Do You Offer Hail Proof Roofs?
Hail storms are vicious. Since 1980, there have been approximately 3,000 hail storms recorded per year around the country. Minnesota definitely gets its fair share of that 3,000. And amongst that 3,000 are cars, farms, homes, and various other items that are extremely damaged by these forceful storms.
But what seems to plague most people is damage to their roofs. This damage can range from minor bruising of the shingles to holes in the shingles and even the plywood underneath the shingles. So this brings about the question of whether or not there are Minnesota hail proof roofs?
There are different classes of roofs. These classes range from 1 to 4 with 4 being the highest class. When you talk to Berkeshire Exteriors, ask about class 4 roofs and how to have a class 4 placed on your home so that you can better withstand the hail damage MN.
But the truth is that there is no roof that is fully hail proof. The manufacturer will set a limit on how large the hail can be before the warranty is void. Once the warranty is void, you will not be able to make a claim to the manufacturer. However, you do have a Minnesota roofer that will work with you, despite the fact that Minnesota hail proof roofs do not exist.
So what does this mean?
This means that there is not a single hail proof roof in Minnesota. Despite the fact that some manufacturer’s will advertise that their roofing is hail proof, it is time to be realistic.
Take this into consideration: If hail the size of golf balls comes down, can you expect anything in its path to not be damaged? Look at the trees in the vicinity and see how the hail damages the trees. If the trees can’t withstand it, then perhaps a roof may not either. However, the roof may do a little better.
Questions to ask a Minnesota roofer
When you call Berkeshire Exteriors, ask anything you feel is important. For the different types of roofs, you may want to ask:
• What is the best protection I can get?
• What is the largest hail that the different roof classes can handle?
• What is the cost per class?
• How long will the process take?
And you can see if a simple repair will suffice before making the big decision to replace your entire roof. That is certainly a big investment, especially if your insurance will not cover the damage or will not cover it in its entirety. This does occur sometimes, so be sure you know your insurance policy and what it says about hail damage. Different insurance companies define hail damage differently.
