Roof ridge blew off my house and we have been unable to get a response from any local roofers for repair.  There is open whole in my roof. It is on a peak that I am unable to reach because the roof pitch is too steep.  

Anyone in northern CT who can help out with equipment to get up a roof? I have the ridge shingles and nails ready to go.

Couldn't hurt (if you haven't done so already) to put out a bat signal over on CTGT (http://www.guntalk.club/smf/index.php?action=forum) or maybe even NorthEastShooters (https://www.northeastshooters.com/) to cast a wider net for possible responses.

With the prediction of a possible low grade cat 1 hurricane or tropical storm coming for Sunday hopefully you can find someone who can help out it in the next day or two. NHC keeps inching the track further and further into CT. Current 11am prediction has the center of the track right over the CT/RI border area.

I made a $25k claim last year after the August tropical storm. Roof, siding, pool liner, etc. (That doesnt include a car getting crushed). Insurance wanted to raise my rate $500 per year. Dropped them like a rock for a lesser rate than before the claim.

ETA: insurances original buyout offsr was $3k

I can't say what his insurance will do, but this is not my experience.
10 months after purchasing and remodeling my first home, I had a +$100k claim, due to that ice storm on Oct 29, 2011.
I don't believe I'm paying any more now than I was then.
