No. It is your right to select a contractor, not the cheapest priced contractor. S. Robideau utilizes industry specific Xactimate software and quarterly updated price lists. Most insurance companies and adjusters write estimates from this software or something very close to it. Your representative from S. Robideau will work with your adjuster to agree upon the scope of damage and the course of action to be taken. Before any repairs are made we will have an agreed estimate with your insurance company or at a minimum an authorization to begin repairs.
Can I change my single and siding colors?
Yes. Your insurance provider will pay for equal or like kind and quality material on your home. A representative from S. Robideau will provide you with colors and samples of products needed to restore your home.
How long will the roof take to replace?
Most roofing projects will be completed in one day. Materials, dumpster and permit will be dropped off the day before the scheduled start date. On the scheduled date of work the roof will be compete, your S. Robideau production coordinator will complete a 10 point inspection, the dumpster company will be called for a removal, and a final inspection will be scheduled. If your roof is extremely large or difficult due to pitch or design your S. Robideau representative will discuss with you the completion time line.

Depreciation is the reduction in the value of an asset due to usage, passage of time, wear and tear, outdating or obsolescence, and other similar factors. Most insurance policies include depreciation on selected items in their estimate. Recoverable depreciation is refunded to the homeowner when the repairs are completed.
