Voted "Best of the Springs" by our Colorado Springs neighbors
Having your roof damaged by the Colorado weather is about as fun as getting new tires. If your house was hit by hail larger than quarter size, or hurricane force winds, or a bomb cyclone, or whatever else... we're truly sorry. No one is excited about a damaged roof. But those things are a reality here. If you call Colorado Springs home like we do, it's not if one of those things is going to happen, its when.
When your roof is damaged, our hope is to do everything within our power to take good care of you and make your roof repair or replacement as smooth and delightful of an experience as it can possibly be.
Good question. Thanks for asking. If you don't get your roof repaired when it's damaged, eventually water will start to find its way into your house, into your insulation, into your drywall and cause big, nasty, expensive problems. This is exactly why your homeowner's insurance pays for roof replacement, so they don't have to pay for more expensive issues later.
If you roof is damaged when you put your house on the market, it will show up on the inspection report. Roofs are notorious deal breakers. This means you'll probably have to lower your asking price to offset the cost of a new roof.
Most homeowner's insurance policies give you one year from the "date of loss" meaning the date the damaged occurred to file a claim for a new roof. If you go past that one year mark, you may not be covered by insurance and have to pay for the roof out of pocket.
It's important to understand your homeowner's insurance coverage before a weather event happens. After the damage is done it'll be too late to make updates to your policy.
THE FIRST STEP IN THE ROOF REPAIR PROCESS
Hopefully, you have good coverage. If so, the first step in the process of repairing your roof is to call a reputable roofing contractor to come take a look at your roof and assess the damage. You don't want to file a claim quite yet because if you do and your insurance company sends out an adjuster only to find that your roof isn't damaged, it count be a black mark on your record.

HOMEfix has a fundamentally different approach to roofing
It’s hard to find a roofing contractor in Colorado Springs that you can feel comfortable with and trust. Because of that, we’ve chosen to take a fundamentally different approach to the roofing. Here’s how…
WE ONLY SERVE THE PIKES PEAK REGION
When a big hailstorm comes through town, roofers and con artists descend on the Colorado Springs area like a plague. We were founded right here in 2007 and only serve the Pike's Peak region from Monument to Fountain and Falcon to Woodland Park. We love this beautiful city.
ASSESSMENTS ARE ALWAYS FREE
We aren’t going to charge you just to get up on your roof and let you know whether your roof is damaged or not. That’s crazy. Serving you and your family is well worth our time.
WE DON'T SOLICIT
You will never find us knocking on your door... unless you're expecting us. We simply don't solicit, which is extremely common in roofing. All of our customers have either been referred by other customers or have requested that we come out for a free roof assessment.
We're able to take this approach because we’re not a roofing contractor exclusively, we also offer remodeling and handyman services. This means that we don’t solely depend on roofing sales for our livelihood and therefore don’t have to be so aggressive. We’d love to help you make the roofing process as painless as possible.
WE TELL YOU THE TRUTH
We believe that trusted is earned and should never be assumed. If we get up on your roof and find that it isn’t damaged, we’ll tell you so! We hope to earn your trust and be your go-to guys for everything under your roof for many years to come.
Also we'll let you know when it’s not in your best interest to file an insurance claim. In some circumstances, it might not make sense. Here's an example, if your deductible is $1,000 and the cost to repair your roof is only $1,100, it's far better to pay for the repair rather than filing a claim. Every claim that
you file is added to your record. Saving those claims for when you really need them will help to keep your premiums as low as possible.
WE DON'T ASK YOU TO SIGN A CONTRACT
If your roof is damaged, we won’t ask you to sign a contract and try to lock you into anything. We work off of handshakes because we trust you. What we will do is walk you through the claim filing process every step of the way and even help you file the claim if you could use some help. We've helped a lot of people navigate the insurance process and worked with every major insurance carrier.
WE'LL MEET YOUR ADJUSTER
When your insurance company schedules a time for their adjuster to come out and assess your roof, we'll meet them there to make sure you get the full amount that you're entitled to. Our goal is to do everything we can to make sure your only out of pocket expense is your deductible.
HAIL RESISTANT MATERIALS
A discount roofing contractor will try to push planned obsolescence (i.e. cheap materials) on you to try to secure future business when another storm comes through. We offer hail and wind resistant materials that can help you avoid filing claim after claim. If we can install a roof that doesn’t need to be replaced every 5 years, you’ll be a happy customer. Your happiness is valuable to us.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST TO REPLACE A ROOF?
