After the recent hail storm we saw come through Denver, you might be wondering what your next step should be if you have roof damage from the storm.

The one thing you shouldn’t do is call your insurance company first. We’re not saying don’t call them at all, but you should have someone else come out and take a look before you file a claim. Even if an insurance agent comes out and decides that there isn’t enough damage for a claim, they will still count that claim against you and use it to raise your rates in the future.

We have some great roofers that we can refer you to. They will come out, take a look, and let you know if you have a good enough case for an insurance claim, free of charge.

“One of our roofers can come take a look free of charge.”

As you can see on the roof I’m on in the video above, the storm really decimated some properties. The top of the vent cover is dented in and there are shiny areas that signify hail damage throughout the roof. This is the kind of damage that is covered by your insurance.

If you have any questions for us or just need some help assessing the hail damage you took, give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
