Storm Damage in Denver
The Denver area including Colorado Springs and the Colorado Front Range areas are not lacking in roofing contractors, but this doesn’t mean you should just go with the first one you come across. Especially when your roof has been damaged by hail or other storm elements, it’s important to go with a roofing contractor who actually specializes in this area. That’s where Integrity Xteriors comes in. Unlike many Denver roofing contractors, we also serve as complete roofhail damage and storm damage experts. Basically, what this means is that we not only specialize in assessing and repairing storm damage to your roof, but we do the same for other storm damage to your home— regardless of whether it's your siding, eavestroughs, windows, decks, etc.
Is it Hail Damage?
Roof Hail Damage in Denver
Homes in Denver are damaged all the time by various kinds of weather, but believe it or not, it’s not always easy to determine hail damage or other kinds of storm damage (though any kind of damage to your home should be repaired as soon as possible), particularly if it’s minor. Sometimes a year can pass before the damage from a storm becomes really apparent, and by then the repairs could be a lot more extensive. So, it’s always a good idea to inspect your home for signs of damage after a big storm. Here are signs you should look for:
Circular dents anywhere on your home’s roof, siding, deck or windows. (Typical of hail damage)
Cracks holes in the siding, roof or windows (Also especially common in hail storms)
Missing roof shingles (may have blown off during a storm)
Loose or slipping roof shingles (may have been loosened or weakened by a storm)
Scuffed or cracked paint that wasn’t there before
Loose, slipped or missing siding (As fixed as siding appears on your house, heavy winds or strong pelting with hail can knock it loose and sometimes even blow it right off)
Obviously, major damage after a storm will be apparent, and you shouldn’t be afraid to call for an assessment and repairs as soon as possible. Remember, if you’re unsure of whether or not you are in need of repairs, be sure to call and ask for free roof inspection.
We are a complete hail damage and storm damage contractorbased in Denver. As mentioned, this means that we are not only qualified to repair storm damage to your home’s roof, but we also specialize in working on and fixing any other part of your home’s exterior. You should also know that no additional contractors will ever have to be brought in to work on the job. Hiring subcontractors is a practice that is unfortunately very common with many of those in our industry, and while this may not seem to be an issue on the surface, the truth is that this can cause the homeowner to spend more money (more people working on your home = more people who need to be paid), and it can create more room for miscommunication. It can also result in the project taking longer to complete. So if you want the convenience of hiring only one contractor and knowing exactly who is working on your home, that’s what we’re here for — we do it all and see the project through to completion. You should also know that Integrity Xteriors can offer an upgraded warranty for the roofing work we do. Typically, regular roofing supplies already come with a lifetime warranty, but if you read the fine print you can see that this warranty only covers things like defective shingles, and it does not include labor costs. An upgraded warranty, on the other hand, covers the full roofing system, including underlayment and labor costs. Only 10 percent of roofing contractors in Denver actually have the certification to offer this warranty.
Recovering from the Storm
Severe Storm Damage
Storm damage in Denver, Colorado occurs in varying degrees, and when your home undergoes severe damage as a result, it can turn your life upside down. Sometimes your home actually sustained damage in a previous storm, only to become noticeable after another storm. And by then, the damage could be a lot worse. Fortunately, the faster you contact a professional roofing contractor to examine the damage to your home and get a hail damage estimate, the better. Even if you have already spotted plenty of problem areas yourself (a big hole in your roof or ripped-off siding will be obvious, for example), full hail damage and storm damage contractors like Integrity Xteriors will be able to take a look and tell you if there are other issues that may not be obvious from a first glance. It’s also important to start getting repairs done right after they happen because, in addition to not wanting the problem to get even worse, there could be underlying structural problems that could actually make living in the home dangerous. For instance, roofs have sometimes been known to collapse days (if not longer) after the storm has passed. For your own safety, it’s important to call in the experts for a free safety inspection as soon as possible. Check out our BBB Listing. Return to your Denver Roof Hail Damage Experts Home Page.
