Frequently Asked Questions
Most insurance claims cover structural damage caused by wind, hail, fire, and falling trees. This coverage includes your roof. Depending on your policy and claims adjustor, coverage may include replacement and/or repair and your policy may require you to pay a deductible. Some policies also include exclusions for certain causes or conditions.
AMI is happy to put in the effort to meet with your claim’s adjustor and take before and after photos of your roofing project. Depending on who is responsible for payment AMI can save you time by providing a copy of your invoice directly to your insurance company if provided with the contact information. Progress on your roofing or gutter project will be available at your convenience for you to view, download, or accept electronically, from your personalized job web page.
Not all leaks necessitate a full roof replacement, so whether you repair or replace your roof will likely depend on the extent of the damage to your shingles, metal panels, and decking. On a relatively newer roof, we can usually match your shingle color and brand and replace a few damaged or missing shingles along with any sheets of rotted decking that we find.
It may be cost-effective to consider a quick repair, unless it is time or nearly time to invest in a whole new roof. If the damage is sizeable and involves an entire slope, an older roof or has multiple layers of shingles hiding underneath, an entire slope or a whole new installation is likely in order.
The cost of a new roof depends on design, size, pitch, and the type of materials used, as well as the price of labor in your area. Chimneys and skylights also affect the overall price of roofing. Be sure to factor in disposal costs for your old roof.
Most roofing companies offer free, no-obligation quotes.
Green and black stains on your roof are evidence of algae, moss, or lichens. They’re common, particularly in wet and humid climates, and should be cleaned regularly to avoid the rot, mold, and water damage that they can cause.
The roof installation process can range from a day to a few days depending on the size and shape of your roof, the selected materials, and the size of the roofer’s crew. A roofing contractor should be able to provide a comprehensive time line, although Inclement weather may delay installation.
We always keep our eye on the weather throughout the week and first thing early each morning. Our constant attention to the weather helps us avoid leaving your roof open to the elements. Our roofing crew is very efficient, so most residential roofs are completed to specs in one day, and during daylight hours.
