line wind usually only travels in one direction, you will probably notice on certain sides of your home where the damages are much worse. These are the sides that directly faced the incoming wind. If this is happening, you can almost guarantee that the other sides will show the same result if and when high wind hits them, as well. When one of our Roofing Consultants comes to inspect your roof, they will be looking for shingles that have been creased from being lifted by wind or missing granules caused by hail. 

It is the homeowners responsibility for stopping the leak. If you have active water coming into your house through a roof leak, you should call a Apple Roofing to do an emergency tarping of the roof to prevent further damage. 

The homeowner is responsible for calling in the claim, however, we will help you though the entire process. We’ll inspect your roof and provide all the photos and documentation to assist in answering any questions that insurance may ask. 

Yes! Contact us with the day and time the insurance adjuster is scheduled to be at your home, and we will be there to meet with them. We will walk the roof with the adjuster and show the areas of storm damage and other documented damage. 

No, your insurance rates should not increase if you file a claim due to weather related damage. However, an insurance company can raise the rates of an entire neighborhood that has been affected by storm damage. 

There are two major types of residential insurance policies: Actual Cash Value (ACV) and Replacement Cost (RC). 

That will depend on whether you have a repair or replacement, the type of roofing materials you choose, and other factors. Ask your roofer about the specific warranty length when you have your estimate and inspection. Some roofs can last up to 25 years or longer. 

With the ACV policy, your roof’s value depreciates each year for the life of the shingle. In this policy you will only receive a check for the depreciated value of your roof. 

With the RC policy, your insurance will cover the cost of roof replacement minus your deductible. This policy is paid out in two installments. The first check is sent to the policy holder by the insurance company once the insurance adjuster has completed their roof damage assessment. The second check is held until the repairs to your roof are completed. It is sent to the homeowner when the insurance company receives a final invoice for payment. 

No, we will not cover your deductible. Roofing contractors who say they will cover the deductible are committing insurance fraud. We pride ourselves in being honest and fair with all our customers and therefore we do not compromise on our ethics. 

No, you do not need to get more than one estimate. As the homeowner you can choose the contractor you want to do the repairs. Your insurance company may suggest to get more than one estimate, however, if you get multiple estimates your insurance company will most likely go with the cheapest estimate and not always the best quality option. 

If your insurance company denies the claim, don’t despair! We will continue to work with you to get a second opinion from a public adjuster who can access the damage, adjust the claim and get it settled in a fair manner. 

No worries. We have an entire team at Apple Roofing who are dedicated to filing supplemental claims on behalf of the homeowner. In fact, many roofs damaged by storms have underlying damage that needs to be repaired as part of the overall claim. Again, don’t worry. We’ll work on your behalf with the insurance company to document the additional damage and request approval to repair the damage under the initial claim.
