Frequently Asked Questions:
Will My Homeowners Insurance Cover Roof Repairs?
Yes, many insurance plans will cover most roof repairs, but it does depend on your coverage and the type of damage your roof has. One thing you will want to check is if your policy is an RCV (Replacement Cost Value) or ACV (Actual Cost Value) policy. This will make a big difference in the final amount of money your insurance company pays for the damage. If you are not sure, you should ask your agent.

What Roofs Are Best For Commercial Buildings?
Commercial buildings tend to use roofs that help with water flow from rain, as well as roof types that require little maintenance. Certain types include low slope single ply membranes such as TPO and metal roofing are great options. It is important to not just think about your commercial roof as single product like TPO or metal roofing. As there are many other components that help keep the inside dry, such as drains, flashing or scuppers just to name a few. It should be thought of as a commercial roof system.
Does It Matter of The Type of Shingles I Choose?
Yes, the type of shingles you choose can have different material costs and can also effect the energy efficiency of your home or office building. In addition, certain types of roofing materials may qualify you for discounts of up to 30% on your home owners insurance. This is something that should be considered.
