Home owners need to look for curling, discolored or missing shingles; damaged, discolored or rotting wood on the fascia or under the eaves. When buying a home it is always a good idea to ask for an Inspection and Roof certification.

Colorado routinely gets strong winds in the spring and fall, but this year we have seen some exceptionally strong gusts. We have been competing with hurricane force winds. We have seen semi-trailers blown over while traveling on I-25, barns and trees blown down, personal items picked up and carried away never to be seen again. There were wind gusts of over 120 mph in some areas. Gusts of 80 mph have been a common throughout many front range cities such as Denver, Colorado Springs, Pueblo and Canon City.
