Don't worry: the process isn't overly complicated. Today we'll outline all the things that are included in our roof repair services.
Is It Time to Repair Your Roof?
As a homeowner, you'll want to keep a watchful eye on the condition of your property. Over time, your home will endure all kinds of weather and incur all kinds of storm damage.
Your roof is likely in dire need of repairs if you notice signs of damage, like:
- Dented, chipped, or broken shingles
- Missing or loose shingles
- Accumulations of shingle granules in your gutters
- Blistering or peeling exterior paint
- Wear and tear around roof objects and openings (e.g., chimneys, vents, pipes, etc.)
- Roof leaks, and stains on walls and ceilings
- Structural concerns (e.g., sagging roof deck, presence of daylight in your attic, etc.)
Your roofing system can also fall into a state of disrepair over time if you don't keep up with your home maintenance.
In general, it's a good idea to book a professional roof inspection each year. This will help ensure your roof is functioning properly and that you don't need extensive residential roofing services.
A Breakdown of Our Castle Rock Roof Repair Services
Each roofing company has its own process for roofing repair services. At Ethos, we train our skilled roofing professionals to follow these essential steps.
Comprehensive Home Inspection
We always kick off any roof repair project with a comprehensive inspection of your property. That means our roofers will closely inspect your roof and the rest of your property for damage. This way, you'll have peace of mind knowing you have a clear understanding of your home's current condition.
Our roofing contractors will methodically progress through 3 different roof inspections:
- A ground-level inspection
- An exterior roof inspection
- And an interior inspection
Throughout the process, our contractors are looking for signs of property damage like mold, dents, penetrations, and more. We'll document every instance of damage that is found.
Walk Through Your Roof Estimate
Next, your roofing professional will sit down and run through the details of their inspection with you. They'll outline all of their findings, clearly explain the severity of the damage, and provide recommendations on how to best fix the damage.
They'll then input those findings into an estimate calculator tool to generate your roof repair estimate. You'll receive a copy of this estimate and it will include a lot of valuable information (Angi). Those details will include:
- Project timeline/start and end dates
- Proof of company licenses and insurance policies
- Itemized costs (e.g., labor, materials, permits, etc.)
- Basic company information (e.g., payment terms, contact information, etc.)
- Work guarantees and warranties
- Information on your roofing system
- A detailed plan of the repairs
Your roofing contractor will walk through all the details of the estimate in-depth with you.
Submit Your Insurance Claim
You won't be able to file an insurance claim on every roofing project. This is because standard homeowner's insurance policies will only cover storm-related damage (The Balance).
So, if your roof has suffered hail damage from a recent storm this year, your insurance might cover the repair costs. However, if your roof damage can be attributed to a lack of maintenance, then your claim will likely be rejected.
If you can file a claim, our roofer will provide educational insights to aid your claim. We're very familiar with the roof insurance claims process. So, we can help expand your knowledge of the process to increase your likelihood of an approved claim.
Repair The Roof
Every roofing repair project is different from the last. Some roofs may require a handful of new shingles. Others might need more labor-intensive repairs.
It's safe to say your roof repairs will be unique to your property. Depending on the scope of work, your repairs may include additional repair services like:
- Gutter repairs
- Siding repairs
- Window repairs
- Exterior paint touch-ups
- And more
Once the contract is signed, your roofers will first set up protective measures around your property. These may simply be tarps or other materials that will help minimize incidental damage.
Next, the old roofing materials will be removed. Old shingles, underlayment, and other roof products will be removed.
From there, your roofing contractors will perform another inspection for any underlying problems (e.g., rotted wood, missing nails, etc.). If the roof is good to go, the new roof materials will be installed.
The total project timeline will vary from one roof to the next. However, most roof repair installation projects can be completed in a single day.
Once the repairs are complete, our roofers will diligently clean up your property. We'll place all used materials in the trash, remove our safety precautions, and survey your property with magnets to pick up fallen debris and nails.
To round out our Castle Rock roof repair services, we'll perform one final post-project inspection. This final property review helps ensure everything has been properly installed properly and cleaned up.
