Oh, the joys of summer in Minnesota. Beautifully warm, sunny weather one minute, high winds and hail the next. Of all the weather elements that we deal with in Minnesota, hail has to be the sneakiest, not to mention extremely destructive. Worst of all, there is no way to protect your home from hail. A good hail storm can make a homeowner feel downright helpless.
Let’s talk about that hail storm that hit the Twin Cities a few weeks ago. We have fielded over 250 calls from homeowners in need of our help securing their homes. We have been boarding up homes for over two weeks! There was so much hail in some communities that city crews had to dust off the snowplows to clean up the streets. Now, that is a lot of hail!
Were you impacted by the recent hail storm? Does your home have hail damage? Not sure? If you are not 100% sure, it would be in your best interest to have your home inspected by a professional. Hail or high winds can cause damage to your home, such as tears or rips in your siding, holes in your roof, broken windows, torn shingles, and more. Often times, homes are not properly inspected and holes in the roof and/or siding caused by hail will go unnoticed. Until repairs are properly made, water has the opportunity to enter your home (interior walls, attic, basement, etc.), which can eventually lead to mold. Obviously, if windows or doors are damaged in a storm, they need to be boarded for the safety of you and your family, but also to avoid water entering the home.
After a powerful storm of any kind, it is recommended that you have your home fully inspected for storm damage. Give us a call at Kiser Construction at 612-518-8852. We are a full-service construction, remodeling, and fire and water restoration company in the Twin Cities.
