One of the many reasons it’s important to respond with haste after storm damage is demand. With so many area property owners in need of roofing repairs and replacements in the wake of summer storms, you may be surprised to learn just how backlogged Denver CO roofers are this time of year.

These uncontrollable variables can slow production schedules for weeks at a time, yet another reason it’s important to request a roofing inspection the moment you suspect your home many have sustained damage.

Denver CO Storm Damage: What You Need to Know
Hail size is not always indicative of the damage is can leave behind. It’s actually more dependent upon the density of the hail. In some cases, dense dime-sized hail can do more damage than less dense quarter-sized hailed. Don’t let size fool you, even smaller pieces of hail can pack a big punch.
Loose granules on the ground around your home can be a sign of much more serious problems. Asphalt roofs begin to shed granules as they age and/or when damaged by storm activity. If you notice granules around your property shortly after a storm, this may be indicative of roof storm damage.
Lifting shingles can be caused by extreme storm conditions. While you might not notice immediately when your shingles begin to lift, it can cause major problems when Colorado’s winter weather prevails. Loose shingles can allow heat to escape through your roof, creating the perfect environment for ice dams to build. These warm spots cause snow to melt and refreeze at the low edges of your roof. Ice dam build up causes water to seep under shingles and cause extensive damage. What might appear to be a small amount of damage today can compound during the winter months leaving the structural integrity of your roof in jeopardy.
