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.

Severe storms, bringing hail, strong winds, or tornadoes can cause severe roof damage, by ripping off roofing systems. Older roofs are susceptible to severe wind damage, by winds as low as 50 mph. The severity of roof damage depends on several factors including: type and age of roofing materials, presence of flying debris, roof shape and angle, building height and proximity to adjacent structures and the quality of original roof installation.

Getting a roof inspection & property damage assessment after severe weather like this is important for determining whether you need to address roof damage from hail or high winds. If roof leaks are a problem, they need to be addressed immediately. Experienced roofing contractors can either cover the affected area (or the entire roof) with a tarp or with a durable shrink wrap plastic membrane until long-term repairs can be made. Preventing water intrusion will help stop mold from growing.
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.
