Will My Insurance Rates Go Up If I File a Claim for My Roof?
This will depend on the situation at hand. There are laws that say insurance companies are not allowed to raise your rate for filing an “Act of God” claim, unless they raise the rates for everyone else in your zip code, too. When a large storm hits and causes damage to a high number of homes, insurance companies label the area as a “catastrophe zone” and they will raise your rate whether you file a claim or not.
Even if your rate does go up by $200 or $300 per year for the next seven years, you’re still coming out way ahead. At Camko Roofing, we want you to think of it this way: would you take a zero interest loan for seven years, with a payment of only a few hundred bucks per year for a new roof? If the answer is yes, then there’s nothing for you to worry about.
Will Camko Roofing Waive My Deductible for Me?
At our Huntsville roofing company, we install the absolutely highest quality roofs in the entire country. On top of the quality of installation and materials, we also provide you with protection and peace of mind by carrying Workers Compensation and general liability insurance coverage. When you file an insurance claim, all that we ask you to pay is your deductible. We choose to provide the best product and not compromise our principles by waiving deductibles. Additionally, it is a crime to waive a deductible and you and the contractor can be prosecuted for fraud.
How Long Will It Take to Install My New Roof?
Most of our roofing installations are completed in one day. For houses with very steep roofs or houses that are over 3,500 square feet, the installation may go over into day two.
Will Camko Roofing Clean Up After the Roof is Installed?
We offer a clean-up guarantee. During the installation process, we have a “ground guy” who is constantly cleaning the grounds as we go. We also cover your landscape, trees, and other surrounding areas with protective tarpaulin. Upon completion of the roof installation, all of the crew comes to the ground and performs a detailed final cleaning by inspecting all bed areas, gutters, bushes, fence lines, and everywhere else for roof debris and trash. Our crew then gets out rolling with handheld magnets and goes over the whole work area two times to ensure that there are no nails left behind.
Do I Need to Be Home While My Roof Is Being Put On?
Not at all. The roofing can actual be a little noisy inside the house with all of the hammering and nail guns on the roof. Each member of our crew has been through extensive background checks so there’s nothing for you to worry about. You may want to just plan a day away from the house and when you come home you will have a beautiful new roof.
Does Camko Roofing Warranty Their Work?
Yes. We have a standard five-year labor warranty that is provided and backed up by Camko Roofing. We also offer a non-prorated, 50-year System Plus Warranty that is fully backed by the largest roofing manufacturer in the world, Owens Corning Preferred Contractor.
Can Camko Roofing Help Me With Filing an Insurance Claim?
We are more than happy to come out and take a look at your roof and make a recommendation on whether or not to file a claim. If you do file a claim, we will handle the entire process for you, even coming to meet with the adjustor and negotiating with the insurer for fair replacement or repair value.
Is Camko Roofing Licensed & Insured?
Our Huntsville roofing company carries $2 million in general liability insurance and all of our installers are covered by a Workers Compensation policy. We are also licensed to work in Alabama and Tennessee.
What Type of Training & Education Does Camko Roofing Have?
Our officers and installers are Owens Corning Preferred Contractor certified, which means that we have met the strict knowledge and performance standards set forth by Owens Corning Preferred Contractor and they are comfortable with the fact that we know the best installation methods for your roof. Our management team is Steep Slope certified and has exhibited the know-how and technical expertise to install and repair your most valuable asset.
Does Camko Roofing Offer Financing?
Camko Roofing can finance your deductible, in-house, for up to 90 days. We also have preferred lenders that can finance your roof and all that it takes is about two minutes to fill out an application.
Should I Get a Metal Roof Instead of Shingles?
As a company dedicated to delivering the best roof for your home, we highly recommend shingle roofs. One big reason is that most metal roofing products are manufactured by small businesses that are there one day and gone the next. There is not a reliable warranty system in place if your roofing fails to perform as it is supposed to. Secondly, contrary to popular belief, metal roofing requires ongoing maintenance that shingles do not require. Every screw that goes on a metal roof to attach it to your house has a small “waterproof seal ring” around it. These seals do not usually hold up well to UV rays or temperature swings. Once they begin to dry out and crack, they are no longer waterproof and you are left with thousands of holes in your roof that are not covered by any other material. On top of this, metal roofs need to be cleaned every year or they will look very dirty and unattractive.
