When you have made the investment into a new roof, you feel pretty confident that you won’t have any problems in the foreseeable future. Unfortunately, Mother Nature can have other ideas. The weather in the Denver, Colorado area can be quite intense from time to time, and serious hail conditions can result in needing roof repair even if you have a new roof.
After any intense storm, it is a good idea to inspect your home’s roof to see if there has been any damage. Depending on the extent of the damage, you may want to file an insurance claim to get help with paying for the roof repair. If you don’t check out your roof right away, however, and find out later that there was damage, the insurance company may not pay out on the claim.
It isn’t always a good idea to file a claim for roof repair. If the cost of repairs is below your deductible or even just a few hundred dollars over it, the amount you would get may not be worth the hit to your record with the insurance company. Furthermore, if you have an older roof that needs only minor roof repair, the insurance company could expect you to replace the roof at your own expense if they realize its age during the claim process.
Whichever way you go – insurance claim or self-pay – the important thing is to take care of the inspection and subsequent roof repair as quickly as possible after a storm, so water leaks do not result in added damage to the structure and even perhaps to interior walls, ceilings, and your belongings.
