Savage homeowners need to be proactive about checking for hail damage on their siding and roofs. While hail is common in MN, in recent years above average hail storms have occurred in the Twin Cities and surrounding metro areas.
How Hail Damages a Roof
Hail is dangerous to your home’s roof because it damages and decreases the roof’s life expectancy. Damage to the roof occurs when the protective granular surface of the asphalt shingle loosens and falls off. With the granules removed the shingle loses some of its protection, shortening the life span of the roof and making it more susceptible to additional damage. Such damage can easily compound into leaks and additional structural damage, causing tens of thousands of dollars worth of more damage.
A professional and quality roofing contractor, Exteriors Plus has extensive experience helping Twin Cities metro-area homeowners with their roof and siding that has been damaged by hail and storms. We will assist you through the insurance claims process and provide the proper repairs and restorations to your roof and home. Please contact us today at (952) 213-2195.
What Should I Do If I Think I Have Hail Damage?
If you’re a homeowner and think you may have hail damage, the first thing you should do is call Exteriors Plus at (952) 213-2195 for a roof inspection. If one of our restoration specialists determines you may have damage, your next step would be to file an insurance claim with your homeowner’s insurance company. A lot of people ask: “Will insurance pay for a new roof?” This depends on your policy and who you have on your team. One of our trained professionals can assist with determining whether the damage is functional or cosmetic in nature. We have decades of combined experience and specialize in assisting homeowners with hail damage to their siding, roof, decks, and homes.
Wind Damage, Storm Damage, Hail Damage
Roofing materials are subject to severe damage from elements such as hail, strong winds, and flying debris. Generally, roofs are not designed to withstand winds of severe hail storm and tornado intensity. However, roofs may also be damaged by winds of moderate intensity, with gusts that may reach 50 to 75 miles per hour. The primary cause of wind damage in Minnesota is from the partial vacuum created by wind blowing over the edge of the roof. Nature tries to neutralize the low-pressure area by bringing in air from a higher pressure area, usually from inside the building. This air pushes up on the bottom side of the roof assembly. Over time, it loosens fasteners and breaks the adhesion, making the roof susceptible to damage from the next moderate or strong wind. To counteract the effects of wind-uplift forces, the roofing and insulation should be adequately fastened to the roof deck. Also a securely-fastened perimeter detail should be provided.

Well Oiled Machine! -Deanna Doyle
This company is a well-oiled machine! We had wind and hail damage and the first person we spoke with came to our house and met with our insurance adjuster. With patience and perseverance, this company worked with our insurance company to make sure they covered as much as possible. After our insurance company approved the siding we worked with Quy. Quy went above and beyond expectations. He came with samples of siding and educated us on the different types of siding, thickness and even created different mockups to give us ideas on color and style that would like nice for our house. Within a few days, a crew came to our house and completed the siding in four days. They were professional from start to finish and now our house looks amazing!
Highly Recommend Them! -Aimee Norasingh
We worked with Exteriors Plus for our roof and gutter replacement recently and I highly recommend them! The owner Quy responded really quickly and had his team come out the next day to check things out. After looking things over, they confirmed that we did have hail damage. This was the first time we have had damage and they were super helpful in helping us understand and navigate working with our insurance company and filing a claim. We had a big event coming up soon and had asked if they could work with us on the date to make sure things were done in time. The team was super quick in coming out and replacing the roof and worked the whole day. They were basically done after that. The gutters were replaced the following week and the team that came out was quick and did a really good job. They were amazing through the whole process and worked within our timeline! I highly recommend working with this company and will be letting anyone who asks know to work with Exteriors Plus....
