Hail Damage: What to Expect

The Colorado Front Range is usually called the Hail Capitol because the Colorado Springs to Denver metro area gets more severe hail events than anywhere else in the county. On average, this area gets pummeled by an average of 13 hail storms per year.

Although Colorado can get any type of hail at any time during the spring and summer, severe thunderstorm warnings often produce the larger, more damaging hail between April 15 and June 20.

These consistent hail storms can inflict significant damage on your home, especially your roof, as it takes the harshest beating when hailstorms strike. Roof hail damage in Denver Metro and along the Front Range can be quite extensive and lead to even more problems if not noticed and fixed in time.
