Work With Our Georgia Roofing Company and Insurance Is A Snap!

_

What do people say is the worst part about getting a new roof? It’s not necessarily the sound of the roof being put on, because we take care of most of that when our customers are at work. And it’s not necessarily picking out the right kind of roof a roofing company offers; getting something new is fun, and if you don’t want any changes then the decision is a snap. Oh, and it’s not the clean-up. We do such a good job with that that most people never say a word about the mess.

No, the part of getting a new roof that most people complain about most is having to deal with the insurance company. Now, how should insurance companies work? You should submit a claim and they should pay it, but unfortunately too many of them fight claims. Too many of them will try to underpay, even though you might have been paying on your home insurance for 20 years and just experienced the hail storm of the century.

That’s why you should work with our roofing company, no matter whether you need substantial roof repairs or an entirely new roof. Insurance isn’t something you should have to fear, so we take care of nearly every aspect of the insurance claim for you. Here are some ways in which we can help.

We’ve Worked With All of the Major Insurance Companies

Don’t worry, we’re not going to barge into your insurance agent’s office and throw a huge stack of papers at them, demanding that they pay right at that moment. We’re certainly not going to harm your relationship with your insurance company or embarrass you in any way.

In fact, we want to be nice. You catch more flies with honey, as the old saying goes. And in fact, most of the insurance companies know us pretty well, and we’ve become friendly with some of the adjusters. They know that we’re friendly, but we’re not going to back down if they’re trying to undercut you. Speaking of which…

We’ll Fight For What Your Insurance Covers

Unfortunately, some insurance companies will simply deny claims — either all or part of them — the first time it comes in. They think that you don’t know exactly what your insurance covers, and hope that you just go away. It really doesn’t cost them anything to say no. It will cost you if you take their first off, though.

That’s not the way it should be, but unfortunately that’s the way it often works. But, as we just said, we’ve worked with all of the major insurance companies and they know we’re not going to go away easily. When they see us coming, they might not run the other way, but they know that we know what’s owed for the roof replacement or repair. In this case, they’re a bit less likely to try to pull anything, because trying to do so would be wasting their own time.

You Have To Do So Little

It’s actually kind of amazing how little you have to do when you get the help of a good roofing company to deal with your roof. After all, it’s your house…shouldn’t you have to answer a lot more questions.

You’d be surprised. Yes, there will be some questions from your insurance company, such as confirming which roofing company you want to go with. But you don’t necessarily have to be there on the day that the adjuster meets with the roofing agent, and you don’t have to file out a lot of paperwork. In fact, you don’t even have to be there on the days we’re putting on your roof!

Why do we work so hard for you? Well, to be honest, we’ll take care of all of that because we want your business! (Which is, in some ways, the insurance’s business.) We’re more than happy to perform one of our specialties — working with the insurance companies —  in order to be the ones to take care of your roof

We Know What Your City Requires

Every city and state has different requirements when it comes to roof repair or replacement. While one city says that a particular addition is needed in order to keep things up to code, a nearby city might say that it’s not needed for code.

Unfortunately, many adjusters —  the kind that work remotely, not the ones we meet on site — are out of state when it comes to national insurance agencies. They have a basic list of what will be covered by their insurance company, but because they’re so far away they have no idea of what local code says.

Who knows what the local code says? Your local roofing company. That’s because we work in so many cities and towns throughout Georgia, and we’re up-to-date on up-to-code.

We Can Still Get You Upgrades

Don’t worry, we’re not going to the insurance company to demand that you get a new tile roof with frame reinforcement if you had asphalt shingles before.

But when you work with an insurance company, it’s important to remember that you don’t have to get exactly what you had before. If you decide that you want to upgrade, we can help you upgrade! Since you’ll be getting enough back to cover a standard roof, now is the time to get an even nice one if you choose.

Convinced That Roofers Are The Way To Go?

There’s one type of person who might decide to not work with a roofing company and have them work as liaisons in order to get the new roof on. And that person is simply someone who likes to argue! If you’re the kind of person who knows their insurance plan inside and out, and you really like doing paperwork and arguing with other people, then you might not want us to handle your claim.

The fact is, even people who work in insurance decide to let us handle everything. After all, we have the expertise in both insurance in and roofing to make sure that every “I” is dotted and every “T” is crossed, so why should they waste their time. Our insurance services are essentially free, so there’s really no need to waste your time.

If you have a roofing claim you need to make, we look forward to hearing from you. Contact us today to learn more!

