Q: What about roofers who say they can waive the deductible?
A: Waiving the deductible is insurance fraud and a felony, the insurance doesn’t overpay you for the roof, and the insurance will discount and deprecate the roof because of its age. The day you do the roof you have to invoice the insurance for the depreciation and tell the truth on what you charge, if you lie to the insurance company, that’s where fraud kicks in and you don’t want to deal with that roofer, since it’s the most important thing you do to your house.
