Using a Certified Roofing Contractor

The importance of a sound roof.

Your home is designed to protect you, your family and your property from the elements, and the roof is the one part of the house that takes the most damage in providing you with this invaluable service. Yet it is the one area of the home that is most overlooked by people looking to purchase a home and by those looking to upgrade or maintain their existing home. However, without adequate maintenance and regular care your roof is liable to take leaks and can become damaged very easily in the worst of conditions.

The annual maintenance of your roof

Checking your roof should become an annual job and if you donít feel confident enough to know where to look then you should consult a professional who will come and do the job for you. Using a certified roofing contractor means that you can be sure the person you use is a professional who knows exactly what to look for and can give you the best advice if any work does happen to need doing. The perpetual beating of the sun, rain, wind, hail, snow and forming of ice puts pressure on any material or substance and your roof is by no means an exception to this rule. A certified roofing contractor can tell you whether you have adequate protection to ensure that your roof keeps up the work it is doing.

Going up on the roof yourself

When small cracks start to appear in a roof a leak may not become immediately visible and often the water can run away to areas you are unable to see. Without actually getting up into the roof itself you may not be able to see these small areas of damage yourself and clambering on the roof yourself is not everyoneís idea of a fun Saturday afternoon. The services of a certified roofing contractor should be called on to prevent damage to your roof and possible personal injury.

A qualified roofing contractor

A certified roofing contractor is experienced and qualified enough to complete any job from certifying your roof (usually for two years, during which time they are responsible for repairs) to completely ripping down your old roof and replacing it with a new and more effective one. A certified roofing contractor can advise you of the best tools, the best materials and the best systems to use to ensure that you are giving your house the protection it truly needs.

T.P.O. Roofing Systems

TPO: Thermoplastic Olefin or Polyolefin

TPO membranes are single-ply roof membranes constructed from ethylene propylene rubber. They are designed to combine the durability of rubber with the proven performance of hot-air weldable seams. They have been tested as having excellent resistance to ozone, are algae-resistant, environmentally friendly and safe to install. The material’s manufacturers are so confident in properly welded seams that the material is sometimes advertised as a monolithic (seamless) roof. Seam strengths are 3 to 4 times those of EPDM’s adhesive and tape seams. TPO is highly resistant to tears, impacts, and punctures with good flexibility to allow for building movement. TPO’s are available in white, light gray, and black with thicknesses of either 45 mils (.045″) or 60 mils (.060″). The width of the membrane depends on the manufacturer but they usually come in widths of six to twelve feet and are one-hundred feet in length.

The trend toward Energy Star-labeled, compliant reflective roofing is a huge benefit for TPO.
This high, sustained reflectivity is saving significant energy and money for building owners all over the United States. Because the TPO roofing system is mechanically-attached and insulation can be placed under the membrane during the roof installation, you can reduce your building.

Severe Hail storm in Lakewood, Colorado

A Storm Leaves Several Feet of Hail in Lakewood, CO on September 9th, 2013. Call Legacy Roofing for a Free Hail Damage Repair estimate – 720-541-5000
Hail Damage repair is the main reason why 68% of roofs are repaired in Colorado. Even pea sized hail will cause a dark area where the grains or granules of the shingle have been knocked off and the base of the shingle is exposed. Recent hail impacts have a shiny look because the base material has been freshly exposed, eventually the “bruised” area will become weathered. Legacy provides hail damage repair or replacement estimate

Lakewood, Colorado Hail Damage Repair

How does hail damage affect my roof? Hail damage to asphalt shingles includes severe granule loss, material removal at the edges of the shingles and penetration. New asphalt shingles are more resistant to hail impact than older shingles since the asphalt becomes more brittle with age. Warmer shingles are more compliant and more resistant to fracture from hail when compared with colder shingles. Shingles rely on a structurally sound substrate for hail damage resistance. Flexible roof sheathing allows the shingles to flex during impact causing damage, while more rigid roof sheathing supports the shingle during impact resulting in less shingle damage.

How To File A Roof Claim

Approved Insurance Claims

How to File a Roof Claim

1
Make sure to write down the date and time of the hail damage that resulted from this storm. If you were unable to take pictures to show the adjuster assigned to your claim, do a quick search online in your location to find news pictures of the hail that fell in your area. Save this information so you can show your insurance adjuster.

