The Texas Department of Insurance recommends that after your home has suffered a loss, you should take three very important steps.
» file a claim
» prevent the damage from getting worse
» begin to collect estimates
Final Cut Roofing and Construction, LLC can professionally assist you with every step of the process.
Insurance companies recognize two types of claims, peril, and hazard. Generally, wind storms, hail storms, lightning, and other catastrophes fall under the category of perils. These perils may not necessarily raise your premium and/or your insurance company may not necessarily cancel your policy. This is because there may have not been any steps that you could have taken to prevent them from happening. However, we recommend that you contact your insurance agent to discuss your policy.
After placing your claim, your insurance company is obligated to respond within 10 business days. If a loss has accrued, your insurance company must provide you with a portion of the expenses within 30 days. You have one year from the date of loss to file and/or collect all of your insurance proceeds. In some cases, your insurance company may allow a six-month extension with a written request. Insurance companies are eager to process your claim and close within 6 to 8 weeks depending on how fast you are able to make repairs.
Throughout the hot and cold seasons, your shingles expand and contract. This process can cause small gaps to form, the adhesive of the silicon to deteriorate, and your shingles to shed its granules. The result is that your shingles soften and/or weaken and become more vulnerable to storm damage. Generally, it’s best to have one of our licensed adjusters assess your roof every eight years.
Subject to city ordinance, we can begin work at 7 am and begin operating heavy machinery at 8 am. Our installers end their work half an hour before sunset. Typically, to remove and replace one layer of shingles on a one-story house will only take us just one day! Facing unexpected additional construction or large roof replacement projects will take no more than two days. This includes a thorough clean-up.
At Final Cut Roofing and Construction LLC, we are invested in the appearance and functionality of your roof for the life of its expectancy. We strongly discourage “Over-layering” due to the fact that this increases the weight of your roof dramatically. This can cause a tremendous amount of permanent, irreversible cosmetic damage to your roof or your attic structure.
Increasing the amount of proper ventilation in your attic can significantly reduce the cost of your utility bill and dramatically prolong the lifespan of your shingles. Our professional recommendation is solely based on the shape of your roof and your specific needs.
Hail Impact Resistant Shingles are designed to resist the effects of severe weather such as wind and hail. These shingles meet the Class-4 requirement which is set by the Underwriters Laboratories and the American Society for Testing and Materials. Some major insurance companies may offer a homeowner’s discount for using shingles that receive a Class 4 rating. Ask us for details about Class 4 shingles today or learn more about Qualifying Products for Impact Resistant Roofing at the Texas Department of Insurance.
The short answer is yes. To be detailed, soffit vents get dirty and clogged over years and should be replaced about every ten years. In most cases, when we remove a soffit vent we discover the hole the vent sits on was not adequate and the size needs to be increased. You wouldn’t know that if you don’t replace your soffit vents.
Depending on the size of your home, it can take us about 1 to 2 weeks for a full siding replacement. This includes prepping and painting which can take up a significant amount of time.
Yes, absolutely! High quality exterior paint is much more durable than ordinary interior bedroom paint. They’re design to withstand the elements of nature such high rain, dirty, and the sun’s harmful UV rays. Using the wrong paint will result in early cracking and peeling which can lead to rotting.
