ROOF REPAIRS

The primary cause of roof damage is Hail and Wind.

Storm Damage that goes undetected can cause the roof to leak and possibly cause more damage in the future. Even if you are not experiencing leaks right now, you could still have significant storm damage that you are not aware of.


ROOF WIND DAMAGE

Strong winds can be very damaging to roofs and shingles. Wind Damage to a roof can come in many forms, from a single shingle that needs to be replaced to an entire roof being blown off a structure. Wind damage will cause the shingle to break the original seal of the shingle. Many homeowners think if the shingle is not missing that they do not have wind damage. This is not the case. Be sure to have one of our experienced technicians give you your free assessment. Homeowners’ insurance policies often cover wind damage to roofs.


ROOF HAIL DAMAGE

Hail Damage to Asphalt Shingles occurs when the shingle suffers granule loss or bruising of the matting. Exposing the organic base center to ultraviolet rays can cause further deterioration of the material, shortening the life by up to 40%. Homeowners’ insurance policies often cover wind damage to roofs.

Using Homeowner’s Insurance for Roof Repairs

Roof repairs and roof replacements are often covered by homeowner’s insurance policies. Policies typically cover repairs caused by storm damage, wind or falling debris, not normal wear and tear. Beware of extremely low bids. Click the link below to see how lower bids usually cost the homeowner the same amount.

Filing a claim for your roof repair:

The Estimate and Fair Market Price

The claim paperwork you receive from your insurance company is not a final settlement. It is only an estimate for roof repairs.
Choosing a roofing contractor that quotes less than “fair market price” can be extremely risky. Prices that are too good to be true can indicate inferior materials, inexperienced roofers, bad quality work and/or no service after the sale. We have seen many customers get burned by door knockers, storm chasers, and fly-by-night companies. Protect yourself and protect your home by choosing a reputable contractor.

The Claim Check

The first check is usually only enough for your contractor to purchase materials and begin the project. This check may be co-endorsed to your mortgage company. If it is co-endorsed, you will to need to have your mortgage company endorse it and then deposit the check into your own personal account. If your check is not co-endorsed, you can simply deposit it at your bank. Once work is completed, we will submit the proper paperwork needed to your insurance company so that they will release the final portion (depreciation) of payment to you. You’ll receive the first check upon claim approval and the second (final payment) once the work is complete.

Depreciation

Depreciation is money delayed by your insurance company and not paid until the proper paperwork is submitted to prove completion of project. Most policies cover full replacement cost minus your deductible. Your insurance company may want to do an inspection before releasing the depreciation check.

Supplemental Claims

Supplemental claims are sometimes necessary if you are in an environment with rising material and labor costs, such as after a major catastrophe. Insurance companies will often agree to issue a check beyond the original claim to help cover increasing costs.

The Deductible

The deductible is the portion of the claim that is not covered by your insurance company. The deductible for your roof may be different from the deductible for other parts of your house, so check your policy to be sure.

Southern Star Can Help

While you’re responsible for your deductible, Southern Star Roofing will work with you to help you take care of your home. Even if you have a large deductible, we can help you get your roof repaired.

CONTACT US

Call us as soon as you detect any sign of a leak. This may include stains anywhere on walls or ceilings and especially around fireplaces and other roof penetrations, such as exhaust vents. The sooner you can address the leak, the less likely you will experience additional internal damage to sheathing and sheet rock or other building structure.

ROOFING TYPES
ROOFING TYPES

ASPHALT SHINGLES

3-Tab and Architectural style shingles are the most commonly used roofing material in North America mainly because they are economical and versatile, work well on steep-sloped roofs, are sunlight and weather resistant, require little-to-no maintenance and are reasonably priced. In addition, asphalt shingles are also easy to cut, fasten, and fit, as well as being compatible with many different kinds of flashing and edging products. While there are several types of asphalt shingles, at Southern Star Construction, we generally recommend architectural shingles because they are reasonably priced and offer great durability along with an extended warranty.

METAL ROOFING

Standing seam metal roofs have become enormously popular, and are especially suiting for homes located on lakes and mountain settings due to its longevity. Metal roofs are durable, fire-resistant, and provide an excellent strength to weight ratio which is why they are often used for very large buildings, stadiums, and other commercial structures. New metal roofing materials offer a stylish assortment of color and designs.

FLAT ROOFS / RUBBER ROOFS (EPDM AND TPO)

flat epdm rubber roof

EPDM and TPO are great solutions for those difficult low slope or even flat areas. These single ply roofing systems can be installed relatively easy over large or small areas. Flat roofs are increasingly common for commercial buildings, apartments, sunrooms, garages, porches, and even single-family homes.

TILE & SLATE ROOFING

Tile and Slate RoofingA tile is a manufactured piece of hard-wearing material such as ceramic, stone, metal, or even glass. Tile is a great roofing material for many reasons: it is strong, durable, and waterproof meaning that it isn’t vulnerable to rot as other shingles can be. Tile also offers great fire protection and comes in many shapes and colors for the artistic minded buyer. Tile and slate provide an aesthetic appeal difficult to match.

WOOD SHINGLES

Cedar shakes have long been a roofing solution that satisfies both requirements for beauty and durability in a roof. They are especially appropriate where historical preservation is a priority. Cedar shakes make a great roofing solution when rustic beauty and a natural appearance is the client’s priority.
