Welcome to FindLaw's Cases & Codes, a free source of state and federal court opinions, state laws, and the United States Code. For more information about the legal concepts addressed by these cases and statutes, visit FindLaw's Learn About the Law.

(1) A roofing contractor that performs roofing work, the payment for which will be made from the proceeds of a property and casualty insurance policy issued pursuant to part 1 of article 4 of title 10, C.R.S., shall not advertise or promise to pay, waive, or rebate all or part of any insurance deductible applicable to the claim for payment for roofing work on the covered residential property.

(2) If a roofing contractor violates subsection (1) of this section:

(a) The insurer to whom the property owner submitted the claim for payment for the roofing work is not obligated to consider the estimate of costs for the roofing work prepared by the roofing contractor;  and

(b) The property owner whose residential property is insured under the property and casualty insurance policy or the insurer that issued the policy may bring an action against the roofing contractor in a court of competent jurisdiction to recover damages sustained by the property owner or insurer as a consequence of the violation.

(3) A roofing contractor soliciting roofing services in this state shall not claim to be or act as a public insurance adjuster adjusting claims for losses or damages. Nothing in this article prevents a public insurance adjuster licensed pursuant to section 10-2-417, C.R.S., from acting or holding himself or herself out as a public insurance adjuster. Nothing in this subsection (3) precludes a roofing contractor from discussing, on behalf of the property owner, the scope of repairs with a property and casualty insurer when the roofing contractor has a valid contract with the property owner of the residential property on which the roofing contractor has contracted to perform roofing work.
