TIME TO REPLACE

1. Monitor the aging of your cedar shake roof

Cedar shake roofs are beautiful and have been known to last a long time.

Most homeowners, unfortunately, don't maintain and monitor the aging of their cedar roof. Here are the signs your cedar roof needs replacing

  1. Rusty nails - cause shingles to slide out.
  2. 30 lb Felt paper/underlayment has nails left behind from previous repairs.
  3. Cedar roof shingles are brittle.
  4. Previous repairs don't stop the water from coming inside of your house.
COVERED CEDAR ROOF CLAIM

Cedar roofs are very special and most insurance adjusters are not experienced with cedar roofs.
At Roofs ONE, our expertise with cedar roofs can help you with the insurance claim process.

2. Insurance Pays for Footfall, Hail, Wind, or Fire Damage

Foot Fall: Foot fall damage is accidental and it's caused by walking on the roof.
Insurance company will try to say that the damage isn't covered because it was a "maintenance" issue, but it is accidental.

HAIL: Hail damage breaks/splits the cedar shingles. Damage to the copper valleys is visible when chalk is rubbed on the surface to revealing hail indentation.

FIRE: Wind damage causes displaced cedar shakes usually around the hips and ridges.
There will also be missing cedar shingles. Verify details by reading the policy.

WIND: Wind damage causes displaced cedar shakes usually around the hips and ridges.
There will also be missing cedar shingles. Verify details by reading the policy.

REPAIRABILITY:
Cedar shake roofs are not the most repairable roofs. Additional damage will be incurred as people get on the roof to assess damage. Your insurance will most likely pay for a full roof.

The reason for full roof payment is because the insurer must be put into pre-damaged condition, and the only way to achieve this is for the insurance to pay for the entire roof. The Insurance might try to say that the damage is not "functional" damage. If this is the case, then there will need to be a policy review.
