  1. Roofing/Siding
    I'm inspecting my roof here in MN, and wondering if someone who know about hail damage can give me an idea whether this is worth a claim? Chance of insurance company replacing? Or else is this just normal wear & tear on a roof. It's about 20 years old. thanks

    I found this site, by doing a Google search for DIY home repair. Back in September 2010, we were hit by a hail storm that damaged our home. I live in a mobile home, that I own. I have vinyl siding, and one side of my home was severely damaged. It looks like someone took a baseball bat to it...

    Our house is located on a wooded site, surrounded by numerous mature deciduous and coniferous trees. In the fall, our roof (composite shingles) and gardens get covered, up to a foot in places, with pine needles and oak and maple leaves. If we really wanted to keep the place clear, we would need...
