May 29, 2022

​Worthington, Minnesota residents spent Memorial Day weekend watching storms slam through their area. Hail the size of golf balls and tennis balls hit Worthington. When hail falls at this size it’s traveling at up to 72 mph. Clearly, this can do great damage to commercial buildings and homes. Homeowners trying to assess damage can look for signs indicating if there is damage to their roofs, without actually going up on the roof. Climbing a ladder and walking on a slanted surface can be dangerous for some people, better left to experts who have the know-how and proper equipment to do so.

Signs of roof damage are:

  1. Dents in gutters, gutter screens of downspouts.
  2. Damage on siding and windowsills or window casings.
  3. Damage to air conditioners and other outdoor items.
  4. Damage to decks and painted wood surfaces.

If a property owner sees damage as listed above, then they can be assured there is damage to the roof. They will want to call in a service to help assess the damage and apply shrink wrap or tarp to the roof in order to reduce any further water damage. After everything settles, and property owners' insurance provides help, they can have more permanent repairs done.

According to the local hail map, Worthington was struck with hail up to 2 ½” in diameter (dark orange), surrounding this portion of the storm, the hail was up to 1 ¾” (orange) and on the outskirts of the storm, stones dropped at up to 1 ¼” (yellow).

NOAA’s National Weather Services map and report indicate varied size hail in Minnesota, as well as the neighboring state of South Dakota. This storm is related to the storm that plagued various locations in South Dakota on the same day.

  • Worthington, MN: pea-sized hail, quarter to golf-ball sized.
  • Brandon, SD: damage to the roof of local Speedway.
  • Freeman, SD: nickel-sized hail with some ping pong-ball-sized hail.
  • Tyndall, SD: nickel-sized hail, with some up to quarter-sized hail.

RestoreMasters encourages property owners to seek assistance at the earliest possible time to ensure damage is cared for immediately. Storms continue to plague the area and water damage will increase in unprotected buildings, eventually growing mold and mildew, and warmer weather will aid in rapid growth.

Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage.

Some older roofs can be damaged by winds as low as 50 miles per hour.

The intensity of roof damage is determined by various factors: the velocity and impact of flying debris, the quality of the original installation, the building height and location in relation to other buildings, the angle and shape of the roof, and the material used on the roof.

It's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment following severe weather like this so that you can determine whether you have roof damage from hail or high winds.

Circumstances do not always allow for immediate repair of roof leaks. In the meantime, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can cover the roof or affected area with a tarp or with a durable plastic shrink wrap material, until such a time when more permanent repairs can be made. We need to stop more moisture damage, so we can prevent mold growth.

Even if you don't think your roof was damaged, you will want to get your roof inspected if your property falls anywhere within the hail damage map.

Many storm damage symptoms are not always evident immediately.

And insurance companies sometimes enforce deadlines for claims, so you need to get your claim filed quickly.
