Commercial Roof Replacement FAQs
Does insurance pay for commercial roof replacement?
Whether your insurance pays for a commercial roof replacement depends on how the roof was damaged. For example, it may cover the costs of storm damage. However, if you’re considering replacement because it’s time to update your facility’s roof, insurance typically won’t pay for damage caused by age and normal wear and tear.
What should I know before replacing my business’s roof?
If your roof damage was not caused by a storm, we highly recommend calling a roofing company before contacting your insurance company. Since insurance typically only covers storm-related damage, our team can evaluate the damage and offer you a smarter solution that won’t increase your insurance rates.
How long will it take to replace my business’s roof?
The time it takes to replace your business’s roof can vary. Typically, a Richmond or Georgia commercial roof installation takes three to fifteen days. However, size, scope, and roof material can shorten or extend that timeline. A SlopePro contractor can provide a custom estimate after an initial inspection.
Will a new roof damage my property or disrupt business?
If properly and expertly installed by a professional, your facility’s new roof will not cause damage to your property. SlopePro takes pride in our efficient commercial roof installations and extensive clean-up measures. Our team will respect your property and leave the area exactly how we found it and, as always, we are committed to a prompt and professional experience that won’t disrupt your business.
