5 Tips for Best Colorado Springs Roof Replacement
Get Ahead on Hiring
When a serious storm hits, hundreds to thousands of Colorado Springs residents will be setting up inspections and hiring within a few days of the storm. If you wait until after the hail is stopped, you’re already behind.
Instead of waiting until damage to do your research, use a combination of reviews and local years of service to make a short list of great roofing contractors. When a big storm hits you can grab your list instead of reading reviews.
Get Ahead on Insurance Claims
Insurance claims are never fun but unless you want to pay for an entire new roof instead of a deductible, they must be done. The two best things you can do for easier insurance claims is by starting the claims process early and by hiring a roofer that will assist you in the claims process. Using a roofer to assist you, sending documents as soon as possible, and keeping up contact with your agent will drastically speed up the process.
Go for Impact Resistant Roofing
Impact resistant (IR) has become one of the most popular types of roofing in Colorado thanks to its toughness and insurance premium discounts. Unfortunately, many homeowners aren’t aware of IR materials or the benefits they provide. Always talk to your roofer about IR materials and how they can benefit you.
Treat the Roofing Crew
The easiest way to increase your chances of a great job? Feed the crew! Some cookies, coffee, or sports drinks shows the crew you care that they’re working hard on your job and makes them more likely to care more. Anytime you hire a good roofer you should expect a good, finished product, but feeding the replacement crew can boost your chances of the best job possible.
Listen to Requests
Your roofing company will have simple requests for the homeowner like clearing the driveway or providing power to the crew. Take notes of any recommended requests from the roofer so your job goes off without a hitch.
Achieving the Best Colorado Springs Roof Project
Having your roof replacement go off well involves getting ahead of the rest of the pack, knowing what to do with insurance claims, and treating the crew. It will take a little extra effort to take care of everything but if you do – you’ll be rewarded with a great roof replacement.
