Downtown we saw several trees uprooted and laying down. We saw one laying on top of a car in the driveway of the house.
News sites and social media were blowing up with photos and videos of trees falling over, trucks over-turned, and roofs blowing off houses, but the news sites and social media weren’t the only things that began blowing up. Our phones did too! We immediately began getting dozens of phone calls from panicked, or nervous homeowners telling us that they were missing shingles or that they just wanted us to check their roofs for any potential damage.
All of this is directly on the heels of the massive hail storm that hit the region on July 28, 2016. We still have over 4 dozen roofs damaged from the hail storm that are in our queue for replacement and now we are responding as best as we can to the devastation caused by the “Colorado Hurricane” of 2017.
Even though you will be reading this a few weeks after this storm has come and gone, we would like to let you know what to do if something like this happens again.
Homestead Roofing has a 7-year workmanship warranty. If you have shingles that are damaged in a wind storm, in most cases our warranty will cover that, though there may be special circumstances that have to be considered on a case-by-case situation. If your shingles have been damaged by blowing debris, tree limbs, or trees, this is not covered under the labor warranty. If you ever think that you may have damage from wind or hail, please call our office and ask for an inspection. Our goal is to treat you as we would want to be treated if it were our own homes affected by such a devastating storm. In the event of a major weather catastrophe, we will respond as fast as we can. In the case of an event that affects huge parts of the metro area and hundreds or thousands of people, we do try to prioritize the calls based on urgency.
As always, everyone here at Homestead Roofing is honored to serve you and thank you for trusting us with your home and roofing needs.
