Minnesota is certainly not a stranger to hail storms. In fact, many homeowners in the state have experienced hail damage at one time or another. Even hail storms that have small to moderately sized hail can cause a great deal of roof damage that is not always visible. If the damage is allowed to remain, the life expectancy of the roof can be severely compromised. That is why the hail damage experts at Building Renewal Inc. are there to secure your roof right after the storm so that you do not have to contend with leaks and other issues. We can also help you as you work with your insurance company to receive the compensation that is needed to make the necessary repairs.
Identifying Hail Damage
Hail damage is not always evident, which is why it is best to call an experienced Minnesota hail damage repair company right after the storm. However, you may be able to see missing or loose shingles, pock marks, or cracks on the roof. Gutters, metal air vents, and siding can also be dented. If you see dents in gutters, vents, or siding, then you can count on there being damage to your roof.
When a hail damage professional evaluates the home for damage, every inch of the interior is inspected so that every dent can be accounted for. This is important information to have when you file your insurance claim. When on the roof, it may be found that the shingle matting is cracked or that the damage is near the edge of a shingle. Even if a shingle is not broken, the impact could have cracked the wood under it. Any cracks, even if they are under shingles, can allow water in. This water will leak into the attic to then cause water marks on the ceilings of the living quarters. This can also lead to mold and mildew issues that may cause respiratory issues among the occupants.
The Insurance Company
The insurance company will send an insurance adjuster to your home. It is important that a qualified Minnesota hail damage repair company assesses the damage and provides you with an estimate. This information can be used because the adjuster is not always able to assess the damage accurately. They are trained to look for signs of damage, but they may miss something. In addition, areas that have sustained a lot of damage tend to have adjusters that are from out-of-state and they are not familiar with certain aspects of Minnesota homes, causing the insurance payment amount to come up short. We’ll work with you and the adjuster so that you can ensure your damages are completely paid for.
