Question DetailsAsked on 10/12/2017

I need a tile roof repair. Is there a company near Punta Gorda, FL?

Hurricane IRMA loosened and detached some clay tiles on my roof. I need them put back in place or repaired. First, I need an estimate of the cost to submit to my insurance company.

Undoubtedly - Roofing is the Search the List category to find well-rated and reviewed contractors for this work in your area.

You can read a lot of previous questions with answers regarding issues with storm damage roof repairs in the Home > Roofing link under Browse Projects, at lower left. Manyu people have issues, especially with "storm-chaser" contractors coming to them (as opposed to ones they contact), who have them sign conditional contracts or committment to use them BEFORE the insurance company gives its claim adjustment There are also discussions about the advantages of having a contractor (who will obviouslyk expect some cimmttment from you for this) on-site with the adjuster to help prepare the claim and help ensure the adjuster includes all damage and associated work which needs to be done to effect the repair. Just be sure to read the fine print IN DETAIL, and be aware their normal first move is to get you to legally commit to using them on the job.

Some of the answers also discuss how insurance companies pay off on storm damage - deductibles and the difference between replacement-value coverage and amortized/depreciated coverage in particular, which can make a dramatic difference in the amount you pay out of pocket.

Also be aware of the federal 3-day cooling-off period (and some states have similar or more restrictive protections) on contracts signed at your home or as a result of an on-site sales call.
