This summer in Colorado Springs is shaping up to be another season with several significant hail storms. It is important to have a Hail Damage Roof Inspection after EVERY major hail storm that hits Colorado Springs!
Colorado Springs homeowners need to take an aggressive approach when checking their residential roof for hail or leak damage to their residential roof.
Despite the consistent hail activity in the Pikes Peak area, some homeowners are unaware of the damage that this frozen precipitation can cause. Hail damage on roofs isn’t always visible. However, a roof that has been impacted by hail can negatively effect the longevity of your roof.

You can’t determine if your roof has been damaged by hail from looking at it from the ground. A leaking roof is NOT the main indicator of roofing hail damage.
Signs of Roof Hail Damage
- Missing area of granules on shingles.
- Gutters, swimming pools, or areas under eaves that are not covered with fill granules. Most shingles have a few pounds of colored granules per square of coverage.
- It does not take too many missing or loose granules to have significant shingle damage.
- Dimples on shingles may also be seen on the back of the shingles as round, half round, or crescent shaped bruises.
- Dents in flashing, ridges, vents stack and lead boots would indicate that the roof has seen hail damage.
In the last 2 months The Springs has experience hail storms with golf ball sized hail and larger. These storms are capable of creating extensive damage to residential and commercial roofs throughout the Colorado Springs.
Whether you are a life-long Colorado Springs, CO resident or a new transplant to The Springs, we all know that the weather is both unpredictable and sometimes disastrous and emergencies are a fact of life.
