A Quick Overview on Handling Emergency Roof Repairs

By Stacy Mellete

Keeping your roof in good condition is crucial to the protection of your home from the damaging effects of harsh weather. While taking a proactive approach to roof maintenance is highly recommended, roofing emergencies can occur, especially during a storm.

A tree falling on your roof due to strong winds can happen all of a sudden and there’s hardly any way to prepare for that or any similar situation.

A local roofing contractor is just a phone call away, but when should you call them? When is a roofing problem considered an emergency?


About Roofing Emergencies

Severe weather conditions are not to be taken lightly, especially if you have a compromised roofing system. Extensive and costlier roof damage is expected once winds exceeding 50 miles per hour and intense rainfall or hailstorms occur.

This exposes your home to leaks and other problems that may affect your home’s structural integrity.

You must know what to do when emergencies arise. Time is of the essence, once you see water spots on your interior walls and ceiling, you shouldn’t delay. Call your trusted roofers right away so that the necessary roof repairs can be performed.

Expectations During an Emergency Roof Repair

One thing to keep in mind when dealing with a roofing emergency is to not give in to panic. The pros will arrive at your home as quickly as possible to provide immediate repairs. They’ll also install a protective cover to mitigate further structural damage. Once the storm has passed, they’ll evaluate your roof thoroughly before recommending a more lasting solution.
