Westminster Roofing Companies and Insurance Claims


If you’ve lived in Colorado for any length of time, you probably know that spring time can mean Westminster roof replacement time. Hail, torrential downpours, and high winds can damage roofing, siding, windows, and landscaping. Many people make the mistake of thinking that their homeowners insurance will automatically cover the full replacement cost of a roof. Even if you have a low deductible, there are some things to keep in mind about your coverage so you know what to expect should you need a new roof.

If your roof is only a few years old and it is damaged in a storm, chances are you will be out your deductible for your roof repair or replacement, but that’s about it. Where obstacles might appear is getting insurance to cover the lion’s share of replacing an older roof. It is important to fully understand the coverage you are carrying so that you won’t be surprised by a huge out of pocket expense in the event of a natural disaster.

Codes and ordinances change all the time with the advancement of technology and improvement of building materials. Generally speaking, insurance is designed to repair and replace items on your home to its existing condition. It is not for improving the item or bringing it up to code, if materials have been improved or building ordinances have been changed. In order to get paid for bringing your home up to code you need to have something known Code Coverage in your existing policy. It is vitally important to understand Ordinance or Law Coverage: What it is, and Why You Need It.

What is it?

Code coverage is a clause in your insurance policy that basically says the insurance will pay to repair your structure, and/or pay to bring your structure up to code in the event that local building ordinances have changed. It also covers the cost of demolishing existing fabrication in order to re-build to bring everything up to code. In most instances permits cannot be issued unless it is understood that any existing work will be brought up to current code standards.

When do you need it?

If you live in an older home or your roof is approaching 10 years or older, chances are you need it. Can it be used at any time to bring an existing structure up to code? No, it is triggered in the event of a loss. Said loss must be covered by your policy. If your older roof is damaged and you are not carrying code insurance, your insurance company will cover the cost of replacing the roof in its original condition but the cost of bringing it up to code will be the homeowner’s responsibility. In most cases that means that the insurance company will be paying very little and the homeowner will be shelling out quite a lot.

Roof insurance claims can be tricky so it’s important to understand your coverage long before the first hailstone falls. Call the roofing experts at Roof Dr. to come and inspect your roof. They can alert you to any existing problems and let you know if any additional insurance coverage may be needed. Give us a call today for more information at

The 3 Top Types of Roofing Shingles


February 19, 2016

Roofs stabilize your property, protect your family from weather, and enhance the attractive beauty and comfortable atmosphere of your home. However, installing or upgrading a roof can often require you to make very difficult decisions. One of the most pivotal decisions you must make involves selecting the type of roofing shingle to use. If you are interested in having a roof installed or upgraded, it would be helpful to learn about the top types of roofing shingles that Westminster roofing companies can provide.   

Asphalt

Asphalt shingles are among the most commonly used roofing materials. Asphalt shingle roofs are substantially more affordable than other options. For instance, the asphalt material is inexpensive, the roof layers are relatively easy to install, and in turn you can save money from the affordable material and labor costs. The shingles are also very effective and durable, which can prevent you from needing to make repairs or replacements. Asphalt shingles are especially beneficial because of the versatile styles and shingle designs that are available. For instance, you can choose from a diverse range of different colors, sizes, shapes, and designs. The extensive options should allow you to easily find and select an asphalt shingle style that is most conducive for your home and appealing to your aesthetic preferences.      

Wood

The best Westminster Roofing companies can also install wood shake roofing shingles. Wood roofs are mostly cherished due to the natural, unique, and timeless appearance of the shingles. Wooden shingles are especially appropriate for Colorado roofs, for the rustic appearance of the shingle roofs match and compliment the wilderness landscapes and mountain sceneries that permeate throughout the state. Wood shingles are generally more expensive than asphalt shingles. However, the thicker material of the wood can provide superior protection from the elements, better insulation in your home, and the insulation can reduce your energy or electricity costs by keeping your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. You can also choose from many different species of wood. The top wood species used for roofing shingles include cedar, redwood, pine, and cypress.

Slate

You can also have premier Colorado roofing specialists install slate shingles. Slate derives from natural stone material that can be cut, grinded, and compressed to form effective roofing shingles. Many people enjoy the superior and prestigious appearance of slate roofs. For instance, the slate roofing shingles display a graceful elegance and a lavish splendor that can enrich the beautiful appearance and luxurious ambiance of your home. The natural stone material also makes the slate shingles very hard and extremely durable. Although the natural stone material can be more expensive than other options, the durability and longevity makes the slate shingles cost-effective because the roofs can withstand storms, remain intact, and maintain their attractive appearance for extensive periods of time and without needing to be repaired or replaced.

Why it’s Important to Get Your Westminster Roof Inspected


A roof is the most important, but vulnerable asset of a home or building. Smart owners know the importance of fixing small leaks and other problems before they turn into something more problematic. Professional roof inspections can help maintain a roof’s life expectancy and its continued efficiency. 

When conducting a Westminster roof inspection, here are some things a roofing professional will examine:

Areas on the roof that are weathering
Debris removal
Storm damage (hail, wind uplift, etc.)
Leak assessment
Drainage issues

It’s important to have a professional roof inspection at least once or twice a year to maintain the quality and effectiveness of a roof. The best times to schedule a roof inspection is once before severe weather and once after. If you have a warranty, it’s especially important to keep regular inspection appointments. Most manufacturers state that a warranty is void if the roof is not maintained.   

Don’t let your roof surprise you with large and costly problems. Call The Roof Dr. to schedule Denver roof repairs and ensure that your roof and home will remain problem free.
