Roofers who offer to pay your deductible are not professional roofers. They use this tactic to make it seem like you’re getting a free roof and entice you to choose them. It’s illegal in most states so don’t fall for their tricks! Please be aware it is a felony offense for insurance in Florida should you not pay a deductible, your contractor not collect the full deductible, or you keep any of the insurance money not spent on the repairs.
If you are concerned that you may have storm damage, make sure you request a roofing estimate to check and contact your insurance company to file a claim. We will help coordinate with your insurance adjuster and meet them at your home to make sure no damage is missed.

The 3-tabs have tabs that flip and flop in heavy winds leading to a higher likelihood of damage during harsh Florida storms.
