FAQ: ROOFING AND SIDING QUESTIONS

Do I need to be home when you are installing my roof or siding?

No, although we do need access to an electrical outlet.

What if it rains while you are installing my roof?

We watch the weather closely and only remove what we can replace the same day. We also carry tarps for unforeseen emergencies. Your roof will be water tight before we leave.

How long will it take to install my roof or siding?

Roof replacements typically take 1-2 days depending on the size. Siding jobs can range from 2-10 days.

MN STORM DAMAGE QUESTIONS:

How soon should I have my house inspected after a Hail Storm or Wind Storm?

Keep in mind that there could be hidden damage not visible from the ground. To avoid possible leak damage it would be best to have us inspect your property sooner rather than later. Insurance companies limit the amount of time to file a claim in Minnesota (usually one year). Since Hail and Wind Damage may void existing product and labor warranties, it may be best to file an insurance claim without delay.

 

Do you work directly with my insurance company?

Yes, one of our trained professionals will meet with your insurance adjuster, review your insurance scope (description of claim), negotiate on your behalf, and invoice your insurance company when your job is complete. There will be no out of pocket cost to you except for your deductible and any agreed upon upgrades that you request.

 

Won’t my insurance rates go up if I turn in a claim?

Storms that are large enough to cause hail, wind and fallen tree damage will usually affect large areas. In this case the rates will usually go up for the entire state. Thus, your rates could go up whether you turn in a claim or not. It’s probably better to file a claim than to live with both un-fixed damage and higher insurance rates.

MISCELLANEOUS QUESTIONS

Do you provide a dumpster?

Yes, but we usually use trailers instead of dumpsters to reduce the amount of down time.

Do you cleanup?
