Colorado’s hail season is approaching and it’s time to make sure that your roof and windows are ready to take a beating. From mid-April to mid-August, Colorado’s Front Range communities are right in the line of fire, and will get the highest frequency of large hail. This is not just numbers for Colorado, or North America, but for the world!
Millions of Dollars in Hail Damage to Colorado’s Front Range
Colorado’s Front Range, a.k.a. “Hail Alley” can usually count on three or four catastrophic hail storms a year. Over the past 10 years, these vicious storms have caused more than $3 billion in damages. In September 2014, the Denver Metro area alone suffered $213.3 million in damages.
Hail storm damage can lead to moisture problems
When the hailstorm hits, your roof and windows are the most at risk for damage. In severe storms, large hail can threaten the integrity of your roof and windows, leaving them susceptible to water damage, and eventually mold. It’s been a long cold, snowy winter that could have already taken its toll on your roof, gutters, windows and the structure of your home. If you live in a hailstorm prone area of Colorado, talk to Metro Reconstruction about checking the exterior of your home for weaknesses that could leave you more vulnerable to hail damage.
