Roofing Newsletter June 2014 Allied Roofing Denver: Lead Time, Hail Damage

Summer has come into full swing for Colorado. Seasonal storms have arrived ahead of schedule bringing hail storms, flash flooding, and the possibilities of tragic loss. Damages have been minimal this year for most Colorado residents, but it’s a great idea to get the ball rolling with property maintenance, inspections, and upgrades.

Maintenance is a powerful key when it comes to property ownership, a key that will save money long term.  A valid insurance claim for roof shingle damage, damage to siding from hail, can be properly assessed by one of our qualified inspectors. With a long history of integrity we value your feedback. Please use the contact form below with any comments, suggestions, requests for quick response.

Roof damage claims: How to, Q and A

Has a hail storm recently ripped through town and left the neighborhood full of roofing vultures? Some of the scavenger types show up first and dominate the market in a small way. Sadly many claims are denied and cancellation letters sent to unsuspecting homeowners. The horror stories about contingency contracts, leaks, permits not signed off and the worst, down payment ditching by the very few scam artists that exist. Here is a simple list of exactly what to do in case of a hail storm: 1. Do your own visual inspection of the property

  •      Look at the paint on all sides above shoulder level, or about the four foot mark.
  • Check the aluminum downspouts for pock marks, pits and missing paint.
  • Look at the mailbox for any signs of hail pitting or damage.
  • Inspect the fences on all sides and the top is there any hail damage?
  • Take pictures of the damage or suspected damage right away.

2. Make  the right contacts fast.

  •     Call the insurance claims department and ask if any claims have been approved near your address, if no claims have been approved, chances are that you could end up with a hail claim denial letter, or worse a letter stating that in the next one year a roof replacement is required or face the insurance cancellation letter.
  •     Contact Allied Roofing and any other very established quality roof contractor, yes we refer other good companies to bid against us, and let you be the best decision maker possible. This is an absolutely free service all the way around.
  • Feel free to email pictures and any information to us for honest review.
  • If the claim looks solid an on site inspection is the right thing to do.
  • Have us come look at the damage, take pictures, and make contact with the insurance company.
  • Get everything in writing, an estimated date of service.

3. Resist the pressure and save trouble down the road.

  •     Do not sign a contract on the first or even second visit, make sure your claim is going to get approved by completing all of the steps above.
  •   Do not believe the promises, no roofing company can exactly predict your individual damage situation, insurance policy terms and conditions, and the outcome of your roof hail damage claim.

4. Make the right decisions.  A skilled roof sales person can help explain energy efficiency, attic ventilation, insulation, help choose a roof shingle color to match the home properly, and cover all the bases of roof replacement. That way, your home gets the best quality product at the best price. Energy efficiency is a top consideration, and this is an opportunity to upgrade energy efficiency without spending extra money.

It’s Not Terrible it’s Repairable! Flat Roof In Progress

It’s all in the details. (Roof pipe jack reveals all)

The metal boot on a pipe jack is to be “tucked under” the felt on the high side.

Our comprehensive installation methods are checked and reviewed on each project. This GAF Weathered Wood Timberline HD roof was installed on a Pearl Mack brick home in North Denver.

This roof is complete with ventilation, Shinglevent II ridge vent, to be exact. The existing intake vents provide about 800″sq. of net free area. The ridge vent adds 540″ sq. bringing the system to a great level of energy efficiency.

On this home, Allied also installed new fascia board to the gables.

How to detect a Rain Gutter Leak or Problem

Overflowing Rain Gutters send water in every direction.

Overflowing Rain Gutters are often the sign of a problem.

There are several sources that can cause a rain gutter to overflow.

The best way to detect a problem is, grab a rain coat and head outside while it’s raining. Snow and Ice melting can also expose the roofing underlayment and roof sheet metal to leaks from water backing up. When water backs up on the gutter or roof it goes in between the roof and attic.

Due to rain gutter problems water damage will eventually show up as expensive soffit damage, fascia damage or interior damages.

Water damage from lack of  gutter cleaning / repair can destroy ceilings, walls, floors, cause mold, and even cause concrete foundation cracks to appear. Basements can easily be flooded.

By having a skilled roofing mechanic adjust, clean, repair and maintain rain gutters, customers can save large amounts of money. When exterior home repairs are neglected they age very quickly because of the Sun’s Ultra Violet effects and the elements of weather, damaging insects and rodents etc.

The easiest way to detect a problem with your rain gutters is to schedule a Rain Gutter Cleaning with Allied Roofing. That includes a free roof inspection and exterior home maintenance inspection.

The easiest way to get your gutters cleaning done is to please call Allied at:

Highland Denver Colorado Roof and Siding Replacement.

Here is a roof project I completed in 2009. A slightly steep roof and “gingerbread wood siding” gives this beautiful house great curb appeal. It still looks great after 3 years. There have been years when Allied Roofing is busy in the Highland Neighborhood. Many of our customers are part of a group called Highland Mommies. It’s a great network. I’ve enjoyed working in the neighborhood and building such great friendships. The Highland Mom’s have referred Allied Roofing to many of our new and repeat customers. Our great customers keep coming back. Thank you Highland Mommies!
