Hail damage is a common occurrence across Minnesota due to our extreme weather. In some instances hailstorms can bring hail the size of baseballs which can cause damage to roofs, cars, and all sorts of vulnerable items. When it comes to dealing with hail damage you’ll need to act fast and act smart. Hail damage is often covered by your insurance company but you need to provide them with the right evidence to get the compensation you deserve.

Another concern, with regard to hail damage repair, is the appearance of out-of-town storm chasers immediately after the storm. These individuals will blanket an area hit by hail and look for unsuspecting homeowners in need of roof repair. They might pass out leaflets or even show up unannounced to offer a free inspection. The homeowner who falls for this scam is left with a poorly constructed roof, and the fraudulent company that was once so ready to help has vanished.

Hail Damage Roofers – Minneapolis & St Paul

  • Hail can range in size and severity and so can the damage caused by hail. Unless the marks are 100% visible, there is no ‘cut and dry’ hail damage insurance claim.
  • Hail damage can cause problems over time rather than right away, which means that your shingles may look okay now but the damage will not be experienced until later.
  • Minnesota hail damage is a common issue and thus the insurance companies have several ways to avoid covering a claim. In order to make a claim, you need to provide evidence, documentation and an inspection from hail damage roofers who know what they are doing.
  • Hail damage can leave your shingles cracked which, over time, can lead to leaking problems as well as mold and mildew issues.

Detecting Damage

Look for the following indications that your roof and structures have been damaged by hail. If you notice any of the following, take a picture of the damage (no matter how trivial it may seem) and contact a hail damage specialist for further instruction:

Collateral damage including car dents, broken windows, broken skylights and tree damage. This damage around your home can indicate that your roof also took a beating.

Tears or indents in the shingles – check the hips, ridges and sides of your shingles to see if hail has damaged them. A tear may seem like nothing now but it can result in mold and mildew problems as well as leaking issues down the road.

Excessive granule loss – your shingles are made up of tiny granules that protect your roof. Check the gutters, the ground and other areas for excessive granules. A loss of these granules means a loss in the lifespan of your shingles.
