Don't Wait! Time is of the Essence When It Comes to Hail Damage Roof Repair

Known as “hail alley,” the Denver area is no stranger to costly hail damage. Denver residents experience wind and hail damage to roofs and properties every year. In recent years, a massive Denver hail storm caused over $2 billion in damages – leaving Denver residents with lots of cleanup and repairs to address.

Hailstones fall in various sizes ranging from pea-sized (0.25 inches) to tennis ball-sized (2.5 inches), and some hail may become as large as grapefruit-sized (4.5 inches). In 2019, Colorado’s largest hail stone officially on record measured 4.83 inches. Hail is something all Colorado residents must understand and prepare for, especially in the spring and fall. Spring brings the highest possibility for hail storms. Still, Denver residents must be prepared for the secondary peak hail season this fall.

Identifying Hail Damage

People often associate hail damage with vehicles. But wind and hail damage to roof and property is also a concern. Hail can be very destructive, and it’s important to assess damages following a hailstorm. When assessing your roof following a storm, look for some identifying factors that indicate hail damage, such as:

  • Black spots
  • Loss of granules on asphalt roofs
  • Spots in the roof that feel soft to the touch and/or appear shiny.
  • Split shingles
  • Impact marks or dents

When assessing roof damages following a hailstorm, it is important to inspect gutters and downspouts as well as hail damage to roof shingles. Scheduling a professional inspection following a major hailstorm can help determine the extent of the damage. A professional inspection from a Colorado roofing company can help determine the type of needed repairs and provide any verification necessary for insurance claims.

Address Hail Damage Quickly

It is critical to fix hail damage to your roof quickly. Delaying repairs causes your roof to become susceptible to even more damage. A damaged roof provides less protection from weather and other outside elements. Quickly addressing hail damage may save you money in the long run because as time moves on, what started as a simple repair may become more complex. Quickly addressing repairs may help avoid added issues such as mold and mildew resulting from leaks. Also, many homeowners’ insurance policies cover hail damage – but with time limitations. Therefore, it’s crucial to promptly address damages and repairs to file claims for reimbursement and help avoid further damage.
