The Best Hail Resistant Roofing Options in Colorado

Living in Colorado means experiencing a wide range of weather conditions. This happens not just from season to season but sometimes from hour to hour. In the summer, the front range is susceptible to a variety of extreme weather patterns, including frequent hailstorms. Hail is the leading cause of damage to roofs in our state. Most hailstorms lead to costly repairs or even full roof replacements for homeowners. Because of this, it is a very good idea to invest in a hail resistant roof to safeguard your property from the unpredictable temperament of Colorado’s weather and to save money on your insurance. In this article, we will explore four of the best hail resistant roofing options available.

1. Class 4 Asphalt Shingles

Class 4 asphalt shingles are known for their durability and ability to withstand some of the more severe hailstorms. These shingles undergo testing and meet industry standards for impact resistance. They are designed with multiple layers and reinforced with materials such as fiberglass or modified asphalt, making them more resistant to hail damage.

Class 4 asphalt shingles are thicker and more durable than standard shingles, which enhances their ability to withstand hail impact. They are often rated to resist hailstones up to 2 inches in diameter, offering excellent protection for homes in hail-prone areas like Colorado.

Additionally, Class 4 asphalt shingles are available in a wide range of styles and colors. Excel Roofing is a Platinum Preferred Contractor with Owens Corning, so we recommend Owens Corning TruDefinition Duration Storm or Flex. Both shingles are great cost-effective options to protect your home. In Colorado, the average cost to replace your roof with a Class 4 asphalt shingle roof is around $17,000.

2. Synthetic Shingles

Another popular option for hail resistant roofing in Colorado are synthetic shingles. Made from materials like PVC or synthetic polymers.

Synthetic shingles are highly durable and impact resistant. They offer excellent protection against UV rays, moisture, and temperature fluctuations, making them a practical choice for Colorado’s climate.

These shingles are available in a range of designs, including ones that mimic the appearance of traditional materials like wood or slate. With their lightweight nature, plastic shingles are easy to install and require minimal maintenance over their lifespan. Since these are the most hail proof shingles for homeowners, they are costly. These shingles are 2.25X – 4X more expensive than Class 4 asphalt shingles, priced around $38,000 – $68,000.

3. Stone-Coated Steel

Stone-Coated steel roofing is a premium option for homeowners seeking superior hail resistance. These roofs consist of steel panels coated with a layer of granules. This type of roof provides exceptional wind resistance and reliable durability and protection against hail damage.

The stone coating enhances the roof’s strength and impact resistance, allowing it to withstand even severe hailstorms. The interlocking panels create a watertight barrier, protecting your home from leaks and further damage. Additionally, stone-coated steel roofs have a long lifespan and require minimal maintenance.

Furthermore, stone-coated steel roofs offer excellent fire resistance, energy efficiency, and resistance to other weather elements like wind and snow. They are available in various colors and styles, enabling homeowners to achieve a distinctive and visually appealing look for their homes. Because these are hail resistant, fire resistant, and energy efficient, they are 3.5X – 4X the cost of a Class 4 asphalt shingle, priced around $59,500 – $68,000.

4. Class 4 Tile

Tile roofs, including options like concrete or clay tiles, are known for their exceptional durability and hail resistance. These roofs can withstand hailstones of varying sizes without sustaining significant damage. Tile roofs are long-lasting and require minimal maintenance over their lifespan.

Tile roofs also offer excellent insulation properties, helping to regulate indoor temperatures and reduce energy consumption. They are available in various colors, styles, and shapes, allowing homeowners to achieve a unique and visually appealing look for their homes. Because the tiles are low maintenance and long-lasting, they are 3X the cost of Class 4 asphalt shingles, priced around $51,000 on average.

Class 4 Tile

Investing in a hail resistant roof is a wise decision and provides peace of mind during severe weather events. When choosing a hail resistant roof, consider one of the materials mentioned.

Material prices were just raised on August 1st, 2023, and will continue to go up. If you need a new roof, consult with an Excel Roofing Project Manager to assess your specific needs and help you select the best option for your home.
