Atlanta Roofing Contractor
How to Choose an Atlanta Roofing Contractor
Atlanta residential roofing projects generally begin by getting an estimate for the cost of your new roof. Estimates can be provided by a helpful neighbor, a handy relative or licensed roofing professional. At Atlanta Roofing Guide, we offer written “bids” daily for all types of home repair, including roof repair and replacement. This is standard practice in our industry and helps to insure that you are getting “The Best Bang for Your Buck”
We need to point out that Atlanta Roofing insurance claims are different, and should be handled differently, from a remodeling project that may involve a roof replacement.

Your number one job when you need a new roof is to choose a qualified Atlanta roofing contractor who is licensed, insured and experienced.
After that, your work is done, and the process becomes simplified.
When you’re shopping for a new roof with an insurance claim, the insurance adjuster is the only person whose estimate really matters if you don’t want to run the risk of coming out of your pocket for a large portion of the cost of your new roof.
Here’s how it works –
A hailstorm, windstorm, or tornado generally causes major damage to roofs, siding, gutters, and more
Your insurance company will send an adjuster out to inspect the damage to your roof caused by the catastrophic event (hail damage, wind damage, storm damage, etc…)..
They are required to document the damage and calculate a fair price for the repairs.
The insurance adjuster sets the price for the work to be preformed based on “fair market value.”
Many adjusters are fair and are willing to pay for damage to your home.
Some adjusters that are inexperienced or part-time are called to duty in the wake of a big storm.
They may deny a claim or underestimate costs due to a lack of experience and/or knowledge.
Make sure that you understand that the insurance company’s adjuster is looking to obtain the lowest estimate possible to satisfy your claim for the damage to your home and to pay out the least amount possible.
Your insurance company may then request that you obtain several estimates to repair or replace your storm damage.
YOU need to be represented by your own expert Atlanta Roofing Contractor specialist.

You have the right to choose your Atlanta Roofing Contractor.
Atlanta Roofing Guide will work for the insurance proceeds set by your insurance company.
Here’s how the insurance settlement usually works…
If the insurance adjuster evaluates your home and agrees with a contractor on a price, a check will be written to you for 70% of the total cost.
30% depreciation of the total claim is held back until the project is complete.
Once the job is finished, your adjuster will only release the remaining 30% after receiving a FINAL INVOICE from the hired contractor as shown in the contract.
This is done to insure that you do not hire an Atlanta roofing contractor with a lower bid and try to pocket the difference you saved. So, if you had hired a lower priced roofing contractor, then the insurer will not send you any more money!
As a result, you have saved the insurance company money, and most likely received a lower quality of workmanship, leading to future roof problems that will not be covered by your insurance.
Like we said earlier, in the end, the adjuster is the only person who does an estimate that really matters on an insurance claim.
Therefore, it is crucial that we be present to represent you when they make their estimate so nothing is missed and all damage is accounted for.
As you can see, there is no need for you to get multiple estimates for your roofing replacement, IF you choose the right Atlanta roofing specialist in the beginning.
