We recently had a pretty good wind storm (100mph+) and it took care of a lot of my shingles.
Unfortunately they cut me a check for $2800 (that includes a window and bar-b-q that were damaged) and that's about $3K less than the lowest roofer bid to repair what he could, and around $8K less than all of the roofers "suggested I get done".
