Aren't All Roofers in Independence, Missouri The Same?

Insurance companies will try to make you think you need to go get three or more estimates, like that's in your policy or something. Well, it's not. When you need a roof replacement or roof repair due to storm damage, fire, or other disaster, and you have an insurance claim, you're in a vulnerable position, and you'll never recover for the inconvenience and sometimes heartache you go through. Even hail damage means you need major construction on your house. It might not look like it, but if you've ever been inside a house getting a new roof, it's like the 4th of July all day long. Bang bang bang. Dirt and debris and trash everywhere (which they will pick up, of course, but still...).

To add insult to injury, your insurance company wants you to get multiple estimates for the repairs, implying that contractors are going to try to price gouge you, and rip you off, and you better search for the lowest price - look for the thrift store of roofers, in other words. Common sense tells you that you are going to get what you pay for, but you feel obligated to get the "best price." Sound familiar?

Here's a story, there's a YouTube video about it. It's one example but this happens much more than you might think, just search for worst roofing job ever. This story goes that insurance paid for a new roof, and the homeowners got multiple estimates. One roofer bid $400 less than another who did the video. He was going to do the job right, but they went with the cheaper contractor. He got called back out months later to look at the leaks.

This other contractor didn't remove the old roof, he just roofed right over the old ones. He didn't replace any vents, and he didn't even bother to fix the flashing, which also should have been replaced. They didn't seal all the exposed fasteners. That might not seem like a big thing, but every part of your roof has to be sealed to keep the water out. That's the whole point of a roof.

Now the whole roof needs to be torn off and replaced, at even more cost to the owners, because there are now two layers of shingles. Just when you think to yourself, "it can't get any worse, that's what insurance is for, right?" Well, insurance won't pay for this reinstall, because it wasn't caused by a "covered peril."

We see shoddy installation jobs more frequently than you would think. It seems that everyone with a hammer and a truck can be a roofer, and these self-taught handymen like to go around and "fix" people's roofs "for real cheap."

Sometimes they don't take the deposit and run (but sometimes they do). Sometimes they actually show up and do the work you paid them for, and when they finish, you wonder if it would have been better if they had skipped town.

No one wants their roof trending on YouTube with the title "worst roofing job ever!"

Here are some things you can do to prevent that:

  • Don't go with the cheapest roofer in [iss_city_abbr_state]  you can find.
  • Go with a contractor with the experience to do the job right, the first time.
  • Use a roofing company who backs their work with the best warranty in the industry.

FAQ

What skills should I look for in a roofer?
What skills should I look for in a roofer? To be thorough and vet a roofing company that you're looking to hire, there are a few skills/credentials that you should look for:
  • Experience as a roofer in similar roofing repair projects
  • Able to make a thorough evaluation of the damage in your roof
  • Can help you file your insurance claim
How do I tell if I get a bad roof repair?
If you want to make sure that your roof repair was done correctly, then are a few things to look out for in your new roof:
  • Simply put, check your roof for a consistent appearance
    • A sub-par roof repair will consist of different colored shingles, or the new shingles may be a different material from the old shingles.
  • Nails used improperly on shingles
    • Expert roofing contractors will know how to use proper nailing techniques. If you see that nails are pushed in too deeply (as if too much pressure was used when they were applied), or if the nails are rusted, then your roof was installed poorly.  A good roofer won't use too much pressure when nailing, and they will use rust-resistant nails.
  • Re-used Flashing
    • This is one of the more overt signs that you've used a bad roofing service. Old flashing should only be used once, and any roofer that attempts to re-use old flashing when repair your roof cares more about getting paid than doing a proper repair.
  • Drip Edge Flashing is not included in your roof repair
    • Typically, Edge Flashing has been included in repairs in recent years. It's designed to protect against water damage and pest infestation. If your roof repair is missing this component, you've gotten a less than decent repair.
  • Not addressing possible rotted roof decking
    • Any good roofer will tear away the old material and check to see if the roof decking is rotted underneath. Without this problem being addressed, the new shingle and flashing will have a hard to time staying nailed to the rotted plywood underneath that wasn't replaced.
Will you remove and replace my old roof?
If the damage to your roof is extensive and more than a simple patch-up is required, then a replacement of your roof is most likely the route that will be taken. If you do not have a newer roof, attempting to make simple repairs will cause more damage to the flashing on your roof, and you'll face additional problems within several months. In the case of an old roof, the best thing to do is replace the roof and ensure that you won't have additional leaks for years to come.
