95% of all Roofing Repairs or New Roofs are Insurance Claims. Therefore, it is important to Contact Us Before the Insurance Company to help you determine your Roofing Needs. All of our field estimators are skilled in finding wind or hail damage on Commercial and Residential properties.
An accurate assessment will determine the following options:
Insurance Claim for an Entire Roof
No Damage at All!
If in fact you do have damage to warrant insurance involvement, we will help you throughout the entire claims process by:
Helping you file the claim
Meeting with your insurance adjuster on site to ensure that all the damage is paid for
Filing any paperwork related to your claim
File a Claim
Contact your Insurance Company through their claims department. Inform them that your property has sustained damage and give them the type of damage (hail, wind, etc.) and the DATE OF LOSS. At this time, let them know that a professional LookUp Roofing contractor has examined the property and who that contractor is. Your insurance company will give you a Claim Number at this time. Write this number down and provide it to your contractor for reference.
Insurance Adjuster Meeting
An Insurance Adjuster will Contact You within 48 hours of making a claim to schedule an appointment at your property. Inform them of the contractor you have selected and that you would like LookUp Roofing to be present for the inspection. Confirm to LookUp Roofing the date when your insurance adjuster will visit the property so we can meet with them during inspection. We will discuss damages to your roof and the type of work needed to repair your home. This includes all measurements, pricing, and any code upgrade requirements necessary to bring your property back to its original condition before the storm.
The Insurance Company will send you a Loss Summary Report containing a list of damages and the proceeds associated. Along with the summary will be your first installment check called ACV (actual cash value payment). It is important to review this with your LookUp Roofing Contact to insure that it's complete and accurate. At this time, you will determine repairs to be made and products to be installed.
Actual Roof Installation
**Most Roof Replacements take only One Day to Install**
Remove all Old Existing Shingles - discards are placed in a dump trailer and hauled away to an approved landfill
Replace or Repair Bad Decking or 1"x6" boards, whichever is applicable to your roof.
Install Ice & Water Shield - Used as an underlayment to protect sloped roofs from water penetration due to wind-driven rain and water back-up resulting from ice dams
Apply Underlayment - Building codes and shingle manufacturers all require the use of a roof underlayment, such as an asphalt roof felt paper or synthetic
Apply Shingles - starting at eaves and working upwards
Apply Flashing around chimney, stack vents and pipes to deflect water away from seams and joints
Install Ventilation - installed at the peak of a sloped roof which allows warm, humid air to escape a building's attic
