In Minnesota our extreme weather can turn into an extreme need for repair and fast. If you are a homeowner, you understand the importance of a sound roof and know that any damages can’t be left hanging over your head.  It is important to take a walk around of your property after a heavy storm to ensure elements of the outdoors don’t come creeping in.

Highly Visible Signs of Roof Damage:

Missing Shingles

If winds reach a high enough speed, it is possible your yard could scattered with shingles. If you don’t see them on the ground, be sure take a quick gaze on your roof for areas or patches that might be gone. If nothing is done about the damage and new shingles are not added it will weaken your roof structure and even lead to rot.

Missing fascia

Along with shingles being misplaced, fascia can also be torn off your home. If that happens, the elements of nature will likely seep in like wind, ice or water. Also you quite possibly could have an unexpected house guest, such as a bird or a squirrel family nuzzling in your lost fascia section.

Tree on Top of Home

Probably the most noticeable damage is a tree lying on your home. In this case, you need to make sure someone is called out same day. Not only could this lead to rot and house guests but depending on the weight of the fall and how heavy the tree is, your house could have massive structural damages and even collapse. The tree will need to be safely removed as soon as possible.
