We’ll Fight for Your Insurance Coverage

Homes in McHenry, IL, and the Chicagoland region frequently need storm damage roof repair. Unfortunately, most major insurance companies don’t care about the damage to these roofs. They make it difficult for homeowners to claim the coverage they should get.

We don’t want you to fight this losing battle. Instead, our in-house public adjuster will work to get you as much insurance coverage as possible in the event of a loss. We have already settled over 4,000 insurance claims across the country. Here’s how we’ll do it for you:

Evidence of storm damage on a residential roof

Step 1: Initial Assessment

A residential roofing contractor will come to your home and perform an initial assessment of your roof. This assessment will include video analysis. We’ll show you the video and explain what we’re seeing so that you can fully understand the situation.

Step 2: Explain Next Steps

Once the assessment is complete, we will tell you whether we think you qualify for a claim. If you do, we will walk you through the steps of the filing process. However, if you don’t qualify, we will still give you a free quote on your residential roofing project.

Step 3: Insurance Inspection

If your home does file a claim, we will meet with the insurance adjuster and present our findings when they come to inspect your home. In this way, we will work on your behalf to get you all the coverage you deserve.

Step 4: Agree to the Project

Frequently Asked Questions About Residential Roofing

Are you looking for helpful and honest residential roofing companies near you? Renowned Building Solutions provides honest service to meet all your needs. We’ve put together helpful answers to some important questions to ask as you consider what to do about your roof.

Don’t see your question addressed below? Please check out our FAQs page or call 844-736-6961 to get all the information you need!

Do I need roof repair or replacement?

There are two different types of residential roofing: roof repair and roof replacement. Roof repair involves fixing a damaged section of the roof. Roof replacement involves completely tearing off the old roofing system and installing a new one.

Repair is a good option when the damage to your roof is limited to one spot. For example, if you’re missing one section of shingles or a hole is causing your roof to leak, you will want to opt for roof repair.

Conversely, you need replacement if the roof damage is widespread, or the roof is multiple decades old. In these instances, roof replacement is essential for keeping your roof structurally sound.

Our team will help you determine which service makes the most sense for you. We provide both roof repair and roof replacement for homes throughout Chicagoland.

Has hail damaged my roof?

One of the most common ways roofs receive widespread damage is from hailstorms. That’s why it’s important to know what hail damage on a roof looks like. If you notice a random assortment of inch-wide dents on your roof, then there’s a good chance you’ve received hail damage. These dents are often soft to the touch and leave the underlayment exposed beneath the shingles.

You can also safely inspect for signs of hail damage from the ground by checking your siding and downspouts for dents.

How do I know if my roof is too old?

How often you should replace your roof will depend on the type of roofing material you have. Most roofs have asphalt shingles, which typically last 20-30 years before needing replacement. Other materials, such as residential metal roofing last significantly longer.

Warning signs your roofing system is too old include multiple missing or damaged shingles, a sagging roof and water damage or leaks inside the home.

Will insurance help cover my residential roofing project?

Insurance companies will usually help cover the costs of a new roof if there is sufficient evidence that a storm has damaged the roof. However, if the roof was not installed properly or is more than a decade old, then you probably won’t receive as much coverage.

The best way to get the insurance coverage you’re entitled to is to hire the best residential roofing company near Chicago. At Renowned Building Solutions, we have licensed public adjusters on staff who can thoroughly inspect your roof and meet with the insurance company for you to ensure you receive the coverage you deserve.

What is your service area for home roofing?

Our primary service area is the Chicago suburbs and Southern Wisconsin. This includes Illinois cities like Algonquin, Barrington, Crystal Lake, McHenry and Naperville and Wisconsin cities like Janesville, Milwaukee, New Berlin and Waukesha. We have also provided services in Indiana and North Carolina.

What sets your company apart from other residential roofing contractors?

The mission of our roofing company is to bring integrity back to the roofing industry. Unfortunately, some contractors have given our industry a bad name. They care more about getting paid and completing the roof as quickly as possible than the customers they’re serving.

We’re flipping that on its head by putting the customer’s needs first throughout the roofing project. We do this by staying in close communication with customers throughout the project and refusing to cut corners. As a result, you will always receive the highest quality craftsmanship and exceptional customer service from our team.

Do you offer financing for residential projects?

Yes! Please contact us to learn about the financing options we offer.

Do you have the necessary licenses and insurance for residential roofing?

Yes! Our company has all the necessary licenses in the regions we serve. We’re a licensed unlimited roofing contractor in Illinois and have a dwelling contractor’s license in Wisconsin. We also have licensed public adjusters on staff and are a preferred contractor of All Peril Public Adjusters.

All our work is completely insured. We have all necessary bonds, workman’s compensation, general liability insurance and umbrella insurance.

How long does a typical roofing project take?

Residential roofing projects typically take between 1-2 days from start to finish. However, this time can vary depending on the scope of the project.

What warranty coverage do you provide for residential projects?

Every project comes with a five-year labor warranty. With the weather we have in the Midwest, you should know if there are any issues with our work within the first five years. If anything comes up during that time, you can call us, and we’ll make it right free of charge.

How do you handle unexpected weather issues during the project?

Our policy is to expect the unexpected, especially when it comes to the weather. We watch the radar like a hawk and will never put your roof at risk if we know there’s a chance of storms in the area. Instead, when there is a chance of storms, we will only work on small portions of the roof rather than removing all the shingles at once and leaving the decking vulnerable.

This can cause delays and make the project move along more slowly than we anticipated. But we would rather have delays than have your roof incur avoidable damage during the project.

What steps do you take to protect my property?

One of the ways we put your needs first during a residential roofing project is by treating your property better than we’d treat our own. We are very careful to tarp over all plants and decorations that may be damaged by our work. We also move any deck or patio furniture out of the way to protect it.

How do you protect your residential roofers during projects?

We follow strict safety rules for every project. All workers are required to follow OSHA standards. We also have safety harnesses, hard hats and safety glasses available at every worksite.

How do you clean up after the work is done?

We take several steps to leave your property better looking and cleaner than it was when we came. These steps include:

  • Blowing all debris out of the gutters and off the roof
  • Sweeping debris off the deck and driveway
  • Picking up nails with a magnetic roller
  • Moving all decorations and furniture back to their original spots
  • Disposing of all garbage in a trailer and hauling it away

What happens if I’m not satisfied with the work?

We don’t consider the project complete until you’re completely satisfied. If you notice something that’s not as you’d like it to be, call us and we’ll return to fix it on our dime.

Do you offer emergency roofing services?

Yes! We provide emergency tarping and service if the repairs need to get done right away.
