Check the free app for ios or android called "low clearance locator" works well and is priced right.

I would see what insurance would pay and if they wouldn't replace correctly. I would try to pay the difference to get a new one.

Nothing worse than being somewhere and the roof leaks. Hope it works out good for u.

I would replace all of it, I believe you will have less problems in the long run.

Not to be Pollyanna, but no structural damage is really fortunate!

May as well do the whole thing, even if insurance only pays part. It will retain resale a bit longer and probably be less likely to have other issues later on.

Very true, but if this ever happened to me, I would find out how much extra it would cost to do the entire roof. 80 percent of the labor is already in the repair, and the extra labor and materials may not be as expensive as you think.

That seam will be a constant headache to keep from leaking.

Ditto.

OUCH ! I would do the WHOLE roof. Was that low clearance marked? I am super aware of low structures after a low bridge encounter near a campground at Mill Run PA. I was a foot to tall and smoked the front brakes on the truck getting it stopped a couple of years ago. Some states have the overpasses marked. Last year I noticed one overpass marked that I was an inch taller. I went up the exit ramp and down the entrance ramp on the other side. If in doubt just get behind a Semi.
