Surviving the Storm: Navigating the Aftermath of Hail Damage

Every year, Colorado homeowners from one end of the state to the other struggle to deal with the effects of massive hailstones. Colorado’s famous hail storms have been known to cause severe damage to roofs, windows, and more. After the hail stops falling, navigating repairs can feel like another storm on its own. If you’re unsure where to start when it comes to repairs, you’re not on your own. Here are some expert tips from Bordner Home Solutions for navigating the aftermath of hail damage. 

Find a Trustworthy Repair Company

Finding a good repair company with a trustworthy reputation is perhaps the most important step when it comes to dealing with hail damage. Though there are some minor repairs you can fix on your own, it’s best to leave the trademarks of a hail storm, like roof and window damage, to the professionals to prevent future problems with leaking and heat or cold transfer. That means, come storm season, you’re looking for a quality company that knows their stuff. 

Avoiding Storm Chasers

Storm chasers are repair companies that come in the wake of big storms to offer their repair services to people in need. They often come from out of state, and are regularly seen knocking door-to-door, offering free inspections. While they may seem like a good go-to, they’re generally to be avoided. 

Since storm chasers are rarely local companies, they’re unable to offer the personalized expertise that Colorado-based companies are built on. With the extreme weather Colorado is known for, local expertise can make all the difference towards long-lasting repairs on windows and roofs. Additionally, storm chasers often leave town, following the storm to the next area of damage. For some companies, it can be nearly impossible to get follow-up service, even if they’ve missed a damaged area. 

Overall, storm chasers are often unreliable and untrustworthy. It’s best to do your research and select a repair company that you can really count on. 

What to Look For

To avoid choosing a storm chaser during post-hail repair, here are a few things to look out for.
