Less than two weeks ago, St. Paul, Minnesota had a storm that dropped baseball and walnut-size hail. RestoreMasters crews were there then and they are in St. Paul again, after larger than teacup-size hail pelted roofs, homes, and buildings. Hail this size drops at nearly 40 mph, causing significant damage.

Along with the hail, was heavy rain. Large, fast-falling hail breaks roofing tiles, shingles, and siding, and heavy rain with wind pushes water under the damaged protection and seeps into walls and ceilings causing mold and mildew damage, not good for the health of a building, nor for the health of the people inside.

RestoreMasters is skilled at remedying hail and rain damage in emergency situations, providing shrink wrap or tarps to reduce intake of water, hence reducing water damage inside.

A local hail storm map indicates that hail fell on eastern St. Paul, as well as the eastern suburbs as marked by dark orange patches. Hail between 1.25” and 1.75” fell in areas surrounding the larger hail and hail up to 1” fell, out to Highway 40.

NOAA’s hail and wind storm map indicates various sized hail, with heavy rain in some areas, which causes great damage to buildings and homes.

  • Paul: Quarter, ping pong ball and golf ball-size hail.
  • Emmons: Hailstones between golf ball and two-inch size.
  • Twin Lakes: Heavy rain and quarter sized hail, and up to 3” size hail fell south of Alberta Lea, with much small hail.
  • Glenville: Two-inch hail.
  • Minneapolis: Quarter-size hail.
  • Falcon Heights: Half-dollar-size hail.

RestoreMasters has expertise in dealing with immediate emergency remediation after heavy rain and hail storms, which can cause various forms of damage, some very obvious and some not easily seen by inexperienced eyes.

Strong winds can rip open some roofing systems and cause severe roof wind damage. Winds as low as 50 mph can cause some older roofs to be damaged. 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.

Following severe weather like this, it's important to get a thorough roof inspection & property damage assessment to determine whether or not you have roof damage from hail or wind. If roof leaks do occur, an experienced disaster roofing contractor can stop leaks with tarping or shrink wrapping, where affected areas (or the entire roof) are covered with a durable shrink-wrapped plastic membrane till permanent repairs can take place. That way you can prevent mold growth from water intrusion.
If your property was anywhere within the storm damage map, it would be best to get your roof inspected, even if you think your roof was not damaged. Symptoms of storm damage problems do not always show up immediately. And insurance company deadlines could hinder your ability to file a claim later.