Why You Should Do Your Research Before Hiring a Roofing Contractor

Here at RRG, we’re very proud of the roofing services we provide to the people of northern Georgia. As roofing contractors, we work hard to provide our customers with the best roofing possible, whether they’re in need of simple roofing repair or a complete new roof installation.

Unfortunately, there are some roofers out there who don’t take quite as much pride in their work as we do here at Roofing Resources of Georgia. We’re sure you’ve heard horror stories from a neighbor who hired someone who knocked on their door and offered contractor work, only to be taken for a ride or left with shoddy work. It is for just that reason that you should always do your research when hiring a roofing company. Here are just a few of the reasons to be careful.

Quality Is Paramount

Let’s start off with one of the most obvious reasons you should look for the best roofer around: quality workmanship. Getting poor roof installation can actually be worse than getting no roof installation at all. For instance, your old roof might have been protecting your house better than a poorly-installed new roof. 

Get the Speed You Need

As we’ve mentioned many times before, we always put our customers first. That means not only providing them with quality, but also making sure that we’re installing the roof as quickly as possible. No one wants an unnecessary amount of pounding on their roofs, or to have the mess of a discarded roof in their yard for an undue amount of time. Our roofers will ensure that your new roof goes on quickly so that you are inconvenienced as little as possible.

Up-to-Code Avoids Problems Down the Road

There are local codes for a reason: weather isn’t the same throughout the country. Having worked in the area for so long, the roofers at Roofing Resources of Georgia are familiar with meeting or exceeding code. Violating local codes could cause problems with leaks or drainage, and it could make your home harder to sell when the time comes.

Cheaper isn’t better!

When you are searching for a contractor, keep in mind that cheaper is not always better. Most of the time if a contractor is cheaper, then there is a reason behind it! There are plenty of contractors out there who do not keep the proper insurance, they use the cheapest materials, and use shoddy crews to put the roof on. These offers usually don’t come with ANY KIND OF WARRANTY as well. So when you receive a quote that looks like it is too good to be true, it likely is. 

Roofing Resources of Georgia is a Platinum Preferred Contractor for Owens Corning. That puts us in the top 1% of roofers in the nation. That also requires us to keep the proper insurance, hire the best crews, and use the best materials on your home.

Go with RRG!

One of the best ways to ensure you’re getting the right roofing contractor is to research them online. You can always take a look at our testimonials, but another excellent way is to simply take a look at our Google reviews. You’ll notice that we have quite a high rating because we treat our customers right.

If you’re convinced that working with RRG is the way to go, we’d love to hear from you. Contact us here and we’ll get right back to you to address your needs.

Top 5 Reasons People Call A Roofing Contractor

 

Roofs are one part of the house that people just don’t think about that often. Once you build your house and get new roof installation or get a roof replacement put on your existing house, you can go for years without thinking about it. And even though you might catch a glimpse of it every day as you pull into the driveway, you’re probably much too distracted to really give your roof much thought.

There are certain times when you really should start thinking about your roof, because putting it off can cause a lot of problems (if they haven’t started already). Let’s take a look at a few of the reasons you’ll want to contact a roofing contractor.

You Find a Shingle

Even if you just had the conversation at breakfast about how windy it was last night, you’re probably still pretty surprised to open the garage door and find a shingle in the driveaway. The first thing most of us do is to get a good view of your roof from the street, hoping that it blew in from the neighbor’s house! If it did, be sure to let them know that they lost a shingle and need some roof repair. But if you see that it came from your roof, it’s time to give Roofing Resources of Georgia a call.

There’s a Huge Storm

We’re no strangers to storms here in this part of Georgia, so roofs are sometimes threatened by strong winds and heavy rains. Sometimes these storms will further degrade aging shingles, while other times the winds are so strong that they simply rip them off and leave them lying in your yard.

After a big storm, it’s a good idea to check your roof. You don’t even have to get up on it; just get out a pair of binoculars and look for anything that looks like damage. Or you can just have us take care of it for you, because we offer free inspections. If you end up needing roofing repair or new roof installation, we can even work with your insurance company to get it taken care of.

There’s a Huge Hail Storm

While a big storm might roll through the area, it doesn’t always mean that it’s going to leave a lot of roof damage in its wake. But hail? That causes people to call roofing contractors more than anything else.

Hail can cause damage in many ways. The primary damage is often done to the shingles themselves, as hail of any size can break away the surface granules and show the underlying layers of the shingles. Hail is also notorious for damaging the flashing, vents, and fans that

Of course, there’s one type of roof that suffers from hail damage more than another other: an old roof! That’s why you should call if…

Your Roof Just Turned 20 Years Old

If you have a metal roof or a tile roof, then you probably don’t have to worry about your roof turning twenty years old. But if you have 20-year-old asphalt shingles, you’re going to want to start thinking about getting a roof replacement before too long. After all, the roof has been outside day and night for 20 years, holding up to the weather, the UV radiation, the cold and the heat. No wonder it’s getting worn!

