Colorado receives high levels of hail damage every year. The experts at Stone Creek Roofing can walk you through the repair process.
Hail tends to be more severe in Colorado due to the altitude, with pieces having less time to disintegrate from the atmosphere to the ground. That’s why it’s important to understand hail damage and the process of inspection, insurance claims, and repair work.
Hail damage repair shouldn’t have to be confusing. At Stone Creek Roofing, we want to make sure every Coloradoan has the resources to address severe damage effectively. From start to finish, this is how we recommend handling the repair process.
It’s important to schedule an inspection as as soon as possible after a hailstorm. When it comes to insurance claims, the clock is ticking. The longer you wait to make a claim, the less likely it is you’ll be able to directly attribute the damage to a specific hailstorm. Note the exact time and date of the storm and take lots of pictures once it’s safe to do so.
Start with a quick visual inspection of your roof from the ground before calling a professional roofer. First, look for any pieces of roofing that have fallen, including shingles or tiles. The clearest evidence of hail damage is broken or fallen roofing material. Don’t forget to check around other parts of your home’s exterior, such as:
All of these areas can prove your roof has taken damage you can’t see from the ground. That being said, do not attempt a full roof inspection on your own. Climbing onto your roof is dangerous enough—don’t raise your chances of injury when you don’t know what damage is waiting on top. Stone Creek Roofing offers free roof inspections so you don’t have to put yourself or your roof at further risk.

Before the inspection begins, write down all of your expectations for the process. This simplifies communication between you and the roofer and helps determine what problems need to be addressed. After clarifying your goals, budget, and concerns with your roofer, it’s time to get down to the inspection. This looks a little different based on what kind of building you own:
Inspecting your home’s roof doesn’t just protect your investment—it protects your family. A quality roofer starts by prioritizing your questions, needs, and safety. Then, technicians will assess for any hail damage and provide recommendations and cost estimates to restore your roofing.
A commercial roofing system is too large of an investment to push aside or DIY, so it’s crucial to have trained professionals handle any hail damage you encounter. A roofer should provide straightforward recommendations to repair damage. At Stone Creek Roofing, many of our inspectors are also certified adjusters experienced with insurance claims and payouts for hail damages.
The repair process depends on the severity and location of the hail damage. Hailstorms are typical in Colorado, so consider investing in hail-resistant roofing material to prevent extreme damage.
