Free Roof Insurance Claim Assistance

If you are concerned about roof damage to your home because of hail or high winds, please feel free to call our Pueblo or Colorado Springs roof repair office and we will come evaluate any possible damage.

  • We will let you know at that time if, in our opinion, you need to file a claim with your insurance company for repairs or replacement in Pueblo, Colorado Springs, or anywhere else in Southern Colorado because of roof hail damage or other issues. To file a claim just call your insurance agent or provider and they will have an adjuster contact you.
  • If you are filing a claim on your roof for hail damage or something else you do not need to get bids before your adjuster comes to evaluate it, as they have specific criteria they use to complete your claim.
  • If our opinion is that you have uninsurable damage or minimal damage (less than the normal deductible) we will let you know how much it will cost for our roof repair service in Pueblo, Colorado Springs, or elsewhere in Southern Colorado.
  • Please remember we are only giving you our opinion. We cannot guarantee that the insurance adjuster will see exactly what we do for roof hail damage. However, if we have looked at your roof and advised you to file a claim and the claim is denied we will be willing to meet with your insurance company for a re-inspect to show them why we gave you that advice.

 

TIPS:

  • The roof damage evaluation process for your Pueblo, or Colorado Springs home is very important. You do not want to file a claim unless it is necessary. Insurance companies look at how many claims you have filed and they include claims filed that you do not get paid on. Be sure to talk with your agent if you have questions.
  • If you file a claim for Pueblo or Colorado Springs roof damage with your insurance company, it is best to get an estimate from us after your adjuster has been out to inspect your roof.
  • It’s important to use a reputable, local roofing company in Pueblo and Colorado Springs. Never hire a company that knocks on your door. Check references, get referrals from your neighbors and friends, and especially check with the BBB. Don’t use an out-of-state company that won’t be around if you may need them down the road. A 5-year workmanship warranty means nothing if they aren’t around to service you.
  • Your insurance company will give you paperwork and pay you directly for your Pueblo or Colorado Springs roof damage claim. The process can be confusing but we are more than happy to help you with any questions you have.

 

Roof Hail Damage? How to determine if you have damage.

Hail damage accounts for a lot of the damage to roofs in Colorado Springs and Pueblo. Nationwide, hail storms cause more than $1.6 billion in damage per year – just in roof damage – according to the Federal Alliance of Safe Homes. The following points will help you in the process of determining whether you should seek outside help.

  • Roofing systems must be physically inspected by someone who has training and experience to determine if there is actual roof hail damage to your home.
  • Missing shingles are related to wind damage claims and can happen during a hail storm if the winds are high enough. However, roof hail damage to shingles or tiles is insidious in nature and may not physically cause leakage until years after a hail storm.
  • Although each roof must be evaluated individually, the number, size, and hardness of the hailstones can vary tremendously within a small locality. Velocity and direction of the wind are also factors. Other factors include roof pitch, age, and condition.
  • Many insurance companies do have a one year time limit and some even less, however due to the nature of hail damage they may pay claims past the deadline. This usually happens if a hail storm is widespread geographically.
  • Manufacturer’s specifically name hail as an exclusion to their product warranty, so do home builders and roofing contractors. Newer roofs can actually be more susceptible to hail damage versus older roofs due to the time it takes a new roof to cure from exposure to the elements.
  • Most states prohibit insurance companies from cancelling policies for filing claims arising from severe weather related events.
  • After a disaster, insurance companies may raise every one’s rates. By not filing your roof hail damage claim in Pueblo or Colorado Springs, your personal rate increase is paying for everyone else’s damage except yours.

 

Here at Cornerstone Roofing we want to ensure that you ONLY get roof hail damage repair for your home if you need it. Integrity is important to us and we do our absolute best to provide you with all of the information (even if we do not reroof your home) so you can make a wise decision going forward.

Identifying ‘functional’ roof hail damage to shingles or tiles (what an insurance company will cover) is problematic. Insurance companies will first determine if damage is recent, in the past, or a combination of multiple incidents over the life of the current roof.

  • Roof hail damage will typically dent the soft metals on your roof (i.e. vents, exhaust caps) before it damages your shingles.  So check the vinyl trim around your windows and the flashing on the roof.  Also, check the cooling fins of the exterior A/C condensing unit.
  • Roof Hail damage to your home is rated in terms of degrees of damage: bruising, granule loss, edge removal, wood splitting, and fracturing of the asphalt underlayment. Granular loss alone usually does not qualify for replacement of the roof.
  • Roof Hail Damage to shingles is partially determined by the strength of the substrate below the shingle. A more structurally sound decking will not flex as much during impact, thus lessening the damage to the shingle.
  • The slope or pitch of your roof and the direction of the storm may result in hail damage to one side of your roof and not the other. Perpendicular impacts will cause the most damage.

 

Before you begin your process with the insurance company, please contact us first to determine the extent of your hail damage. We have navigated these waters many times and have the expertise you need. Cornerstone Roofing is also a local company which means we are deeply invested in the community you live in.
