Essential Steps To Take During An Emergency Roof Leak
Minimize Water Damage To The Inside Of Your Home
It is important to minimize water damage as much as you can. Once you have discovered that there is leakage springing from your roof, try your best to find the precise spot leakage is stemming from. If you have large buckets, place them under the leak to prevent any damage to your floors.
Determine Where The Damage Has Occurred
This all depends on the scope and nature of your roof damage. You may be able to safely pinpoint the exact location, but keep in mind that you may not be able to isolate the damage location if structural damage has occurred. This is when an experienced professional should be called to inspect the roof damage. Ideally, you will be able to locate the damage from below.
Cover The Area With Tarp Until Help Arrives
In some cases, buckets may not suffice for large areas, and so a household tarp may be a better option to cover the area temporarily as water leaks into your home or office. A tarp can also be used to cover up the damaged section of your roof if you are able to safely secure it by placing heavy wood overtop to prevent the tarp from slipping.
When To Call For Roof Repairs
Many things can go wrong with your roof over time. Extreme weather-related accidents from fallen trees and other weather-related damage to fires that can compromise your property’s entire structure, even minor damage can happen at any time.
Leaks And Holes
Even a small hole can cause further problems down the road like leaking water into your home or business
Loose Shingles & Tiles
Extreme weather or poor installation can cause cracking or loose tiles and shingles.
General Wear And Tear
Roof damage is unavoidable at times — especially if you have owned the property for a long period of time. Stemming from natural wear and tear from nature such as branches, animals.
Your chimney, windows, and ventilation ports must be sealed with flashing. If this process was not done properly or is not well maintained, roof damage can result.
Puddles Of Water
Inadequate roofing can cause dents in the roof, which results in pools of water collecting in these areas. If you notice puddles on your roof, it is important that you contact your roofing company as soon as possible – over time these puddles will collect even more water causing your roof extensive damage and even cause your roof to collapse.
