You’ve probably seen their great commercials about all the different types of insurance claims Farmers handles. In fact, a damaged or destroyed roof might seem rather mundane. But, as their commercials and website convey, they know it can be very unsettling for the homeowner to set right.
If your home suffered roof damage during last week’s storm, you aren’t alone. Northern California wanted rain to end the drought. But no one ordered what the NY Times called, the bomb cyclone and atmospheric river event, as two storms converged, creating winds that looked more like a Category 4 hurricane.
Getting a new roof is an expensive proposition. First, you need to find the best local roofer, someone with a solid reputation, a history in your community and good references. Someone you can trust. Scammers and inexperienced operators are out there.
