The area along I-25 north and south of the Denver Metro area gets more hail than many places in the United States. In a year, about 10 to 20 storms will produce enough hail that requires a plow to clear off the roads. Because of the frequent hail storms we experience here in Denver and the surrounding areas, Storm Exterior understands the importance of protecting your home and property from hail damage. Here are some simple tips you can follow to protect your home and weather through the storm.

Clear Outdoor Furniture and Decorations

When bad weather hits, flowerpots, lawn decorations, and outdoor furniture could get damaged or actually cause damage to the exterior of your home. Since hail is always a possibility during thunderstorms, it’s better to store loose furniture and decorations to reduce property damage. If you don’t have enough storage space for outdoor furniture, anchor large objects with chains or a cable to prevent strong winds from picking up the furniture.

Maintain and Clear Out Drain Pipes and Gutters

Water should move with ease through the pipes, gutters, and downspouts equipped on your home, which is especially important if hail builds up in these areas during a storm. On the other hand, clogged gutters and drain pipes can cause major issues when a storm hits. Before hail season comes around, remove leaves and other debris from these fixtures to allow water flow in gutters and drainpipes to prevent water damage and flooding.

Keep Well-Maintained Lawns

Hail damage can increase when your lawn is not well-maintained. Make it a habit to prune trees and get rid of dead, weak branches, loose tree branches, and shrubs that are too close to glass windows and doors. When high winds strike, these branches could damage the glass and other surfaces of your home. Ideally, your landscaping should provide a natural windbreak to slow winds down before hitting your home.

Invest in Hail Resistant Roofing

Since it’s impossible to prevent hail storms, the next best thing is to install quality roofing. Choose hail-resistant materials that could stand up well against a hail storm to reduce expenses to repair damage caused by hail. Make it a habit to maintain and inspect your roof regularly and address potential problems as soon as possible, and connect with a reputable roofing expert like us to see if your roof is ready for an upgrade.



Hail storms cause billions of dollars in property damage each year, and while getting property insurance is a must, it’s also important to take the proper precautions before a storm strikes. Preparing your roof and your yard can help save you money in the long run.
