Take a quick drive around Superior’s Rock Creek neighborhood and it is impossible not to notice the abundance of roofing company signs planted in front yards.
After being battered by a damaging thunderstorm on the evening of July 7 — a system that dumped hailstones between an inch and an inch and a half in diameter on towns from Louisville to Arvada, according to the National Weather Service — nearly every single home on the neighborhood’s Briggs Place has one of the eye-catching signs in its yard.
Briggs Place resident Chuck Marrero said that while he wasn’t there to experience the storm himself, his home suffered in the storm, with insurance adjusters assessing about $22,000 in damage to his roof, paint, screens and other parts of his property.
He said a representative from Pachner Exteriors knocked on his door within days of the storm, and he is glad they did, helping him move along the claims process.
“I had my insurance — Farmers — come down and they totally agreed with Pachner’s assessment,” Marrero said, adding that his roof repair will cost about $11,000 alone. “The Pachner guy was very knowledgeable. He walked through with my claims adjuster and gave him details I wouldn’t have been able to provide.”
