Kuhl’s Contracting and Kuhl Design Build have worked in Edina, Minnesota for over 25 years as experts in roofing, remodeling and storm damage repairs. In that time we have developed hundreds of lasting relationships with Edina homeowners as their trusted storm damage contractor. Check out our galleries to see all of the Edina roofs we have replaced as the result of wind and hail damage. But we are far more than the best Edina wind and hail damage contractor, we are also experts in the insurance process. We have worked through hundreds and hundreds of storm damage insurance claims for our Edina clients. Most of the insurance claim storm damage work we do in Edina relates to hail and wind damage, but some pertains to tree damage, floods and fires.
Edina homes were built mostly between the 1950’s and 1990’s, although there is a strong trend towards tear downs and rebuilds that has taken hold in the past ten years. When storm damage occurs in Edina, unlike some surrounding communities, the cost of the damage tends to be higher than normal given the concentration of high value properties.
The architecture of Edina homes follows that of other surrounding Twin Cities communities in many regards. Cape cod, Colonial, ramblers, Tudors and modern day classics adorn the Edina landscape. The specific area in Edina determines largely what style of home one sees. There are older areas with classic architectural styles, mid-century areas with many ramblers and areas more recently developed with large contemporary homes. Edina homes are almost all traditionally stick-framed structures with a combination of fiberglass batt and cellulose insulation systems, making them more prone to heat loss and ice dam formation.
Construction assemblies and materials that are common to Edina are also common in other Twin City neighborhoods. For example, roofs in Edina are typically asphalt shingles or cedar shakes, with the random slate or metal roof. Probably 90% of the roofs in Edina are asphalt shingle, with the other 10% being comprised of cedar, slate metal and other materials. Edina roof styles include hip roofs, gable roofs, mansard roofs, flat roofs and the occasional gambrel roof.
If you live in Edina, the most successful plan for extending the life of your roof is to keep a regular schedule and do some very basic things. In the case of all Edina roofs, with the exception of slate, it is wise to send a professional up on the roof twice a year.
