Storms introduce an array of hazards, each posing distinct challenges. The safeguarding of your home relies heavily on your roof’s integrity, which can be compromised by various forms of storm damage. Denver residents often encounter these types of roof storm damage:
Hail Damage: Although infrequent, hailstorms wield considerable destructive power. The varying sizes of hailstones contribute to differing levels of damage. Different roofing materials can be affected, possibly leading to cracks or splits that weaken the protective layer. This vulnerability may result in water infiltration and exacerbate the harm. Additionally, prolonged exposure to UV rays may reduce the lifespan of roofing materials.
Wind Damage: Storm-driven winds can be as forceful as those in hurricanes, potentially lifting, damaging, or dislodging shingles. Homeowners frequently overlook subtle surface damage during initial inspections. Opting for a thorough assessment by local roofing professionals is a prudent choice.
Understanding the insurance claims process enhances the likelihood of a successful resolution. If your roof sustains storm damage requiring an insurance claim, the typical progression involves the following steps:
Step 1: Damage Assessment: While initiating a self-inspection is a starting point, involving a local roofing contractor is essential. Professionals can identify damages that homeowners might miss.
Step 2: Contacting Your Insurance Provider: Swiftly notifying your insurance company of the roof damage is crucial. Prompt action expedites the claims process.
Step 3: Insurance Evaluation: An assigned assessor evaluates the damage and assesses coverage eligibility. Seeking a second opinion from a roofing repair company can resolve uncertainties.
Step 4: Document Submission: When selecting roof repairs, provide comprehensive documentation outlining the necessary fixes. Specify the repairer and associated costs.
Step 5: Awaiting Decision: After submitting documentation, anticipate the insurer’s response. In case of delays, seek clarification from the insurance company.
Understanding the insurance claims process enhances the chances of a successful outcome. If your roof sustains storm damage requiring an insurance claim, follow these steps:
Thorough Documentation: Meticulously document all relevant aspects, including damage and repairs. Photographic evidence expedites the claims process.
Timely Action: Swiftly notify your insurance provider after damage occurs. Quick response aids accurate record-keeping and efficient claims handling.
Prepared Repair Team: Having professional roofing repair assistance ready serves multiple purposes, preventing further damage and streamlining interactions with insurers.

"I had previously called other roofing companies in the area, when I saw an ad for American Roofing & Construction. I decided to give them a call, and am so happy that I did. They offered great prices for good quality shingles, and when I scheduled an appointment they respected my schedule and preferences which was a nice change to the last company I wished to hire. Overall, they did a magnificent job and I'm satisfied in knowing that I can call a trusted company should there be a need to."
"We needed to decide fast wether if we wanted a shingled or a tile roof. Our contractor provided us with cost-effective estimates and suggestions of what material (shingle or tile) was best suitable. We were very pleased with their reliable customer service and how everything was done in a jiffy! We are so happy with our new shingled roof! If we ever come across with a new incoming roof conflict, American Roofing & Construction is the 1st LLC company to be contacted. Thank you Raul and your team for a great job!"
"My experience with American Roofing was very positive through all phases. Their guidance in submitting an insurance claim for wind and hail damage was seamless, and subsequent shingle removal and replacement was done in a timely and professional manner. Oscar and his crew did an incredible job through to cleaning up. And now I have a new roof complete with the GAF integrated system that should last another 30 years, likely after I go through the Pearly Gates! Thanks American Roofing- I would recommend them to anyone who may need roof repairs or replacement."
