Andes Contracting & Roofing

If the thought of replacing your roof, whether for insurance or not, seems like it is just too much – you’re not alone.  Often customers call us because they aren’t sure what to do; this is part of the service we offer.   Regardless of the status of your insurance claim, we are here to help. (Before contacting the insurance, before meeting the adjuster, after they have been denied a claim, or after they have received their paperwork.)  No matter where you find yourself today, we will answer all your questions and help you with whatever needs to happen next.  Because of our experience, things go smoothly and the replacement of the roof is painless and over before you know it.


How the process will go when working with Andes Contracting

For more information see steps 3 – 6 under Claims Assistance on this website.

See How is a Roof Built on this website for more information on the construction of your roof.


Be prepared for the work to begin

  1. It is best to make arrangements so small children and pets are not around the construction site.
  2. The work to start early and likely finish late in the day – this way we can get most projects done in one day. (Start time will vary depending on the time of the year and when the sun comes up.)
  3. Your home will be a construction site for the day, expect there to be noise inside and outside your home.
  4. Your driveway will likely be blocked with equipment and/or materials.  For this reason and to prevent flat tires from nails, we recommend parking your car(s) on the street during the day(s) of work.
  5. We recommend removing all loose items from wall shelves and walls; pictures, plates, and figurines.  Hammering may create vibrations and will shake these items off the shelves and/or walls.
  6. As part of set-up in the morning we will move any items that can be moved away from the house and cover anything that cannot be moved, but if there are things you want to have moved/protected yourself we recommend doing so the day before.
  7. During the roofing project, dust may fall from rafters and undersides of decking.   For this reason, we recommend any clothing or items this could damage should be covered or protected; especially in attic spaces used as storage.
