    Hail Damage Roof Restoration in Raleigh

    Roof Insurance Claim Raleigh NC

    William K answered his door on December 1, 2016 when the Authentic Restoration Sales Rep, Lance Mollison, knocked. Lance told William that Authentic Restoration was a top Roofing Contractor in Raleigh, NC. He offered a free roof inspection. William accepted.

    15 minutes later, Lance was showing William hail damage pictures. They discussed options, Mr. K decided to call in a claim to his insurance company. Lance stayed with Mr. K through the process in case he needed to answer any questions. Here are a couple of the hail damage pictures Lance shared with Mr. K. Obviously, a close up inspection on the roof is required to detect this type of damage.

    Hail Damage Insurance Claim Raleigh, NC

    Lance returned 2 days later to meet the Adjuster from Liberty Mutual. Lance showed the Adjuster all the hail damage on the roof. After the Adjuster agreed that a full roof replacement was in order, Lance reviewed the Xactimate estimate that had been prepared. Authentic Restoration is a roofing contractor in Raleigh that has great expertise in working with Liberty Mutual and other Insurance Companies such as State Farm, Metlife, Erie, Allstate and Nationwide.

    Mr. K chose to wait until after the holidays to start the roof build. Lance found a time convenient for Mr. K to view shingle samples. These were brought to Mr. K’s home to review. Tamko Heritage Rustic Black was the shingle chosen. Authentic Restoration is a Raleigh roofing contractor that works with all the major shingle manufacturers including GAF, Certainteed, Owens Corning and Atlas.

    Materials were ordered. The roof crew which has all the required General Liability and Workman’s Compensation Insurance was scheduled for the roof replacement. Lance met the crew at Mr. K’s home the morning the roof was to be replaced. The materials arrived the morning of the roof construction to minimize the inconvenience to our Customer. This was a fairly large roof, 43 squares.

    Roof Replacement Process

    The existing materials were removed down to the bare decking. Synthetic underlayment was installed instead of the traditional cheap paper felt. Ice & water shield was installed in the valleys to meet North Carolina State building code requirements. All shingles were installed using 6 nails instead of the required 4. This increases the wind rating by 20 mph. The job was completed in 2 days. Magnetic rakes were used to clean up all the nails and metal debris.

    Finished Roof Restoration

    Mr. K was delighted with Lance and Authentic Restoration. He is recommending Authentic Restoration as the best Raleigh Roofing Contractor to all his neighbors, friends and family. He was kind enough to make a video testimonial to describe his experience with Authentic Restoration.

    This was a challenging job to say the least. The majority of the roof was a 14:12 pitch, very steep. The house had been painted in the past year, we spent a day prepping and protecting the property for the roof demolition.

    Once the existing roof materials were removed, installation of the new materials began. A high-quality synthetic felt was installed as the underlayment. The Homeowner made a great choice in Shingles, the GAF Camelot II in Charcoal. This is considered an Ultra-Premium Designer Shingle with a limited lifetime warranty. Here are some more in progress photos.

    The final product turned out to be stunning! Great color choice by the Homeowner (Click to view larger images).

    “I want to thank Chris & the Team at Authentic Restoration for helping me get my roof replaced through my insurance company, State Farm. I have a large house that is very steep and dangerous. I had to make sure I found the right company that could handle this type of job. I also had interior damage from leaks and Authentic Restoration was able to get that approved as well by State Farm. I thank Authentic for their prompt service and attention to detail. The crew was great and I couldn’t be happier. If you’re ever in need of a roof, you should call Authentic Restoration!”

    Mountain Brook, Alabama Homeowners Install Stunning Synthetic Cedar Shake Roof

    Synthetic Cedar Shake

    Synthetic Cedar Shake

    Authentic Restoration is a Birmingham Roofing Contractor that specializes in roofing and has expertise in all popular roof materials. Authentic Restoration is the roofer of choice in Mountain Brook where the demands for quality and service are high.

