Those who live in the Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area, and elsewhere in Minnesota, are no strangers to the harsh weather this region experiences—especially during the winter months.

We know that dealing with storm damage can be one of the most stressful aspects of owning a home, so we’ll do all we can to make the entire process as straightforward and pain-free as possible while helping you get your home back into tip-top shape.
The Many Faces of Storm Damage
The Twin Cities area sees a wide range of extreme weather conditions throughout the year, including sleet, snow, hail, and tornadoes, which can cause significant storm damage. Our team has extensive experience dealing with various types of damage, including:
Signs of hail damage are most commonly found on the roof. On asphalt shingle roofs, this damage usually comes in the form of cracked or dented shingles or black spots on the shingles in areas where the asphalt granules have been knocked off. On metal roofs, the impact from hailstones often causes dents and dimples. Hail can also damage your home siding, usually causing cracks and dents, but in some cases, it can even completely pierce the siding.
Like hail damage, wind damage often affects the roof. If winds are strong enough, they can cause shingles to pull away from the underlayment, resulting in what is commonly called “curled” or “lifted” shingles. This separation creates a point of entry for water which must be sealed up right away to prevent further damage to your roofing system. Heavy winds can also cause damage to siding or in some cases rip siding panels entirely off of the home.
When ice dams form along the edge of your roofline, they can cause gutters to break off, shingles to come loose, and melted ice and snow to back up on your roof. And while having a pool of standing water on your roof is bad enough, when this water finds its way inside your home, that’s when the real problems occur. So it’s important to have ice dams removed as soon as possible to prevent damage to your roof, soffit and fascia, gutters, and siding.
Getting Your Storm Damages Covered
Once you discover storm damage, it’s important to act swiftly. We employ a team of insurance restoration specialists who can perform a thorough inspection of your home’s exterior to determine the extent of the damage, properly document it with photographs, and let you know if the damage warrants an insurance claim. If we determine that a claim is warranted, we can assist you throughout the insurance restoration process. After the claim has been filed, one of our storm damage specialists can meet with your insurance adjuster on-site to ensure that none of the damage is missed during the inspection. Once the paperwork from the insurance company is complete, we’ll work with you to make any necessary repairs or replacements to restore your home to pre-storm condition.
