Default JA Edwards Roofing....any experience

My wife was met at the driveway by a rep from this company when she arrived home today. He was cordial and offered a free roof inspection. Upon finishing the inspection he said the backside of our 9 year old roof shows heavy damage from a hail storm we experienced in July. He had plenty of pictures and recommended opening a claim with our insurance company.


Skeptical of door to door salesmen, I checked the company out on BBB and the Florida Dept of Business sites as well as google reviews.
A+ BBB rating with some recent complaints that were resolved. No bad google reviews that I could find. Lic in good standing with FL.

Has anybody had any experience with this company?


Thanks in advance.

Why think that a salesman will try to BS his way through an insurance company, when you have absolutely zero damage on the inside? Not that interior damage is required, but come on, doesn't this fail the smell test to you?

My roof was just replaced as a result of the same hail storm. So have several others on my street and neighborhood. I'll PM you who I I used.

I've run a couple of thousand hail claims. Very seldom is there damage on the inside unless hail busts a window or skylight.

Has this company been established in your area for some time? If not, I would recommend considering a local company not a storm chaser (if that is what this company is). If a local guy messes up, he has to worry about meeting you in Home Depot. If a storm chaser messes up, he won't care because he'll be in the next state. If you have a leak in 3 years, the local guy will probably warranty his roof when the storm chaser will have changed their phone numbers.
