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

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. 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 problems do not produce symptoms right away. And deadlines from insurance companies could hinder you from filing a claim later.
