If you live in Colorado, roof hail damage is just a fact of life. Your neighbor may even be on his third roof since you met him; while he got on top of each storm, you’ve sat back to wait for the “real” damage. But don’t delay. Call your local, hometown family-owned roofer – Summit Roofing Solutions — today.
In Colorado, you can pretty much count on at least three to four hail events per year. In fact, in 2018, it was No. 3 in the country for the most hail events at 332, according to the Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association (RIIA). Know that most hail events in Colorado’s Front Range, also known as Hail Alley, result in millions in damage to homes and vehicles. And up to half of your homeowner’s insurance premium may be going to paying hail and wind damage, according to RIIA.
5 signs of roof hail damage
Here are five signs that your roof has been damaged by a hail storm:
- Split or missing pieces of your shingles.
- circular cracking
- dents or dimples in asphalt shingles
- dents or cracks in ridge caps.
- dents in the metal surfaces on your roof.
What you can’t see with the naked eye from the ground could be growing worse as your roof’s exposure to the elements weakens its structure. According to wikiHow, your roof can withstand from five to six years of the normal elements, which weaken it, giving hail a ready playground for destruction.
There’s no time to delay getting your home evaluated for roof hail damage. But beware of the door-to-door storm chasers knocking on your door, promising cash back to cover your deductible. They’re likely cutting corners. In fact, the Colorado legislature made this practice illegal in 2012 through Senate Bill 12-038.
