Roof Damage Claim – How to File With Your Insurance Company

Anytime you are dealing with an insurance company there are certain things you need to do in order to get the results you want. Some are common sense tactics like don’t give unnecessary information. Others are not so common sense tactics like calling a roof restoration specialist before you call your insurance company.

Hiring a Good Roofing Company

The roof is an integral part of any home and should be taken care of whether in terms of repair for an existing roof or when building a new house. This is the one area that defines a house as it not only completes the appearance of the house but also serves as protection for other parts of the house and household items as well. Some people have fallen victim to “roofing experts” who are not experienced roofers and wound up with shoddy roof work.

Roofing Your Home – What To Watch For

You do not want to put IWS over the entire roof because rubber doesn’t breathe and the roof needs to breathe. Building code calls for ice and water shield to be installed on all eave edges to a point at least 24 inches inside the exterior wall line of the building. This works with 1 row of IWS if your eves/overhangs are 12″ but if they are 24″ 1 row of IWS will only bring you 12″ inside of the exterior wall line. I personally think 1 row of 3′ wide IWS is sufficient even if your eve is 2′ wide.
