Charlie Mike Construction is your local Roofing Contractor
It’s never a really good time to get your roof replaced but if your home has been through a hail storm or two it may be a good time to get it inspected. When it comes to roof repairs, roof replacement or roof installation it’s important to do your research before making a decision. Replacing your roof is a major ticket item and it’s one of the most important parts of your home that requires very little attention. Most home owners don’t think it’s time to fix or replace their roof unless it’s leaking but that’s not necessarily true. Today’s hail strikes may take 3 years to actually become a leaking hole in your roof but your insurance company only gives your a one year statue of limitations after the damaging storm date. This means you need to be proactive regarding your roof and Charlie Mike Construction is here to help you with this decision and make sure that you’re best interest is our priority.
Here are a few reasons why you should choose Charlie Mike Construction:
Free Roof Inspections
Deciding on whether you should file a claim on your home insurance is a delicate issue. Most contractors will instruct you to call your insurance because they can only win by the approval but you can lose if it’s not. If you’re roof is not approved for replacement however the fence, window screens, gutters or other items are, they will no longer be insured under your policy until they are fixed and the repairs could be under your deductible so you will have to pay 100% out of pocket. Shingles are made from fiberglass matting with a cover of asphalt on both sides and then a granual mixture on the top. When hail strikes your roof, it will break the fiberglass matting and then over time the granuals will become loose and fall into your gutter. This is what contractors are looking for and Charlie Mike Construction knows exactly what they’re looking for.
Dedicated Roofing Crews
Don’t hire a contractor who will take your money and then hire a roofer (that they have never met or worked with) on Craigslist. That’s dangerous and can lead to some very expensive problems in your near future. Charlie Mike Construction has dedicated roof repair and roof replacement crews that only roof for CMC. This means you’ll have a team that knows how to complete the job correctly and has been doing so for years. We can handle all residential or commercial projects including two story steep roofs. Make sure you call Charlie Mike Construction to handle your roofing needs and get the job done right the first time.
If you buy your shingles from a surplus store or a discount warehouse than you may get a better deal on the materials. The problem with buying from places like this is your shingles will typically be made at different times or locations. Shingles need to have the same lot number and manufacture date on them so the color consistency is the same throughout the bundles. This is very commonly seen on roofs that have been repaired. You can tell the difference between the repaired shingles and the existing ones even though they are the same manufacture and same color selection but from made at different times. Charlie Mike Construction is a preferred contractor of Owens Corning and GAF products and buy directly from the plant.
Insurance Claim Assistance
When you’re roof get’s approved for replacement, that’s the best time to address supplemental items to your insurance adjuster. After the insurance scope of work has been created, it’s twice as difficult to get them to approve supplements for your home based on building codes and insurance regulations. It’s important to know that your contractor is by your side against the insurance company and not the other way around. Charlie Mike Construction has been supplementing insurance claims and making sure that our clients are getting the best available products and service without cutting corners.
When you hear about “limited lifetime warranties” that manufactures offer if you use their shingles, they come with stipulations. In order for your warranty to be valid, you need to have 3 products from the vendor on your roof. This means, the drip edge, pipe jacks, felt and shingles all need to be replaced and with the same company. Most contractors and now insurance companies will only replace items as needed but this only voids your warranty from the manufacture. We at Charlie Mike Construction replace every item on the roof whether it needs it or not because that’s what you’re supposed to do.
This has to be the most popular topic of conversation that takes place between home owners and contractors regarding their insurance claim. Deductible assistance is a very tricky and fine line that is crossed daily. Most contractors have no regard of the legal ramifications of potentially committing insurance fraud. There are legal and ethical ways to cover your insurance deductible through supplements and adjustments but only your reputable companies have the skills to pull it off. Charlie Mike Construction offers a staff that exclusively handles insurance claim follow ups and supplements and they’re ready to work for you.
