What is best for one customer may differ from what is best for you. Our team of experts is here to guide you through the decision-making process. We use only the highest quality materials in the business and have various cost options to fit any budget.

5. How much does a new roof cost, and what affects the price? The cost of a new roof varies greatly depending on the size and materials used. Chimneys, skylights, old roof removal, and other considerations all factor into the cost of a new roof. Here at Sorenson Roofing & Restoration, we have extensive experience working with our customers who are working out insurance claims and offer payment options to those who qualify.

8. How can I maintain my roof to prevent wear and damage? It’s important that you keep your gutters clean and free of debris, as well as trim back any trees or branches that may be touching your roof. In addition, remove any snow to prevent leaks (and keep ice dams from forming) and call us for an inspection at least every two years or after any major storms!

9. Can a leaky roof be repaired, or do I need a complete replacement? Repairs are possible in some circumstances, but every situation differs, and it’s important to get a professional inspection done to mitigate any future problems.

We also understand that cost plays a huge factor in your decision-making process and we’re here to guide you through making the best decisions to ensure the safety of your family and the integrity of your structure.

10. What is the process for filing an insurance claim for roof damage? Every insurance company is different and what is covered under your plan also differs. We would love to chat with you about filing an insurance claim for your roofing needs and have knowledge and experience working with most insurance companies.
