Insurance Claim, Chimney blown off house Cosby, Tn.

The customer experienced damages to the roof after a chimney is blown off the house.  The Insurance company paid for the chimney damages and the chimney was in the process of being rebuilt when we met this home owner.

Shingles were not matching at the chimney where we are replacing the old shingles. The home owner had decided to see if the insurance company would pay for the roof to be replaced.  That is where Litespeed Construction came in.  Litespeed built an insurance ready scope, which the owner turned into the claim handler, and State Farm decided to pay for the entire roof.

We added back some new siding, used ice and water of the entire roof because most of the roof was 3:12 which is marginal for felt.  Litespeed Construction also used membrane roofing to cover a lower slope section of this home that was around a 1:12 roof slope.

    This is the Flat Roof Portion where we Added the White TPO Membrane Roof

    This roof has a lot of low slope sections.  The low slope or flat roofing sections need membrane roofs, not shingles.  Shingles will leak here.

      Proper single stagger is extremely important for a roof to be installed correctly. Shingles always get staggered at this 45° or 6 inch spaced pattern.

              Ice and water throughout

              Due to random leaking throughout the roof we decided to add ice and water shield to the entire roof as a secondary layer of protection. This put our customers mind at ease!
