Residential Roofer Cut Corners To Save Money & Time. Here's How

  • Residential roofing subcontractor and low quality roofing companies leave the builder grade tar paper underlayment. The problem with doing so is that tar paper holds in moisture which lead to premature deck rot. It is crucial to remove all underlayment and expose the entire roofs deck for a proper inspection.
  • Con-tractors will often times take money allowed by an insurance companies for items like gutters and fence staining and "apply" that towards your deductible. Most insurance companies underpay these items from the very beginning so rather then having the item done and be paid a proper amount, your roofing contractor took and underpayment and prevented you from having your whole property restored.
  • This is typically more the norm with storm chasers, but once or twice a year you hear the stories on the news about "a man who steals homeowners insurance checks and takes a vacation. Make sure the roofing company you want to do business with is local and has a nearby office location. Also check to make sure that address actually has employees onsite; roofing con artist are getting more clever with using crafty addresses disguised as an office to google.

Make Sure Your Roof Is Done Right

Above: 4 layers of tarpaper left on this roofs deck by the 4 companies that replaced this roof before us. For the last 40 years this roof has been installed poorly. We finally fixed it. The last contractor sold this owner a "Full" ice ad water shield system. They covered the whole roof in a peel and stick based product that we place in the valleys and at side wall flashings to prevent leaks. There is no measurable benefit of this in our region but we suspect it was a storm chaser because this is a popular method up north where ice damning causes water to back up under the shingles as ice and snow melts. Texas does not get much snow or ice which is why manufactures do not call for this in north Texas.

When companies leave felt paper like the photos above it make finding rotten decking and leaks impossible. When we replace a roof we take it all the way to the yellow deck to ensure that you have a smooth flat roofing system that will last you 20+ years. The decking on the Cedar Hill Texas home to the right was actually a repair that Allstate tried to deny. It took a lot of our time and additional meetings with the insurance company for us to explain the damage in a way that resulted in roof getting covered by insurance.

Before and after of a hail damaged fence. Most homeowners don't realize that their "weathered" fence is truly damaged from the weather. Your homeowners insurance generally owes you for all direct physical loss. Make sure your roofing contractor doesn't pocket the money that should be used to restore your ENTIRE property.
Hail damages gutters and lowers their resale value. These sharp indentions in the gutters a classic tell tale sign of hail damage to your home. Watch out though, many Texas property insurers are coming up with clever ways to underpay your claim including adding a "MARRED METAL" clause which states unless the hail put a physical hole through your soft metal, the insurance company doesn't actually owe you for them.

No matter what form of storm damage you have, you must make sure that your damage is properly assessed and your home is properly restored. When you need is down right, call 24-7 Restoration Mansfield, TX 682-999-8732
