December 21, 2016

Making the decision to have an existing roof replaced can be a big financial decision. Whether you have weather damage or your roof has aged and can’t be repaired, it is something to consider. However, you will be at ease knowing your home is safe thanks to a new roof. Learn more about some of the top reasons to increase the quality of your home with a new roof from your local Denver roofing company.

Insurance

The first step in replacing your roof is working with your insurance company. This will allow you to see if any or all the work can be covered by them. Once you determine coverage, you will also need to document the condition of your roof. This will be necessary when working with the insurance company. You will also need to work with a premier roofer to get a quote. In many cases, a roofer can assist with talking to the insurance company so you may want to reach out to them first. They can be help you with questions to make the process seamless. Upon working with your insurance company, they will send an adjuster to assess your situation. According to The Nest’s How to Claim a New Roof on Your Homeowner’s Insurance, they explain the adjuster will take their own pictures and may give you your settlement quote that day but can take up to a couple weeks.

Your Pre-Construction Tasks

While your roofing company will take care of all the work and heavy lifting, there are a few things you can do as a homeowner to help prepare. First, work with the company to determine when they will be there. This way, you can plan to leave if you need to be away from the work and noise. Next, check areas of the home with breakables that can easily fall. There will be constant hammering and other work done that causes vibration which can lead to items falling. Next, walk around your house and see if you need to move anything that may be in the way of the roofers. You want to be sure nothing falling off the roof will be damage, such as outdoor furniture, vehicles, decorations, etc.

What to Expect during the Installation

During the actual installation when the roofing company puts on your new roof, it might get a little loud. If you will be home, it is best to be prepared. If you have pets, consider boarding them or finding other arrangements if you can. They will work with you on timing but it typically takes just a few days. They will remove all old elements and then work on adding the new. Once all work is done, they will go back through and clean up all debris.
