We learned a few things from past storms and have an arsenal of qualified vendors who are practiced at navigating repairs/replacements for insurance claims in Duval, Clay and St. Johns counties.
Regardless of how “intact” the roof appears after the storm, if there is even one lone loose shingle or branch visible, it should probably be assessed/checked out after the storm. A professional roofer can tell us/an owner if there is any damage (especially not seen from the ground) that would warrant an insurance claim.
If such damage may result in consideration of a new roof, several things to consider and these are just a few:
- Vent ridges (what type)
- Shingles (what type)
- Peel & stick vs felt
When a new roof is all said & done, a wind mitigation & 4pt inspection should be conducted for submission to insurance carrier for possibly lowered premium.
