Whether or not a roof replacement or repair is covered by insurance should be between you and the insurance company. But, some contractors will want to "represent" you and ask you to sign a document authorizing them to be paid directly by the insurance company. In my opinion, this is a very bad idea.

Never, NEVER sign an "assignment of Benefits" agreement, as stated above, you lose ALL control of the project. If you do not believe me call Seniors against crime.

Solicitation is a no no for me. Call the insurance company.

This is a common practice. As a landlord of commercial and industrial space, we often see this happen. A contractor will come into the area to lease space, when severe storms are scheduled to hit or after storms have hit. They lease the space and then saturate the local area with their representative knocking on doors to get work. Their pitch is you can get a new roof or new siding, etc. and your insurance company will pay for it, due to "storm damage".

I have a personal rule that if a company comes to my door, when they know (or should know) full well that solicitation in TV is not allowed...they politely get the door shut in their faces.
From what I have heard, the no solicitation rule is not enforced probably because it is not a valid requirement. How can The Villages control what is done on a public road and a private property ?

Does anyone feel a scam is on the way.
I would let the villages know what is going on and the police.

We are in an area where the homes are approaching 20 years old. You hear the sounds of roofers daily. We live on a small court with only 14 houses. Only one has “bitten the bullet” and had the roof replaced. I keep hearing insurance companies are requiring new roofs before renewal. Anyone experienced this?
