As a Colorado resident, you know better than most that after a storm hits roofing companies descend on the area faster than you can get to the front door. They’ll offer to waive your deductible, give you a free upgrade to new materials, and get you so stressed about the state of potential damage to your property that you feel compelled to make a decision right then and there. The problem with the common sales approach is that it doesn’t give home owners the chance to research the experience of the roof expert standing at their door. Whether you’re in a position that you need to make a decision on the spot or you have time to research companies before hand, we want to offer some advice that will help you glean information about the experience of the roof expert you’re considering.
In May of 2017, Denver experienced one of the worst hailstorms we’ve ever seen.

It was one of the costliest hailstorms to be recorded in Colorado, totaling an estimated $1.4 billion in damages.
