From time to time, manufacturers decide to change their product line because of the change of technology in the construction industry. They introduce new and improved materials that offer enhanced durability, energy efficiency and resistance to environmental factors. As a result, older and dated shingles may be phased out to make room for new and improved shingles.
We love living on the Coast, however, we know that living here also comes with some risks, especially when it comes to your roof. That’s why it’s essential to have a solid roof that protects your home against the elements such as rain, wind, hail and sun. Patriot Roofing takes pride in safeguarding against these elements and our most important concern is your roof and the people under it.
If you discover that your roofing shingles have been discontinued and you need to file an insurance claim, it’s crucial to communicate with your insurance company immediately.
First, speak to a qualified roofing professional, such as Patriot Roofing to assess the damage. Our Project Specialists will assess your roof to determine if your shingles are, in fact discontinued. Patriot will then be able to make a suitable recommendation for replacement materials and can help support your claim to ensure the replacement meets industry standards.
Secondly, refer to your homeowners insurance policy to understand the coverage for your roof damage or replacement. Some companies may offer a full replacement coverage, while others will have limitations. It’s important to be familiar with your policy. Contact your insurance agent for helpful guidance.
Third, Provide evidence of the discontinuation, including any official communication from the manufacturer. Be effective with your communication when speaking with your insurance company. Throughout the process, articulate in great detail the reasons why you need a roof replacement because of the discontinued shingles. It’s no fault of your own that the manufacturer discontinued your shingles, which means your insurance company must take action to rectify the problem, especially after a covered event.
