Has a hail storm recently come through your neighborhood? The Minneapolis weather can range from extreme climate fluctuations of hot and cold to harsh conditions such as heavy snow, wind, and hail. After a hail storm has passed, you should inspect your home and roofing for any signs of roof storm damage.
Below, we’ll talk about:
- Information about hail
- 3 signs of hail damage on your Minneapolis roof
- The services that Prominent Construction Roofing provides
Hail & Damage
Extreme weather can often result in hail, which is a form of ice pellet that can range in size. When hail is around or larger than 1” in diameter, it can cause high levels of damage to your property, home, roof, and belongings. This damage can range from compromised structural integrity of your home to dented roofing and gutters, cracked siding, shattered windows, and ripped screen doors.
3 Signs of Hail Damage on Your Minneapolis Roof
Dents & Craters
Large pieces of hail can leave behind huge dents and craters in your roof, especially on asphalt and metal roofing. These craters and dents can appear as irregular or circular depressions that you can find once a hail storm has passed. This type of hail damage can be found on the surface of your roof, chimney, vents, and even skylights.
Bruised & Cracked Shingles
Another sign of hail damage is bruised, dented, or cracked shingles. Over time, dented shingles can compromise the integrity of your roofing and should be checked out by a roofing professional. Cracked shingles, in comparison, are a more severe type of damage from hail. Cracked shingles can lead to issues with leaking, mold, and rust.
Due to this, it’s important that these cracked shingles are replaced as soon as possible to prevent more costly storm damage issues in the future.
Leaking & Water Pooling
If your roof is leaking after a storm, this needs to be addressed in a timely manner. A leaking roof is one of the most noticeable signs of damage after a hail storm and comes in the form of water pooling or water stains on your ceiling and walls. In order to prevent any further damage, you should call a roofing professional to assess your roofing and stop your roof from leaking.
