Why clean your gutters? Gutter cleaning is an essential maintenance for any property! Dirty gutters can cause just as much damage as no gutters at all affecting both the foundation and roof structures of a property. It is vitally important to improve the water flow and reduce pest population. Failure to clean your gutters regularly can result in water damage and filthy debris build up. In most locations, it’s typically recommended that gutters be cleaned once a year in the spring and fall. If your lot is very heavily wooded, you may consider cleaning more often. Neglecting your gutters can be a costly mistake!
While cleaning your gutters Repair King will also take care of any repair or replacement needs you may have with your gutters.* *Including, but not limited to, adding sealant where needed, re-nailing loose nails/clips, replacing small sections of gutter, adding extension, as well as any other repairs small or large.
A little bit of prevention is much better than a whole lot of cure!
Having a roof maintenance plan with Repair King in place can extend the useful life of any roof, siding, as well as protect the contents of the building. Because of this, roof preventative maintenance makes good economic sense. We all know minor problems can cause potentially much larger problems, which in turn become more costly. They are stressed daily by the natural elements of our climate; along with the natural aging process that each roof system goes through.
Preventative maintenance of low-sloped and flat roofs can extend the roofs life expectancy. Lack of proper maintenance is one of the main causes for flat and low-sloped roof failures.

No, getting a lower priced roofing estimate won’t put money in your pocket. Your insurance company won’t release all of your money until the job is completely done and they will receive a final invoice from your contractor. Your insurance company will retain any of the money saved; it will not be dispersed to the homeowner. Also, finding the lowest price only gets you a cheaper job. If you choose a roofing company that charges less than “fair market price”, you may be setting yourself up to get inferior materials, less than quality labor, lack of service after the sale, or all three! Your insurance company keeps the savings. Besides, the insurance company issued the funds for a certain purpose. If they are not used for the purpose intended you may be gambling with insurance fraud. This is why we work for the Insurance Proceeds instead of issuing our own estimate.
It is important to choose a contractor that, is fully licensed, fully insured, knows the local codes, preferably is an registered with the Better Business Bureau, offers a Workmanship Warranty, and most importantly will go the extra mile to ensure your 100% satisfaction.
Most insurance companies will allow up to one year when placing your claim. However, some insurance companies have a statute of limitations as few as six months for placing a claim!
This claim is considered an “Act of God” or Natural Disaster under your insurance policy and should not count against you for future rate increases.
The homeowner should be at the home during the Insurance Adjustment. Also, it’s proven to be helpful to have the contractor there also to have another set of experienced eyes with professional experience looking out for your best interest. Most states often suggest that you have someone there with you at the time of your adjustment for additional representation. For example, the Colorado Department of Insurance recommends that your roofing contractor be at your home when your insurance adjuster arrives to inspect your property for damage. Adjusters are human. They are very busy and may inadvertently miss something or overlook an important aspect of your claim.
Legally, you can not do that. Of course, a roofer in collusion with a homeowner can submit falsified invoices. However, doing so is insurance fraud. We often hear stories of other companies doing just about anything to get business. Repair King will NOT this. It is, however, legal to offer compensation for a service provided by the homeowner such as coupons, advertising allowances and referrals.Please ask your Repair King representative for details.
When your insurance company agrees to pay your claim, they will cut a first check that is a partial-payment. This check is the total amount they are paying for your claim minus your deductible and depreciation. Often, the first check will be co-endorsed to your mortgage company if it is over $5,000. If your check is co-endorsed, you’ll need to get a signature from your mortgage company and deposit the check in your bank before starting work. If your check is not co-endorsed to your mortgage company, simply deposit in your local bank. Your bank may or may not have a policy of holding insurance funds for 7-10 business days. The second check with the remaining amount of depreciation is usually only cut after you or your contractor submits a final invoice after completing the construction on your home. These funds are to pay the contractor to cover material and labor for your claim.
If you do not use all of your depreciation to get your home fixed, your insurance company will subtract your deductible from the final lower-priced invoice rather than the total claim originally allowed. “In other words, your insurance company will keep any depreciation monies you didn’t spend while getting your home fixed.” We highly suggest simply using the insurance money for the purposes intended.
Depreciation is the amount of money withheld from you until all work is completed. By withholding depreciation, your insurance company ensures that they only pay the balance after the funds are used for the construction listed on your Insurance Scope. If you do not spend all of the money allowed, your insurance company keeps the difference and pays the balance.
Many adjusters will use industry standard software to estimate the associated cost for your project. It’s an estimate because it’s not always exactly accurate. Different regions have different pricing, sometimes humans make errors, and the Scope of Work may be disputed if inaccurate. Also, pricing often changes with the cost of materials. We like to negotiate with the insurance companies and represent you in these matters. Sometimes setting up a meeting with your contractor and your adjuster can me the effective for coming to an agreement. Other times, it may be a decision that is made above their head and may take time to process. Usually most issues are resolved between the insurance company and your contractor. If things still aren’t resolved, you may want to review your policy and find out how to resolve disputes
With an inspection of your existing roof by a professional contractor, you should be able to determine the condition and approximate years of service that’s left, plus if your home is under 10 years old it probably has the original roof, therefore determining the age.
Often there are numerous discontinued or defective products out there that were used years ago. Our Repair Kings are experts on identifying some of these products and are knowledgeable on how you may get the roofing system you deserve.
Based on 1800 sq. ft. you would need 432 square inches of net free vent area. That would translate to 4 standard 12″x 18″ roof vents or 5 12″ turbines or 35′ minimum ridge vent.
If your home is 20 or more years old and no one has checked the blown attic insulation and you have higher than normal electric bills, you may need to add insulation or replace an old underperforming A/C unit.
