In Colorado, residential and commercial buildings experience extreme weather conditions–from snow and rain—to lighting, wind, and hail. While any of these elements can damage your roof, hailstorms are typically the most destructive causing mild to serious roof damage. In the aftermath of a hailstorm, knowing what to do to protect your most valuable asset can be complicated. Based in Longmont, Colorado, Roof Check Inc. specializes in addressing Colorado hailstorm damage. In fact, we provide free estimates, reliable repairs, and replacements for residential and commercial roofing systems throughout the Front Range and beyond.
Anyone who has lived in the state knows that Colorado’s climate can be extreme and erratic. One moment it will be sunny and dry, the next stormy with a potential for rain or hail. In fact, late summer and early fall can bring intense and sudden hailstorms that can cause a lot of damage to your roof. More importantly, Colorado’s extreme weather conditions will ultimately determine how long a roof lasts. So, whether you want to protect your roof from future hail damage or get an assessment for repairs or replacements after a hailstorm—it is a good idea to be informed about your options.
If you’re looking into the best roofing materials for Colorado weather, we suggest getting an expert consultation from our professional roofing team. With over 35 years of experience, they will be able to assess the current state of your roof and choose a roofing material that will protect your home or business as much as possible from hail damage. When researching the best roofing materials for hailstorms, it is important to note that the quality of the installation process is just as important as the materials used. The following are some of our suggestions for suitable roofing materials to withstand hailstorms in Colorado.
Concrete Tile Roofing
One of the best roofing materials for Colorado hailstorms is concrete tiling. Concrete tiles can last 100 years and endure a variety of extreme weather conditions, including hailstorms. Concrete tiles are more expensive than a typical shingle roof, but they are extremely effective in reflecting the sun, dissipating heat, and protecting against severe hail damage. If you are considering concrete tiles, we always advise that the building is inspected to ensure it can withstand the weight of the tiles since they are heavier than most. At Roof Check Inc., we are proud to be leaders in the Tile Roofing industry and a long-standing member of the Tile Roofing Institution.
While metal is slightly more expensive than other traditional roofing materials, metal roofs typically lasts on average 40-70 years and are extremely durable in extreme weather conditions—including hailstorms. But, while metal roofing will protect your building from hail damage in Colorado, it can dimple permanently when hit by hail. Depending on whether you’re using metal for a residential or commercial building, you might want to take this fact into consideration. If you’re still not sure which route to take, contact our helpful team to schedule a free consultation.
Hard Slate Roofing
If the denting aspect of metal roofing is a concern for you, hard slate roofing might be a good alternative. Slate is known as the “forever roof,” and while certain shingles may need to be replaced due to hail damage, it won’t always necessitate a full roof replacement. It is important to note that there are two different kinds of slate, hard and soft. Hard slate roofing can last between 75-200 years with proper prepping and installation. Many people choose slate because it is a beautiful look and can withstand the extreme fluctuations of Colorado’s weather.
Longmont Hail Damage Assessment
If you’re home or business in the Longmont, Boulder, or Denver area has just experienced a hailstorm and you’re concerned about hail damage, contact our Longmont roofing company.

Whether you want to do your own research or contact our team at Roof Check Inc., we suggest you make a plan as soon as possible after a hailstorm. While it might not be apparent from the outside or even inside the building, hail damage can cause long-term issues like flooding, leaking, and even toxic mold. Water damage can also lead to foundation cracks, leaking windows, faulty pipes, etc. Many people try to put off roof repairs and replacements due to the large cost up-front, however, it could be a much more expensive process in the end if damage isn’t mitigated. If needed, we can provide a full residential or commercial roof restoration.
