The hailstorm that hit the Twin Cities on June 11 caused many families damage to their home. Some of the damage from wind and hail was obvious. But sometimes it’s not as easy to tell if your home needs repairs. There are some signs you may be able to see from your yard – and other signs it may take a professional to find.
Here are some signs you can look for, to help you see if your home has hailstorm damage:
- Scarred siding
- Chipped window frames
- Dings on gutters
These are signs that may be easily visible. But for a thorough inspection, a skilled professional should inspect your home – including taking a look at your roof. He or she needs to look for damage such as missing granules on shingles. This is not a task for everyone. It takes training and special safety precautions. But it’s important. What seems like a small imperfection in your shingles could result in a leak in the future.
When you’re choosing someone to conduct a storm damage inspection on your home, make sure to choose a local, well-established company. “Storm chasers” from other areas may offer to provide storm damage repair, but they may not be easy to find later if you have questions. Choose a company with a long track record in your area, so you can feel secure that they will be there to stand behind their work.
