FAQs

Hail and wind damage is an insurable loss, and your insurance carrier is legally obligated to return your property to its condition prior to experiencing the loss. Since installing used shingles is not an option, this means installing a new roof!

Here are some important FAQs that you might already have in mind:

Will my premium go up?
What will it cost me?
If insurance does not cover the cost, am I still obligated to purchase a new roof?
What if sheathing or decking is damaged?
What is the difference between 3-tab and architectural shingles?
Do I have to pay to upgrade?
Can I choose a new color?
Are you licensed and insured?
Are you part of the Better Business Bureau?

Will my premium go up?
No. Hail or wind damage is considered an act of God and/or out of your control. Unless you have made a significant number of claims to your insurance company, you can’t be singled out for a rate increase. However, your rates may still increase if everyone’s rates increase due to a significant number of storms over a year.

What will it cost me?
You, as a policy holder, are responsible for your deductible plus any approved upgrade costs.

If insurance does not cover the cost, am I still obligated to purchase a new roof?
No. Our policy is to replace a roof only if your insurance approves the entire roof. If the claim is not approved and you still would like to replace your roof, we will provide you with an estimate.

What if sheathing or decking is damaged?
We will replace as needed, after approved by the homeowner. Weathers Exteriors will replace the first three sheets for free and charge $35 per sheet for each additional sheet of " OSB. This fee approximately represents the costs of the material and labor. We normally use " OSB, but can use " plywood for $45 per sheet upon request.

What is the difference between 3-tab and architectural shingles?
Generally, architectural shingles (sometimes called dimensional, laminated or composite) are almost 50% heavier than regular 3-tab and are layered, giving them a three dimensional look. In contrast, 3-tab shingles have a flat, single-layer look. Because architectural shingles are heavier, they provide better resistance against damage due to strong wind. They have a 10-year, non-prorated lifetime warranty.

Do I have to pay to upgrade?
No. We offer a free upgrade to lifetime architectural shingles for displaying our small sign in your yard. This allows neighbors to see that Weathers Exteriors is working on your roof, potentially providing an opportunity to earn their business. However, ventilation upgrades will cost extra.

Can I choose a new color?
Absolutely! We will bring sample boards with actual shingles to help you decide.

Are you licensed and insured?
Yes. We will provide documentation upon request. Are you part of the Better Business Bureau? Yes. We are an accredited business with the BBB and you can look us up at www.bbb.org.
