Atlas Chalet Recall Shingle Replacement Atlanta
Atlas Chalet Inspections – Discontinued Defective Shingles
The Atlas Roofing Company discontinued the Chalet line of shingles in 2010. It just so happens that there are more Atlas Chalet shingles installed on more homes in Georgia than any other State in the USA. The majority of those being in the Metro Atlanta area.
If you have this defective roofing product, it is important you have an experienced roofing contractor like ResCom Roofing conduct a thorough inspection of your roof. Even if your looks fine from the ground, these shingles typically begin cracking and blistering within just a few years after being installed.
Your Insurance Company May Pay for a New Roof Replacement
Upon inspection of your roof, if any storm damage is found, we recommend filing an insurance claim. Now, there are certain insurance companies that will work with you as the insured to get you a new roof. However, there are a few that absolutely will not pay for a new roof. Not to name names… but All State is one that will not help you.
However, many others will replace the roof if there is only one damaged shingle. This is the way it should be handled. Because if there is any damage to these shingles, there is no way to repair them properly due to the fact that we cannot buy this product anymore, and there are no replacement shingles on the market that are similar to the Atlas Chalet.
