How to Deal With a Roofing Emergency

Roofs are designed to last for decades. Still, they will inevitably break down at some point. If this happens, don’t fret! Here are some ways to deal with a roofing emergency:

Inspect Your Roof

Having a damaged roof can be frustrating, but you need to keep calm. If the situation permits, inspect the intensity of the damage. Natural calamities or extreme weather conditions can cause a broken roof. Either way, if it is left unattended, it can lead to the following:

  1. Tree branches and leaves piling up on the roof

  2. Rodents making holes

  3. Decaying of roof materials

  4. Damage to furniture and belongings inside the house

  5. Breakage of house structures like walls, flooring, etc

When inspecting your roof, do not walk on it so you can avoid harm.

Manage if You Can

In case it is only a leak, you can do temporary repairs to prevent further damage. You can do this while waiting for professional help.

  1. Control the water flowing inside your house by sweeping it away from your roof.

  2. Find from where the leak is coming.

  3. Perform a temporary repair patch through tarping. You will need tools, such as duct tape, sealants, patches, tarps or a rubber sheet.

  4. If you cannot handle the roofing emergency on your own, don’t panic, and contact professional roofers instead.
