Hail Season is Upon Us

This time of year afternoon storms come over the mountains and we can see hail, rain, and an occasional tornado.   We don't usually see tornadoes in the City, but we have a few times.  The tornadoes usually stay out East and develop over open land.

 

 

When we see hail damage the roofers come out of the woodwork, and not all of these companies are legitimate.   Over the years we hear, that they take a large amount of the total bill, get started, and then take off, without completing the work.    Don't be SCAMMED, check out the roofing company before giving a deposit!

 

Roofing companies should have a business listed in Denver, most often can find them on BBB, and if you need any assistance, give me a call.   I know many good roofing companies that do a great job and have a history of being a reputable company.

That is some seriously big hail in your featured photo.  I do not think I have ever been in a storm with hail so big. 

It is good to know that you can recommend some reputable roofers.  It is a shame we have to be so careful and that there are some that would take advantage of people who are already suffering a big loss.

We fortunately do not get much hail here in East TN.  I am not a huge fan for sure.  Great blog.  Thanks for sharing!

Hi Joan... we had a big hail storm here about 8 years ago... hail damage got me a new roof from my insurance company... but nothing to worry about since.

Great advice. Very little hail damage here in the high desert, but lots of potential wind damage these last couple of years.

Roy, it is here today too, thankfully.  Last year we made it through the spring without a damaging hail storm.

Michael Jacobs you don't get hail?    About mid-May to mid-June we get hail, but got lucky last year, no damaging hail storms.

Occasionally.  Definitely not a "season".

Raymond Henson, eXp Realty those are the size that cause all the problems, break windshields, dents cars and destroys roofs.

You would need a helmet and body armor to go outside!

Nina Hollander, Broker that is good to hear, and hope you see nothing this year too.   As soon as I moved into my new place, the HOA said the roof was toast, and had to replace it.   Special assessment!

Leanne Smith we have had LOTS of wind this year too, hope you haven't seen damage from them.

Actually we put on a new roof two years ago and it was done very well. Shingles are guaranteed for 30 years. So far no hint of roof damage from these strong winds.

Norma, you are lucky, it is damaging if the hail stones get too large.

You are really facing the Gambit when it comes to weather. At least the weather people are keeping busy 😎

Hi Joan- I have never seen hail that big!!!  And good information for consumers to be alert to roofers who aren't who they say they are.

Joan, To say I've had a few run-ins with hail storms would be an understatement.

I've had my roof replaced twice because of hail. Now I have a 50 year roof that is supposed to withstand hail better. About 27 years ago we had a terrible hail storm in FL. I was out meeting someone and my car was battered by the hail and had to be repaired. When I got back to my MIL's house her screen porch with an aluminum roof caved in from the weight of all the accumulated hail on it. I was delivering a check a few days ago and it started hailing while I was out. I was a bit concerned about my car but it seems to be fine.

Carla Freund you HAVE had some experience with hail.   I think last year was the first year we didn't have some disastrous storms.