Replacing your roof should only cost your homeowner’s insurance deductible. With that in mind, it’s very important to know what your deductible is now so you aren’t surprised after the Colorado weather destroys your roof. If you find that you can't afford your deductible, make changes now and be financially ready for the next hailstorm or bomb cyclone... cause its coming.
Of course you have the option to upgrade your roofing material to avoid having to file claim after claim. Along those lines, we're now installing an exciting new synthetic shingle product called F-Wave (by Revia). F-Wave shingles are hail, wind, fire, and color-fade resistant. F-Wave comes with the only 5 year warranty in the roofing industry (on up to class 4 hail). As well as a 15 year wind warranty and a 15 year color fade warranty. The most incredible part though is that F-Wave has properties that allow it to make dents disappear using only the heat of the sun. It's not science fiction. Watch what happens after it gets a direct hit from a hammer by going here.
Has melting snow revealed new water damage? That means your roof is leaking and need to be repaired as soon as possible. Or are you worried that one of southern Colorado's famous thunderstorms brought some hail damage? Whatever the issue, we're here to help!
As your trusted roofing experts since 2007, you can count on the Colorado Spring roofing team at Homefix to provide you with an honest assessment of your roof's condition. And if you do have considerable damage — we'll guide you through every step of the insurance process as you file a claim and get the money necessary to make repairs. Finally, if you don't have any damage, we'll help give you peace of mind.
In May 2019, it hit the local news that thousands of roofs in Colorado Springs were failing inspection. This was due to roofs simply not being built to code. It was extremely painful for us to watch as guys that care deeply about our neighbors.
This is what happens when roofing companies do work in several different cities, regions, and states. The larger area they serve, the more difficult it becomes to stay up to date on code changes here in Colorado. By being local, its a lot more simple for us. All we have to do is abide by Pike's Peak Regional Building Department code.
NOT ALL ROOFERS ARE CREATED EQUAL
Here's why you want to make sure you hire a reputable contractor:
OUR ROOFS PASS INSPECTION
If you have your roof replaced by HOMEfix, it will pass inspection. Even better, you won’t have to wait for your contractor to come out and fix the roof again to meet code while they’re in a fight over who’s going to pay for it. Sidestep all that by choosing the right company.
DO HOMEFIX ROOFS EVER FAIL INSPECTION?
Occasionally we have an inspection fail due to something small, but we fix it as quickly as possible and pass every time. We do whatever it takes. We offer a 5 year warranty on materials and labor.
WHEN SHOULD I CONTACT MY LOCAL COLORADO SPRINGS ROOFING CONTRACTOR?
Whenever you think that you roof may be damaged. It is never an inconvenience to us to come check it out. We're happy to do it. The two of the most common ways that a roof suffers damage in the Colorado Springs area are high winds and hail any larger than quarter size. And if you've lived in The Springs for more than a year, there's a good chance that your roof has been damaged sometime in the last 5 years.
If your roof has only been subjected to a small amount of wind and hail damage, it's possible that it can be easily fixed with minor repairs. However, if we find extensive damage on your roof, it may be time to invest in a full roof replacement. In addition to our commitment to providing the highest quality of care to our residential roofing customers, we also back our roof replacements with a 5-year warranty. This means that if something goes wrong after your roof replacement within 5 years of the project completion, we'll fix it and fix it quickly!
NAVIGATING THE INSURANCE CLAIMS PROCESS
The hassle of dealing with insurance companies is one of the biggest reasons that so many Colorado Springs homeowners avoid having their roof professionally inspected at the first sign of trouble. From filing your claim to going back-and-forth with your claim adjuster over the phone and swimming through mountains of paperwork — the entire process can be very intimidating without an advocate by your side.
At HOMEfix, we're more than just your local roofing contractor — we're your local insurance specialists as well. With many years of combined experience working in the industry, we know exactly how to make sure that your insurance company covers every roof repair or replacement cost that they should.
Once you file a claim, you can expect your insurance claim adjuster to complete their own inspection of the roof and file a report detailing which repairs are covered by your policy and which costs you are responsible for. We will happily help you make sense of your insurance report so you understand exactly what's being covered as well as what your options are. If we notice that they've missed something, we are happy to step in and advocate on your behalf. Don't let the fear of your insurance company prevent you from getting the roof inspection and repairs that your home needs!
