Two storms roared through Minnesota, on Monday, May 9, 2022. Fallen trees, hailstones the size of baseballs, heavy wind and rain, all converged to bring chaos to owners of homes and commercial buildings throughout the St. Paul area. One couple, Dan and Susan Brown living on River Street in Chisago County was devastated to have their Italianate home, which is on the National Register of Historic Places, damaged beyond belief. Twenty-six trees were thrown aside on the property, but several fell against the house and nearly removed the back porch, windows are broken and the floor inside is slanted. In Isanti County, a house was struck by lightning and another had a tree land on it. This storm extended beyond the St. Paul area to the western side of Minnesota and further. RestoreMasters’ team is in St. Paul, MN, and surrounding areas to help with emergency remediation, assessment, restoration, and repairs.

A local area hail map indicates almost baseball size hail (orange) falling in the southeast corner of St. Paul, while areas surrounding received hail up to the size of walnuts and beyond that, hail up to one inch (yellow).

Storms can create great damage to roofs and sidings, even small hailstones propelled in high wind can compromise roofing shingles. RestoreMasters highly advises getting a professional assessment of hail damage, after a severe storm such as this one in Minnesota. While building owners may not see big signs of damage, such as leaks in ceilings, there still may be damage, that would allow water to ooze into wood and between walls, which causes mold and mildew damage. Professionals not only can see things that the untrained eye cannot see, but they also know the best way to report insurance companies to ensure that the property owner receives the best coverage for repairs and restoration.

Tornadoes, hail, and even strong winds can cause severe wind damage to roofing systems.

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

Several factors will determine the severity of roof damage: the height of the building and proximity to nearby structures, the quality of work by the original installers, the shape and angle of the roof, the age and type of roofing materials, and the impact from debris.

After a severe storm of hail or high winds, it is important to get your roof inspected, and have a property damage assessment report so that you can learn whether you have damage to your roofing system.

In situations where you've got a leaking roof, experienced disaster roofing contractors can stop the leaks temporarily, by laying tarp or by using a durable shrink-wrap plastic membrane in the affected areas, or even over the entire roof. This will keep your building protected until permanent repairs can take place. This will help prevent mold infestation from water leaks.

Get your roof inspected, even if you think there is no problem, especially if your property falls anywhere within the area of the hail and wind damage map.

Some storm damage symptoms take time to appear.

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