    Authentic Restoration recently replaced the cedar shake on a beautiful home in one of the most prestigious areas of Birmingham, Mountain Brook, AL. We worked with the Homeowner’s insurance after the cedar shake sustained storm damage. The insurance approved a complete roof replacement except for the flat roof dormer on the rear elevation that had newer asphalt shingles installed. The asphalt shingle section was in good condition and was left in place.

    Synthetic Shake – Composite Cedar Shake Shingles

    Cedar shake shingles have been around for centuries. Unfortunately, they’ve improved little aside from the manufacturing process. Roofs covered by Cedar Shake rely on layers of split felt to shed water. For that reason, the Homeowners chose a synthetic composite shingle, the Brava Shake Tile. The Brava Shake Tiles provide the cosmetic beauty of wood shake but are a much more robust roof covering.

    This beautiful Brava Shake roof installed in Mountain Brook by Authentic Restoration required 44 squares of materials. When we removed the existing roof, we found wood slats. The entire roof was redecked with new roofing materials to comply with local building code and provide a high-quality nailable surface. Ice & water shield was installed in the valleys and high-quality synthetic felt was installed on the entire deck surface as to provide the perfect, leak proof roof.

    Shown below are a couple of pictures of the existing roof. It was in pretty rough shape.

    The crew worked very hard and did a great job of keeping this property cleaned up during the construction phase. Cedar Shakes do not compress, take up a lot of space and can be very messy during the roof demolition without a diligent effort. The Homeowners commented several times how much cleaner the crew kept the property compared to the previous roof replacement they had years ago. The tear off and construction was completed in 5 days which included a few work stoppages for rain.

    The finished product was absolutely gorgeous! Even better, the Homeowners were ecstatic with their new Brava Shake Tile roof from Authentic Restoration, the best roofing contractor in Birmingham and Mountain Brook.

    State Farm Denies Request to Replace Roof in Carmel, Indiana

    roof repair carmel indianaOur Customer in Carmel, IN filed a claim with State Farm for wind damage to his roof. State Farm denied the request to replace the entire roof, paying to repair the damaged shingles instead. The shingles on our Customer’s roof are no longer in production. Therefore, it was going to be impossible to find a suitable match for his beautiful home.

    We requested assistance from a neutral and competent third party roofing expert to attempt to repair a shingle. It was our belief that any attempts to repair the shingle would result in damage to the adjacent shingles that had to be lifted in the repair process. If this proved to be the case, these findings could very well result in State Farm reversing their decision. We decided to video tape the repair process in order to properly document and validate the results.

    The video below shows how the roofer carefully attempted to replace the damaged shingle. Despite his best efforts, the shingle above the damaged one tore in 2 places during the attempt. These existing shingles are so brittle it would not be possible to replace all the damaged shingles without creating as many or more damaged shingles.

    Authentic Restoration will make the extra effort to assist our Customers. If you’re in Carmel, Cicero, Fishers, Noblesville, Indianapolis, or Zionsville, Indiana and have missing or wind damaged shingles, contact Authentic for a free inspection. We’re the best roofing contractor for the job. One of our expert roof inspectors will get on your roof, inspect the damages, take damage photos and discuss your possibilities with you at no charge.

    Insurance Claim for Roof Replacement in Vestavia, Alabama

    Authentic recently completed a full roof replacement for this beautiful home in Vestavia. This was an insurance claim, State Farm approved their policy-holder for a complete roof replacement. This came shortly after Authentic provided a free roof inspection.

    Roof Replacement Type

    The Homeowner chose GAF Timberline HD 30 year dimensional shingles for the roof covering. Their choice of color for the roof replacement was Weathered Wood.

    This was a complete tear off down to the bare decking. No decking problems were found. Synthetic felt was installed as the underlayment. This is a far superior product to the 15 or 30-pound paper felt most roofers use in Vestavia for complete roof replacements. Ice & water shield was installed in the valleys and around all roof penetrations. All shingles were installed using 6 nails. This results in an effective 130 mph wind rating.

    Above are some “in process” construction pictures as well as a couple of completed roof install pictures. If you’re from Vestavia Hills or Hoover and are looking for the best roofing contractor in Birmingham, Alabama area, contact Authentic Restoration for a free roof inspection.
