Has your East Bethel, MN home endured a recent hail storm? Welter Construction recommends a roof inspection immediately, especially if your property has an asphalt roofing system! Asphalt shingles are vulnerable to break and crack, but the most common hail damage is a form of dented or crushed areas usually in the middle of an asphalt shingle. This crushed, or dented, area can displace the shingle from the roof entirely! When the hail hits an asphalt shingle, the granules in the shingle are forced into the shingle mat which will produce a shorter life span for the shingle itself and your roofs shingle mat. The good news is that usually insurance claims will cover hail damage! Welter Construction is your insurance claim specialist in East Bethel, MN! Welter walks with our customers from the insurance claim process from start to finish!
Hail Damage can also occur on wooden and slate shingles. Hail cracks wooden shingles, usually along the grain. Hail damage to wooden shingles will cause parts of the shingle to break apart and crumble. When hail damages slate shingles the cracks are more sporadic than with wooden shingles. Slate shingles can break from their fasteners after hail damage. Depending on the severity of the damage they can even fall off the roof all together!
