Denver's spring and summer storms can be severe. Many of these storms come with damaging hail and high winds. If your home was recently hit by one of these large storms you should carefully inspect your home for damage and determine whether you need to hire a storm and hail damage repair contractor.
Large hailstones can damage your siding, break windows, and cause leaks in your roof. Sometimes these leaks are small and may go unnoticed for some time. Small roof leaks can lead to an extensive amount of water damage and even mold growth if left untreated.
Your homeowners insurance covers damage to your home from wind and hail. This includes any emergency water damage restoration services needed for flooding that was caused by wind-driven rainwater that entered your home as a result of storm or hail damage.

Denver's storms cause a lot of damage
Denver has been getting hit hard by hail storms this spring and summer - literally! These storms have been leaving a trail of damage in their wake. Unfortunately, it seems like these types of storms are becoming a regular occurrence across Colorado and the Front Range.
In fact, Colorado was listed as the worst state for hail damage in 2018. Last year, more than 24,000 people filed insurance claims for over $380 million in hail damage to their homes in Colorado alone. Baseball-sized hail can reach speeds of up to 120mph before hitting the ground.
And it's not just the hail that you need to be worried about. The high winds and topical storm-like rains from these Denver storms can do damage on their own as well.
The most common types of damage that we see from these large thunderstorms include:
How to spot hail damage to your home
Hail damage can be easy to spot in the most severe cases (e.g. broken windows or siding). However, hail damage to your roof is not always as easily visible as a hail dent in your car. Small leaks in your roof can be hard to spot but can end up causing an extensive amount of water and mold damage over time if left untreated.
