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.

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

Older roofs are susceptible to severe wind damage, by winds as low as 50 mph.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Many storm damage symptoms are not always evident immediately.

And insurance company deadlines could hinder your ability to file a claim later.
