Leaking Roof in Aitkin?
Even the most vigilant homeowner can be caught off guard by a leaking roof. Storms and high winds can damage roof shingles, and sometimes the damage does not become apparent until the snow melts. According to a study conducted by the Insurance Institute for Business and Home Safety (IBHS), roof leaks were more likely to occur in regions where freezing weather and hail were frequent.

Here are some loss prevention and maintenance tips from the IBHS to minimize water damage on your roof:
- Have a professional roof inspection annually.
- Request a detailed inspection report that includes the condition of the flashing, roof covering, parapets, and drainage system.
- In areas prone to wind and hail, consider an impact-resistant roof covering that has passed the FM 4473 or UL 2218 standard.
