Roofing & Siding Contractor in Waterbury CT
Whenever we are roofing or siding a home in Waterbury, we’re always amazed at the diverse entertainment the city has to offer. Our family loves to take in a Broadway musical, concert, standup comedy night, and even a children’s play at the Palace Theater. The acoustics are amazing and there’s not a bad seat in the house. The theater was recently fully restored to its original WW1-era architecture but with modern conveniences.
When we’re feeling a bit nostalgic, there’s nothing like a fun night of roller skating and arcade games to celebrate the 70s and 80s, and Roller Magic is just the place to relive our youth. This place has a seriously cool vibe!

Will my Homeowners insurance cover the cost of a new roof?
Sometimes! It depends on whether or not there was a coverfed cause of loss. If your roof was damaged by wind, the weight of ice or snow, ice dams, fire, lightning, or a falling object, your homeowners insurance will most likely cover the cost of a new roof. If your shingles have merely exceeded their useful lifespan, that is considered wear and tear and is not covered by Homeowners insurance.
