Hail ruined the roof on this home in Stillwater, MN. The homeowners contacted Trinity Exteriors for a free inspection, and the Storm Consultant confirmed they would need a roof replacement. After the insurance company approved the homeowners' claim, Trinity crews removed the old shingles to put in new Owens Corning Duration in Estate Gray.
As the guardians of homes against hail, Trinity Exteriors always offers free storm inspections to homeowners. This Inver Grove Heights homeowner took advantage of the inspection even though their shingles were only 5 years old. Trinity's Claim Specialist not only found hail damage, but also discovered part of the roof was at too low of a pitch for asphalt shingles to be effective. After the insurance company approved the homeowners' claim, Trinity Crews corrected the flat roof and installed proper water-resistant materials, then constructed the rest of the roof in Tamko Heritage in Rustic Black.
A hail storm can hit whole swaths of cities, or it can hit small pockets of neighborhoods. The storm that hit Inver Grove Heights in the Fall of 2016 was a bit patchy, so these homeowners were smart to call their insurance agent first for guidance on whether or not to file a claim. Their agent suggested they have an initial inspection by a qualified professional to see if there was any damage. This helps them avoid an unwarranted claim, which in some cases may raise their rates. Our Claims Specialist performed a free inspection, and documented many hail hits. The homeowners went through the claims process and once approved, our crews installed new Owens Corning TruDefinition Duration Storm in Driftwood. These are Class 4 impact shingles for which many insurance companies provide a new roof discount.
