HAIL DAMAGE REPAIR
Living in Denver, we’re no strangers to the occasional hailstorm. With hail ranging in size from BBs to softballs, and sometimes even bigger, these spring and summertime storms can wreak havoc on your landscape, car, and roof. Just like you wouldn’t ignore hail damage to your car, you shouldn’t let your roof go ignored either. After a hailstorm, you should take a quick look at your roof for any obvious signs of damage like cracked or displaced shingles or exposed wood and insulation.
I’VE INSPECTED MY ROOF, NOW WHAT?
If you saw any damage to your roof, give us a call immediately. When there’s clearly visible damage to your roof, you can be sure that there’s more damage that you can’t see and it needs to be repaired quickly. Not all hail damage is visible from the ground. If you didn’t see anything wrong, it’s still a good idea to give us a call for an inspection. Damage to your roof won’t always be easy to see so you should have a professional come take a look for any hidden problems. Even a small problem can compound quickly and lead to larger repairs in the future. The earlier we catch roof damage, the less headache you’ll have to endure.
If you notice any of these, check your roof for damage:
Worn down or cracked shingles
Exposed wood framing or insulation
Cracked or pierced undercoating
Damage to your car or landscape
WHY DO I NEED TO REPLACE MY ENTIRE ROOF IF ONLY A FEW SHINGLES ARE DAMAGED?
You may not need to, but only a professional can determine that with a proper inspection. Hail damage isn’t typically isolated to one area of your roof. Unrepaired damage can allow for leaks and lead to wider spread damage and what looks like a minor issue can become increasingly dangerous the longer you wait. There’s no reason to not file a claim for damage to your home, so stay on the safe side and give us a call for even the most minor damage. We’ll make sure to get you the repairs your home needs.
HOW DO I PAY FOR ALL OF THIS? WILL INSURANCE COVER IT?
Each homeowner insurance provider will handle it differently, but generally speaking, they’d rather pay for a roof repair or replacement than risk having larger damages down the line. An insurance provider will typically cover the cost of an entire replacement minus your deductible and we’ll make sure that your out-of-pocket is as low as possible, so leave the claims process to us! You’ll be much happier letting us deal with the hassle of repairing or replacing your roof now rather than risking a bigger headache later.
