Storm Guard of North Metro Denver
Storm Guard of North Metro Denver is locally owned and operated by fourth generation Colorado natives, Janice Lopez and Russ Barber. As a trusted name in the insurance restoration industry, Storm Guard specializes in roofing, gutters, siding, paint, windows, and emergency tarping services.
According to the Rocky Mountain Insurance Information Association, Colorado’s Front Range is located in the heart of “Hail Alley” and receives the highest frequency of large hail in North America.
