Its that time of year again to be on the lookout and prepare for hail damage. Northern Colorado faced quite a lot of thunderstorms this Spring, and with it a lot of rain and hail. Older roofs are not always rated to withstand hail damage. First thing to do if you suspect you might have hail damage is to inspect the roof.

You want to have your roof inspected for any damage including signs of cracked or missing shingles, dents, punctured or displaced roofing materials. You should also take note of any leaks or water damage inside your home as well. This can include mold or moisture built up in the crawl spaces of your attic. Any damage you see should be documented by your roofers or yourself this is for insurance purposes and makes the process of filing a claim all the easier. Next thing you want to do is reach out to your insurance company and report the hail damage and initiate a claim.

Let select Roofing Contractors help you today put your mind and ease and get you back to concentrating on the more important things in life. If you live in Fort Collins or other North Front Range communities, Class IV shingles are becoming not only standardized, but required on all new construction. These new class IV shingles are more resistant to impacts and less likely to be damaged by average hail conditions. However, this does not apply to older houses and businesses. If a roof is over 10 years old, it may be time to upgrade to Class IV shingles. Select Roofing Contractors is adept with Class IV shingle installation and can retrofit older roofs (often with a reroof) to be compliant with current roofing codes.