2

Contact Legacy Roofing for a free inspection and have us confirm the damage is from hail. When Legacy Roofing puts together the estimate, ensure we differentiate which damage is from wear and tear and which damage is from the recent hail storm. Also advise your Legacy Representative to inspect other items on your property that may have been damaged from the hail such as AC units, gutters, paint, windows, and screens. Choose Colorado’s Preferred Roofing Contractor with a good reputation in the event the company needs to return for additional work that needs to be completed. Ask if they are willing to be present when the insurance adjuster comes out to your home. We always have the HomeOwner’s Best interest during the inspection.
3
Investigate the specific policy and your state regulations to ensure that your insurance company covers code upgrades. It is prohibited in most states for an insurance company to cancel your policy due to severe weather-related events that lead to damages. There is no way to predict Natural Disaster, therefore we ensure we get the most out of your claim so this is not common the Insurance Company will revisit a claim for Roof Damage.
4
File the claim with your insurance company. When you call and speak with a representative, give them the date the damage occurred and offer to contact Legacy for pictures to send over as well as the estimates from the Legacy Roofing. The insurance company will still send someone out, but it helps that you are offering this information up front.
5
After you have filed the claim, Have your Legacy Rep meet with the adjuster at the scheduled time. If possible, have a representative from Legacy roofing come out to meet with the adjuster so they can compare notes. Once the adjuster has spoken with Legacy’s Contractor, they will provide you with the settlement amount at that time, or they may have to review the notes further.
6
Complete the work as soon as possible after your claim has been approved. If you are approved for the full amount, your insurance company will send you a check for that amount, less the deductible, so you can get the work done. Sometimes the insurance company may not approve the full amount and in this case, Legacy will need to dispute the settlement.
7
Cash in on any rewards or benefits Legacy is offering you. This could range from an advertising fee to place a yard sign on your property, or you could receive a referral fee from sending the company additional customers. It is vital that you understand the difference between working directly with the contractor for these benefits and receiving rebates and kickbacks. It is illegal to receive rebates and kickbacks and not pay deductibles.

The Durability of Standing Seam Metal Roofing

The roof is the one part of the house that takes the most damage when protecting us from the elements. It has to cope with extreme conditions ranging from wintry ice to summer sun and often it can face both extremes at the same time. Many substances simply can not withstand this diverse a range of abuse meaning it is very important to select strong roofing made from a durable and resistant material that will withstand just about anything. Advances in technology have seen various new forms of roofing as well as advances in old techniques and reduces in cost, so the options available when selecting good roofing are wide.

Maintenance of your metal roof

For all of the work that a roof does you would expect that it would be a part of housing and home maintenance that people took very seriously, but unfortunately it is a factor that is often overlooked until the worst happens. Many people do not maintain their roof or even have it checked on a regular basis but prevention is a much better option than cure. By having regular checks on your roof you can prevent costly repairs when things go wrong.

Traditional roofing material compared to standing seam metal roofing

Asphalt and modified bitumen have previously been the most common choice when it comes to selecting a material for your roof, however in more recent years standing seam metal roofing has increased in popularity as it has decreased in cost and it’s durability, protection and flexibility have increased. Standing seam metal roofing has much to offer; it is fire resistant, weather resistant, can be easily formed to fit your roof and has become even easier to install. In fact, standing seam metal roofing meets the very highest of standards when it comes to fire resistance and wind and hail resistance.

The life of your standing seam metal roofing

Standing seam metal roofing is very unlikely to rot, mould, split or crack. For this reason a standing seam metal roofing system means you can enjoy a long life from your roof with comparably low maintenance costs. It is also usually created from recycled products and is fully recyclable itself so it is a sustainable choice for the ecologically minded amongst you. The options are virtually limitless if you decide on standing seam metal roofing, and not least because of the numerous metals that are on offer. Copper, aluminum, galvanized or stainless steel and a range of other metals are commonly used and each has their own look, feel and uses.

Standing seam metal roofing and the environmental roof

Standing seam metal roofing offers a life of 50 years or more making it much longer lasting than other traditional methods employed in many houses. It is usually made up of 50% recycled material and 100% of your standing seam metal roofing will be recycled in the event that it does eventually need replacing. Conversely, asphalt requires a huge amount of oil every year to create shingles that last an average of 15 years. At the end of their life they are then disposed of in landfill sites wasting yet more of the?world’s resources. Standing seam metal roofing also means you will use less energy, conserving yet more resources and lowering your summer energy bills. A standing seam metal roof reflects approximately 70% of the sun’s rays meaning you will spend a lot less keeping your air conditioning unit running.
