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.

As a Colorado resident, you know better than most that after a storm hits roofing companies descend on the area faster than you can get to the front door. They’ll offer to waive your deductible, give you a free upgrade to new materials, and get you so stressed about the state of potential damage to your property that you feel compelled to make a decision right then and there. The problem with the common sales approach is that it doesn’t give home owners the chance to research the experience of the roof expert standing at their door. Whether you’re in a position that you need to make a decision on the spot or you have time to research companies before hand, we want to offer some advice that will help you glean information about the experience of the roof expert you’re considering.
