My roof was recently damaged by hail, and the insurance company has agreed to have the roof replaced.
The contractor I am working with (Patriot Service Network) is recommending the IKO Cambridge 30 AR. An alternative is the GAF Timberline Prestique 30 High Def. The contractor is pushing IKO, saying that the weight is 2.1 lbs/shingle for the IKO vs 1.6 lbs/shingle for the Timberline. Also, that IKO is vertically integrated and makes all its own granules, while GAF gets their supplies from sub-contractors.
My question is -
- Any opinion on the Patriot Service Network? I checked BBB and couldn’t find complaints (only 1 complaint, resolved).
- Opinion on the shingles and what I am being told about the companies?
Also, is there anything I should be asking for, in addition to showing the contractor the insurance estimate and worksheet, and saying ‘replace my roof’? I am uneasy that there may be certain things you only get unless you ask for it.
Any info would be much appreciated - many thanks!
