When we posted our first blog about roof repair and replacement during COVID-19 restrictions in May, we hoped the pandemic would soon diminish. That hasn’t happened and roofs still need work. After area wildfires, active rebuilding is also underway. So how do crews work safely and efficiently during COVID to repair or replace your roof? By following the code, health and safety regulations.
Wildfires raging throughout California may have many homeowners checking with their insurance companies to see what their homeowners insurance actually covers. Roof repair and roof replacement are usually covered as part of the exterior damage portion of homeowners insurance.
Here a few factors to consider: 1) Your roof is old. 2) Materials usually last between 12 and 20 years, depending on climate conditions. 3) Maybe your roof has been reroofed before without removing the first layer of shingles. 4) You’ve looked up to see cracked, curled or missing shingles or experienced a leak or two on the inside of the house.
