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.

Some roofing systems can be severely harmed by damage from heavy winds, tornadoes, or hail. 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.

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.
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. Symptoms of storm damage problems do not always show up immediately. And insurance company deadlines could hinder your ability to file a claim later.
