The Minneapolis area has been struck by some incredible storms in the past week. For many in the northern communities, the damage is beyond repair. Despite these significant losses in our communities, we are very fortunate to observe there was minimal loss of life and human injury considering the extreme weather in Minneapolis on May 22nd. Our highest hopes are with the survivors and families of those most affected.
For homeowners who experienced a moderate amount of damage, home restoration is a few steps away. On May 10th and 22nd, 1000s of structures experienced hail, wind and water damage to their exterior surfaces. For the individuals that own homes with moderate or minor damage, the fastest option to recovery is to assess the damage and file an insurance claim.
