Summer in Minnesota can bring blue skies, inviting lakes and sometimes, intense storms. These storms can leave their mark on your home. It’s smart to know ahead of time what storm damage may include, so you can be on the lookout. Here’s what can happen in a storm – and how to look for the right contractor if you do need storm damage repair.
Hail is one of the elements that could damage your home during a storm. Hail may impact the exterior of your home. It may also break windows or dent your home’s siding. Your roof could be impacted. Roofing shingles may lose granules, get holes or fall off … and roof damage could cause leaks.
A hail storm may cause issues that are not visible right away. Sometimes the layer under shingles has been harmed. So if hail has paid you a visit, it’s a good idea to have a professional take a look at your home. Seasoned roofing experts may notice damage that’s behind the scenes.
Strong winds can do everything from join forces with a thunderstorm to move down or in a straight line. Wind can affect your roof. Wind may even remove siding or carry other objects. It can dislocate trees and branches.
Hopefully your area will have a peaceful summer. But if it turns out you need storm damage repair, look for a qualified local contractor. Ask how long they’ve worked in the area. Make sure they’re not a “storm chaser” who drove in from another location. Ask to see their contractor’s license, and find out if they’re insured.