Most asphalt shingles are made to last around 20 years, at which point they start to deteriorate quickly. It’s a downward spiral, as the weather we mentioned above does more damage, which causes the singles to lose more of their integrity, which ends up causing more damage. Before it gives out in a way that might compromise the interior of your house, it’s a good idea to call a roofing contractor to start the process of getting a new roof.

You Find a Leak

Though we’d never recommend it, it’s easy to put off roof replacement. “After all,” you might think, “it’s held up for 20 years, what’s another six month before I call for some roofing services?” But then comes the day that you find a leak, whether it’s in your attic or it’s staining your ceiling.

Leaks can lead to many horrible problems in a home. Beyond aesthetic problems like spots on ceiling, water can also cause mold and mildew to grow in attics. This could invite black mold, which is a major allergy concern for many people, cost thousands of dollars to clean up, and make a house difficult to sell. Leaks can also damage wiring if the water gets into the walls, and it can compact insulation so that it no longer does the job it was meant to do.

Don’t Wait!

Don’t wait for a leak before you call a roofing contractor. At the first sign of damage, you should find someone to perform roofing services for you before things get worse, contact Roofing Resources of Georgia.

Welcome to Roofing Resources of Georgia, Your Roofing Experts!

We’d like to thank you for stopping by Roofing Resources of Georgia’s new and improved website. We specialize in roofs and that’s all we do, because we wanted to do one thing and do it right.

Roofs in Georgia are under a lot of stress. There’s the direct heat from the sun, the humidity that’s affecting the tack, and the numerous storms we get throughout the year. That’s why it’s important to keep on top of your roof repair and realize when it’s time for new roof installation. Let’s take a look at how we here at Roofing Resources of Georgia can help you.

Roof Installation

It would be great if roofs lasted forever, but they just don’t. For the average asphalt shingle roof, they’re going to start deteriorating quickly after about 20 years. At that point, it’s a good idea to start thinking about new roof installation.

Getting a new roof on isn’t something you want to put off once you start seeing signs of wear, because just a few missing shingles can lead to big problems on the inside of the house if the roof starts to leak.

When the time for putting on a new roof arrives, you have options. Let’s take a look at three of the most common types of roofs we install every day.

Asphalt Shingles

First, there’s the traditional asphalt shingle roof, which is the common type of roof in the country. This is what people think of when they hear the word shingles. Shingles are made from asphalt and the surface granules, and after about 20 years these start to wear away and expose the lower layers of the shingle to the elements.

At Roofing Resources of Georgia, we can help you find that perfect shingle for your roof. Maybe you want to replace them with something similar to what was there before. You could also choose to replace them with a higher-quality shingle that will last longer. We’d love to talk with you about your options.

Metal Roofs

While metal roofs were once the roofing choice of businesses, they’re becoming more and more popular on homes. Metal roofs are made from either aluminum or steel, and it takes special training to learn how to install them.

Why would someone choose a metal roof? Metal roofs are an excellent option because they last so long, up to 50 years. While they’re more expensive to install, they’re usually cheaper over the life of the house and the roof. Some people also like the options because metal roofs will be recyclable at the end of their life, while traditional asphalt shingles will simply head to the landfill. Also, metal roofs can reflect the heat better and create a barrier between the house and the roof itself.

Tile Roofs

Tile roofs look amazing when they’re on, and they are the roof of choice for some specific house styles. Many tiles are so hard that they’ll actually outlast the house itself, perhaps lasting 100 years or more. Tiles can also help with regulating the temperature of a home.

Tile has a couple of restrictions, though. First of all, it is more expensive than traditional roofs, but considering how long it lasts it can be cheaper over the years. Second, the tiles of tile roofs are incredibly heavy, which means that the house’s roof needs to have extra reinforcement put in the attic in order to hold the weight.

Roof Inspections

Like we said before, Georgian roofs are put through a lot throughout the year. There’s the heat and the humidity, the winds and the storms, the hail and even occasional ice. And, of course, all of those put together over time will break down the shingles on the average roofs. Even newer roofs can give out of the winds get too high, or, worst case scenario, if a tornado passes nearby.

That’s why we offer free roofing inspections to let you know just how much time and elements have worn down your roof. If we find problems, we’ll let you know about them and what you can do from there. We can even talk with your insurance agency to see if they’ll take care of the roof repair (or even roof replacement) for you.
