When something happens to your business’s roof, it can be unexpected and difficult to handle. The biggest obstacle is dealing with your roof insurance claim.
Fortunately, there are ways to get back to normal more quickly and be able to resume business as usual.
Colorado has a variety of weather and the heavy rain or snow we experience from time to time can have an adverse affect on your roof.
Nobody likes hearing their roof is damaged and dealing with insurance companies regarding a roof insurance claim isn’t a fun task. This difficulty is increased when you’re already extremely busy running a business. However, we make it easier to complete and move on to the more important things in your business.
Modern Roof Co has roof contractors that are experienced in helping you fix your business’s roof repairs as efficiently and cost-effectively as possible.
Starting the Roof Insurance Claim Process
The most difficult part of the process is that first call. Whether you notice a small crack in your business’s roof or that you need to cover wind damage as it has torn off multiple tiles, it’s important to call your insurance coverage provider as soon as possible for comprehensive coverage.
Here are some tips for simplifying this process:
- Schedule a day and time to meet with your adjuster – the sooner the better. Have them assess the damage and give you a rough estimate regarding the roof replacement cost.
- Asking the right questions can help you understand the process better.
- Before you move on to speak with a roofing company, make sure when you file a claim that it is fair. Talk with other business owners in your area and get their thoughts.
You can also do your own online research to ensure everything looks right on your end.

Different Types of Wear and Tear, Different Challenges
Damage to your business’s roof can occur in a variety of ways. Colorado experiences some of the most intense weather conditions, especially during the winter. Wind damage, storm damage, and hail damage have the potential to wreak total havoc on your business’s foundation.
Wind may not sound like it would affect your roof so much, but it’s a common occurrence. There are two main reasons for Colorado being so windy.
The pressure differences over the mountains and plains are a major factor. The strongest wind gust to hit Colorado occurred in 2016. During this extreme weather event, winds blew through the city at nearly 150 MPH.
Wind also poses a safety issue. If your roof has any weak spots, wind can get under your tiles and send them flying into other people or businesses.
Storm damage is also a big culprit for roofs everywhere, particularly in Colorado. In December 2006, a huge blizzard gave our great state a white Christmas we’d never forget.
According to the National Weather Service, snowfall amounts reached 44 inches in some locations. Especially in Colorado, we never know what can happen and when damage could occur!
Additionally, thunderstorms are also common in Colorado. Monsoon season starts in the Summer and brings a significant amount of rain, wind or hail with it. June and August have been home to more of Colorado’s destructive hail storms.
Hail damage is dangerous. Hail can range from small, non-damaging particles to large golf ball-sized monstrosities. Depending on how fast it’s falling, hail can severely damage your business’s roof. The thunderstorms that often come with it add even more pressure. This can result in an unfortunate roof leak.
Develop and Execute a Plan
Preventive maintenance is the best way to insure a stable roof system. If damage occurs, with everything else going on, you’re more likely to make impulse decisions and go with your insurance adjuster’s first suggestion – which could be costly and ill-informed.
