A roofing company came to my house and began to remove shingles for a roof replacement but they were at the wrong house! Neither I nor my wife were home at the time but the neighbor a couple doors down, whose house they were supposed to go to, saw what has happening and stopped them before too much damage was done. No more than 20% of the shingles were removed. (In retrospect, I wish they would have removed all the shingles…)
After inspection, the roofing company stated the majority of the roof has hail damage and should be replaced. They convinced me to file a claim with my insurance company for an entire roof replacement due to hail. The company sent out an adjuster who basically denied the claim except for a few hundred dollars to replace a slightly dented vent. Now the roofing company wants me to go the appraisal route with insurance, which they feel very strongly will go in our favor. However they have also offered to replace just the front slopes where the shingles were removed.
Our roof is about 11-12 years old with 20 year grade, asphalt shingles. If we replace only a portion of the roof, aside from a hopefully slight cosmetic difference, are there any issues relating to resale or value? We live in Texas, if that matters. And with the spring storm season just about upon us, the sooner this gets resolved the better.
I’m open to any and all advice. Thanks in advance.
