Experts say if your trees and shrubs are stripped of foliage and your gutters have dents and dimples it's likely the roof of your home took a hit, too.

First thing, call your insurance company and ask an adjuster to take a look.

Then take your time choosing a reputable roofing contractor
Don't hire someone who comes knocking at your door.

Pikes Peak Regional Building has a list of certified roofers who are licensed to do business here.

Get a couple of estimates and ask for references and check them.

Also make sure roofers have workers comp and liability insurance.
Don't make a final payment until your roof has been inspected and you're satisfied.

Remember, hail damage to your car is only covered if you have comprehensive insurance.

To find a reputable auto body shop, ask friends for referrals and head to the Better Business Bureau's website.

Check to see the shop's rating and read about any complaints.
Be sure to get a couple of estimates in writing.
