It seems like it’s been a stormy July and start to August here in Steamboat Springs, and with the daily storms comes high winds and hail.

Hail Damage Colorado Roofing

Hail & Wind are among the largest causes of insurance claims in the United States

And it’s known that wind and hail storms continue to be some of the most common and severe causes of property damage throughout Colorado.

Recently, State Farm said that wind and hail damage cost them and their policyholders almost $4 billion in 2012. They also released a ‘Top 10 List’ of the states that had the most claims.

And guess what? Colorado made the Top 10, with over 16,000 claims from wind and hail damage. By the way, Texas led the list with 47,000 claims.

Now, to be fair…that’s not all roof damage, that includes damage to cars, boats, RVs etc. But if you know there is a damaging storm coming, then you should really try to protect your personal property.

But, the business of Wilson Roofing Division is roofing, and that’s where we want to focus.

Did you know that most insurance companies offer premium discounts when your home or business has a qualifying impact resistant roof?

That’s why you really should consider, when your are building or remodeling, a weather resistant metal roof that has been proven to reduce damage from hail. Which then gives you savings on your insurance.

Good quality and property installed metal roofs are proven to be naturally very strong and highly resistant to hail damage.

Hail will not penetrate a metal roof. In contrast, even a new asphalt shingle roof won’t protect a home from the next hail storm.
