I am pretty confident that the roof is just toast but I want opinions. I don't normally 2nd guess myself and don't see me changing my thoughts but I'm just curious what others would think.

(Topic has multiple pages1 2 )
If a carrier requires 10 hits per square and you can only find 7-8 hits per square, how do you explain to the insd that their insurance company does not owe to replace their roof  How do you tell them that there are approx 400 damaging hail hits to their roof BUT it is not really damaged so they are not getting a new roof.  Then how do you explain to them that they will be getting an estimate for a minimum roof repair of $200 bucks to "repair" 400 damaged shingles   ...
