We’re wrapping up hail season here in Colorado, but that doesn’t mean that it is smooth sailing from here on out. It’s important to make sure your roof is in the best shape possible as we head into the fall and winter seasons that bring cold and snow. As your resident Castle Rock roofers, we wanted to share some signs with you that might indicate you need to call professional roofers in to inspect your home.

The roof provides the first line of defense against a variety of natural threats. Water, inclement weather, and sunlight all pose a risk to your home and rental property. Over time, these threats can turn to be threats to the roof itself as well.

In the state of Colorado, hail damage is a very serious and very frequent threat. When cooler winds out of the north meet warm, humid weather from the south, central Colorado homeowners are at risk. Every year, we help hundreds of property owners repair damage to their homes. In some cases, the damage is inevitable, but in others, the severity could have been minimized or avoided altogether. Our roof repair experts have put together an all-inclusive hail damage prevention guide to help you navigate yet another summer in Hail Alley.

We talk to homeowners with hail damage about whether or not a general contractor can handle their repairs. Insurance policies can be complex documents, full of confusing jargon and clauses that the layman struggles to decipher. So, it’s no surprise that many homeowners aren’t sure if their claims can be handled by roofing general contractors. To help clear the air, let’s discuss insurance claims and how general contractors fit into the equation when your home is damaged.
