Hail Damage to Alexandria Home

Hail Damage to Alexandria Home



Monday evening brought severe storms to the Alexandria area. Golf ball sized hail pelted the area as a result of a summer storm which brought lightning, rain, hail and wind to the area on Monday, July 17, 2017.


The largest report of hail on July 17, 2017 near Alexandria was 1.75 inches. We estimate that 9,000 buildings were in the affected area and the probability of hail detected was significant. Based on this information you can expect to see damage to vehicles, roofs and siding in isolated areas.


If your property has been damaged from a recent storm and you’re unsure of what direction to go, Stinson Services offers free guidance as well as storm damage inspections for homes and commercial buildings. Some things to look for from the ground are dings to external light fixtures, window trim, screens, soft metal downspouts and air conditioner units.

Our team of HAAG Certified Inspectors are trained to spot wind and hail damage. They can help you answer any questions you or your insurance company may have during the insurance claims process.


As a licensed and insured roofing contractor, we have repaired roofing projects completed by unqualified and sometimes unethical contractors on too many occasions. We’ve heard the stories too many times. To add insult to injury, the contractor that installed the roof cannot be found.


Many of these situations have come up from the property owner opting for what seems like the low cost option. Only to be frustrated when they have to pay hundreds or thousands to correct what the previous roofing company failed to do correctly. It is rare for these low cost roofers to be able to meet the service expectations.


Stinson Services takes pride in our high praise from the Minnesota Better Business Bureau, Google reviews, Nextdoor and Thumbtack as well as a long list of previous homeowners willing to share their experiences.
