Coon Rapids Properties Affected by Major Spring Storms

Posted by at 6:39 PM

A severe weather system producing large hail and tornadoes swept through the Twin Cities north metro area recently, and home owners in various communities including Coon Rapids suffered property damage of varying degrees.  Was your home among them?  If you believe your home may have been one of them, don't guess -- get the opinion of an experienced storm damage repair expert today.  If you've been living in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area for any length of time, you know how often severe storms can strike, often without warning.  Weather like wind-driven and heavy rain, as well as tornadoes and straight-line winds, can have devastating affects on property.  Wind-blown rains can cause moisture intrusion under loose shingles.  Straight-line winds can uproot trees and blow them onto roofs, causing damage ranging from torn shingles to gaping holes.  Tornadoes--even if not directly passing over your home--can rip roofs, siding, and gutters off.  And damage can be erratic and unpredictable.  Houses side by side can have totally different damage --some severe, some having none at all.  Hailstones the size of those reported in the Coon Rapids area can produce extereme roof damage, especially to asphalt shingles.  It's important to have that damage inspected and repaired before the next severe storm strikes.  Minor damage such as a few loose shingles from this recent storm could result in much greater damage when the next heavy rain storm hits because you've already got an area where the integrity of your roof has been compromised.  Your roof is your home's first line of defense against moisture, insect, and rodent intrusion into the underlying roofing structure.  Undetected, even minor damage can result in slow deterioration from mold, rot, and insects.  You've made a substantial investment in your home.  Make sure it remains secure - call an experienced storm damage repair professional like Quarve Contracting, Inc.  For over 27 years they have helped Coon Rapids and other Twin Cities property owners protect their homes.  And they'll work closely with your insurance company to make sure that your claim is appropriately handled.  Call today for a free estimate.
