How To Respond To Roof Damage After A Storm 

If your roof has been damaged by another wild Colorado storm, it’s important to act quickly and decisively in order to limit the potential repercussions to your home and property and get your roof repair or replacement covered by your insurance. Schultz Roofing And Repairs has over 30 years of experience helping homeowners across Northern Colorado protect their homes with high-quality roofs and durable roof repair work that lasts. We’ve got the storm response process down to a science! Let's walk through the steps you should take after a storm has passed through your area.

Plug Leaks And Holes

The first thing you should do after a storm has damaged your roof is to eliminate or limit the potential for damage to your home’s interior by plugging any leaks where they occur on the inside. Do not attempt to repair or plug the leak on your roof yourself — roofs are steep surfaces that are dangerous for non-professionals even before accounting for damaged areas! If there are any major leaks or holes in your roof that are visible to the naked eye, you’ll want to skip ahead to Step 4 and call us immediately so our roof repairman can fix the issue, or at least lay down tarps to prevent further damage to your roof and your home’s interior.

Protect Your Property

Depending on the specific location of leaks within your home, you may want to complete this step in conjunction with step one. Move items and accessories in your home out of the path out of leaks if you can, or cover them with a waterproof material like a tarp or a shower curtain if they are too large or heavy to move out of harm’s way. If you have valuable possessions stored near your house’s exterior walls or siding, you may want to move them, just in case high winds blow broken shingles and other roof damage debris down. In cases of particularly high winds and extreme weather, your gutters might also be a potential risk to detach, fall, and damage your property.

Document The Damage

This crucial step will help you compile the documentation you need to get the highest possible payout from your insurance company for roof repair or a brand new roof. Once you’ve stopped any leaks and ensured your property and your home’s interior are protected from major damage, inspect your roof and ceilings for damage, and take pictures and notes of what you find. We know you likely won’t be able to get up-close pictures of your roof’s damage without getting onto your roof, so our roofers will be able to help you with documenting that damage during your roof inspection. Not sure what you should be looking for when documenting storm damage to your roof? Here a couple of the most common types of damage:

WHY YOU NEED TO CALL SCHULTZ ROOFING BEFORE YOU CALL YOUR INSURANCE COMPANY

If you want to get the new roof your property needs instead of a cheap, short-term fix to your problems, it is critical that you call Schultz Roofing first before contacting your insurance provider. Our insurance liaisons have plenty of experience navigating the claims process and negotiating on your behalf, and the value of this professional negotiation assistance cannot be overstated. 

Think about it — your insurance company is a business, and their desire to make a profit directly conflicts with their mission to protect your roof and your home. They’re sure to give you some sort of payout after a storm damages your roof, but they’ll likely offer you the cheapest option available, a short-term fix for your roof from a less-experienced roofing company, unless you have help in negotiation.

This is where the value of choosing Schultz Roofing shines through! Our insurance liaisons know how the claims process works and know how to negotiate with insurance companies in the terms they understand. Time and time again, Northern Colorado homeowners choose us because they know we can get them fair-value payouts for their roof damage so their home can be protected with a sturdy new roof or dependable, long-term roof repair solutions.
