When Making A Claim With Your Insurance Company:

 If you have damage to your home you may be covered by your homeowner s insurance.  The process can be painless and Colonial Roofing is here to help!

- Contact Colonial Roofing to schedule a free inspection.

- If we find your home has been damaged, we recommend that you contact your insurance agent and request an inspection.

- If needed, your insurance agent can allow us to make temporary repairs to protect your home.  We will provide receipts to you which will need to be    provided to the agent for proper reimbursement.

- We encourage you to take pictures of the damage before repairs are made (we can help with this).

- Do not make any permanent repairs until the insurance company's adjuster has had the opportunity to inspect the damaged area.

- After the insurance adjuster inspects the damage, a claim sheet will be provided to you explaining the damages and what your insurance will cover, minus your deductible.

- Most homeowner s insurance policies will cover full costs for replacement (less your deductible) as long as the repairs are completed.  Then the depreciation value is recoverable.  Receipts from us need to be submitted to the insurance company and processed, at which time the final payment is made.

- Colonial Roofing offers free insurance claims assistance.

Asphalt Shingles

Asphalt ShinglesAsphalt shingles are the most commonly used type of shingle. They're reinforced with fiber glass or paper and range in durability; typically 20 to 30 years.

Asphalt shingles usually have three sections or "tabs" per shingle and an overall length of 3'. Most have dabs of tar or roofing cement on front to hold down the shingle that will lay on top of it.

Laminated Shingles

Laminated ShinglesFeatures:
Laminated shingles have gained a lot of popularity recently. Designed to add character, color and depth to the roof, laminated shingles are made of multiple, staggered layers of material (usually asphalt).

From afar, some types of laminated shingles give the look of an expensive slate or shake roof by incorporating angled or rounded tabs and shadow lines.


Slate (stone) shingles are highly durable (100+ years); but about 3 times heavier per square foot than asphalt. Slate is a bit more difficult to work with and less forgiving than asphalt shingles because they break easily. However, a slate roof can create a colorful, hand-crafted look that adds to the overall appearance of a house.

Concrete Tile RoofingCutting slate to size requires using a special pressure cutter or a pick-like hammer that splits the slate. Slate is easily damaged by walking on it, so you may want to contact a pro for repairs.

Concrete roofing is similar to slate in that it is extremely durable to the elements, but easy to damage during installation or repairs.

Wood Shakes & Shingles

Shakes are typically made of cedar, spruce or treated pine. Hand-split shakes have a rough, textured look on the front and often smooth on the back. Wood shingles are machine sawn smooth on both sides.

Wood shakes and shinglesGenerally, cedar is the highest performing wood for making shakes. But, treated pine shakes also perform well. Shakes are brown or reddish in color when new, but usually fade in the first year to a gray color.

To allow for expansion, shakes should be spaced up to 1/4" from their neighbors.

Shakes normally last about 30 years before needing to be replaced and throughout that time individual shakes/shingles may shrink, warp, or splinter.


Features: metal roof

You can expect a metal roof to last at least 2 to 3 times longer than a regular roof. In general terms, count on a metal roof lasting 40 to 60 years and beyond.   Plus, your new metal roof will add to the resale value of your home, save you money on your energy bills, and give you piece of mind that you'll likely never have to re-roof again.



Tile roofing is an affordable way to beautify the exterior of your home while simultaneously installing a roof that will keep your home weatherproofed in all sorts of weather.  Roof tiles are made of clay or concrete.  Clay tiles are quite durable and can last through rough weather; clay tile keeps home protected from wind, hail, and are fire resistant as well.  Concrete tile offers similar benefits when compared to clay roof tile. Extremely weather resistant, attractive, affordable, and durable, concrete roof tiles are an ideal finish for any roof and home style.
