Not All Roofers in Kent, Iowa Are the Same

Insurance companies will try to make you think you need to go get multiple estimates, like it's a stated requirement in your policy or something. It's not though. When you require 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 seemingly-endless struggle and in some cases 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. Banging on the roof. debris and strangers everywhere, walking around your house and property, materials thrown haphazardly around (which they will of course pick up, of course, but still...).As if that's not bad enough, your insurance company wants you to get three or more estimates for the repairs. This implies that contractors are going to try to price gouge you, and rip you off, so you'd better search for the lowest price – AKA look for the thrift store of roofers, as though price is the only concern. You know that you are going to get what you pay for, but you feel you're required to get the lowest bid. Does this sound familiar?

On YouTube there's a story about a homeowner who saved $400 by going with the cheapest roofer. This happens more often than you might think, just look up "worst roofing job ever." This story goes that insurance paid for a roof replacement, and the homeowners got several bids. The contractor who made the video was only $400 more. He was going to do the job right, but the owner went with the cheapest contractor because that’s what their insurance company encouraged them to do. He got called back out months later, because the roof was leaking.

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

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.
What should be in my roofing estimate?

Before you blindly commit to a roof repair, there are a few expenses you should look out for in your estimate. Make sure that your estimate is as specific and has a line item list for you to review that includes items such as the following: (any repairs that your get for your roof that you don't see in the estimate will be factored into the final cost and likely make it higher than the original estimate)

  • Shingle cost
  • The number of nails used per shingle
  • Whether you got Active or Passive Ventilation installed
  • If Ridge Capping was installed
  • If an Underlayment was installed
  • If a Drip Edge was installed
  • If an Ice & Water Shield was installed
  • How many pipe boots were installed, if any
  • How many layers of your old roof will be removed
  • If there was rotten decking was removed
  • What warranties you'll get with your roof replacement
  • How long your estimate is valid (typically 90 days)
  • A Right to Recession (for you to back out of using a contractor)
What should I know before hiring a roofer?
