Many home and business owners in the Orlando area don't think about their roof very often, until it starts leaking! And when it does they are posed with the question, repair or replace?
If your roof just started leaking and only affects a small portion, it may be possible to repair the damaged area. But if the damage is extensive and your roof is older, replacing may be a better choice.
Replacing or repairing your roof may not be an easy decision, but the professionals at Schick Roofing can help you make an informed decision, based on the damage, roofing material, and cost effective.
A roof inspection is the first place to start. But, unfortunately there are a lot of fraudulent contractors or scammers in Central Florida. The qualified roofers at Schick Roofing have the experience and knowledge to reveal the life expectancy of your roof, detect any weak areas, and go over any repairs that need to be repaired.
With strong winds, hail and possibly hurricanes on their way, don't fall victim to roof scams, consider these consumer tips by the Better Business Bureau.
* Be careful of any company that uses door-to-door sales or leaves a flier on your doorknob or in your mailbox, promising insurance compensation for repairs.
* Phrases to watch out for: "insurance companies are compensating" and "most homeowners are unaware of the storm damage on their roof."
* Look around your property before climbing on your roof. Is there hail damage to vehicles, siding or shrubbery? If not, damage to your roof is unlikely.
* The homeowner should be aware of which way the storm was moving. Many homes have roofs with various angles or pitches, which means that the angles facing the storm would receive the most damage.
“Fraud is as high as it’s ever been, because the scam artists are using brand-new channels and technology that didn’t exist 15 years ago,” says Martha Deevy, director of the Financial Fraud Research Center at Stanford University’s Center on Longevity.
