Unfortunately, hail damage is something that happens far too often in Minnesota. There are some things you can prepare for, but a Minnesota hail storm is simply not one of them. After a severe hail storm your home, and most notably your roof can sustain significant damage that should be addressed immediately. The problem with some hail damage repair is that the damage itself can be difficult to spot with the naked eye. In fact, it often takes a trained eye like the experienced roofers at Refuge Roofing to spot hail damage after a severe storm.
What Does Hail Damage Look Like?
There are a number of signs that could point to a hail damaged roof. Be on the lookout for the following signs that you may have experienced MN hail damage based on the numerous severe storms we’ve recently had in our area.
• Curled shingles caused by both the hail itself as well as wind direction
• Indented shingles
• Shingle tears caused by hail impact
• Cracked or scratched shingles
• Granules on the ground or in your gutters, caused by severe storms
• Gutter damage
• Leaking in your attic or ceiling
• Siding damage
• Broken and/or damaged windows or skylights
• Fallen trees or power lines
Hail Damage Can Be Hard to Spot
While your roof may not have shingles missing, or large indentations after a storm, this doesn’t necessarily mean that you have not sustained any hail damage. You may have small cracks or indentations which can be difficult to see, but can lead to damage over time. Loss of shingle granules can lead to UV damage, while shingle tears can lead to moisture problems including mold and mildew. If you notice even the smallest amount of hail damage it’s best to contact a reputable Minnesota roofing contractor to come provide a free hail damage repair assessment.
