Location: Excelsior, MN
Renovations: Roof Replacement
Following a fierce summer hailstorm, an Excelsior, MN resident noticed damage to her roof. As anyone who lives in Minnesota knows, in addition to being situated along the north edge of what is known as tornado alley, Minnesota has a robust summer hail season.
If you live in a hail-prone area, you know that it can cause major damage to your home’s exterior. Hail can dent aluminum siding and gutters, break tile, and tear asphalt shingles. It can also crack vinyl siding and wood shakes. Large hail can even be dense enough to puncture a roof.
The Excelsior resident saw Iron River Construction trucks in her neighborhood and decided to seek a consultation about how to address her roof damage.
A Full Home Inspection and Insurance Claims Services
Because hail damage is not always visible from the ground level, it was difficult for the Excelsior resident to determine the severity of her roof’s damage. For this reason, Iron River Construction meticulously examines every property before choosing a course of action. After examining the Excelsior roof, we determined that it needed to be replaced.
Here are the steps we take to help homeowners navigate the insurance claims process:
- Take photos of all of the damage
- Review our findings with the homeowner
- Sign the insurance proceeds agreement
- Call the insurance company and open the claim
- Meet with the insurance adjuster to make sure they know the scope of the damage
Ultimately, the insurance company agreed to pay for a new roof. Our designers worked with her to choose a style to suit her home. Ultimately, she chose CertainTeed’s Landmark laminate roofing shingles, which are designed to replicate the appearance of cedar shake, in the shade More Black.
The advantages of CertainTeed’s Landmark shingles include:
- UL-certified as meeting the industry’s toughest third-party manufacturing quality standards
- Dual-layered construction provides extra protection to withstand Excelsior’s tough weather
- 10-year algae-resistance warranty
- Class A fire-resistance rating
Because the Excelsior home was far from the street, it did present some challenges for our crew who had to deliver the materials to the roof. However, we were still able to complete the project on time!
A Beautiful New Roof, Designed To Withstand Excelsior Weather
When the project was finished, the homeowner was especially appreciative that we were able to help her navigate the insurance claims process, so she was only responsible for the deductible. And she was thrilled with her new roof!
