Effective Tips & Tricks to Handle Emergency Roofing Repairs

Posted on March 2nd, 2016 by Applied Roofing Services

A roofing system is one of the most important features of your home, since it protects you, your family and everything inside. It is the first line of defense from natural hazards like wind, fire, rain, hail, ice and extremely hot and humid temperature. Being one of the most vulnerable parts of your property, a roofing system is always exposed to changing weather which deteriorates its quality with time. This also increases the risks of damage and can cause an emergency roof repair situation.

What Can Cause Emergency Roof Repair
Most of us shudder when there is a call for emergency roof repair or replacement. But rather than making a hustle, you need to be aware of the common reasons that damage your roof. This will help in protecting your roof in the best possible ways. Usually homeowners notice the need of emergency roof repair just after a heavy storm or rain. But there are many other factors that adversely damage your roof resulting in emergency roof repairs.

Tips to Handle Emergency Roof Repairs

Wait for the Right Time
If your roof has been hit by a hail storm, heavy snow or rain, it is advisable to wait until the weather improves. If it’s night, wait until the morning for proper lighting conditions. Don’t take any action in a hurry and put your life in danger just to assess the roof condition during severe and harsh weather.

Quick Inspection
Once the weather improves, it is the time for a quick roof inspection. If your roof hasn’t been damaged a lot, you can follow quick DIY tips to repair your roof on a basic level. Minor damages can be resolved by the homeowners themselves, but if it has been damaged badly, you must contact an expert roofing contractor.

Temporary Protection
This is one of the most important steps you must take to avoid any further damage to your roof and other household items. A protective cover or temporary roof must be installed to avoid further damage to the internal and structural damage. If water is seeping in, shift all costly furniture and belongings to another room.

Preventive Measures (Water Damage)
If your damage has led to a puddle of water, it should be removed immediately. Don’t let your roof collect rainwater as it can further damage your roofing system. If left unattended, stagnant water can be a favorable place for insects to breed.

Hiring Experts
If your existing roofing system needs a heavy repair or a complete replacement, don’t delay it further and contact a professional roofing company. Only an expert fencing company can offer emergency roof repair services to handle all your urgent needs. Don’t forget to ask a few important questions before hiring them.

  3. Could not have said this better myself. This is a great article, and I appreciate you taking the time to write it. I have been in the roofing business for a long time, and have helped many customers with their roofing repairs, roof replacements, and new roofs. There are many things I try and educate homeowners on, and am going to reference this article.

  4. Thanks for the tip that if your roof is damaged during a hail storm, wait to call the roofers until the storm is over. You also mention doing a quick inspection of your roof once the weather improves. I think it’s a good idea to choose a roofer that is local and has a physical address.

  5. I like the recommendation of doing a quick inspection of the roof after the weather has improved. If I needed to get my roof replaced I would want to know as soon as I could. I think that calling a professional might be the best and most reliable way of getting your roof repaired.

  6. I like that you said that it is important to not go up onto the roof until it is safe to do so. I am really afraid of my dad doing that because he is so ready to fix everything. I think that you could also just get a contractor to look at it if you think there is anything wrong; if you don’t know much about roofs, seeing the damage might not help too much.

  7. That’s a good tip to wait until the weather calms to do a quick inspection of your roof. That way you can see all the potential damages. It’s probably a good idea to get a pro inspection too, if you live in a place with lots of rough weather.

  8. I agree that it is wise to make sure that you are safe before embarking on your repair process. It seems useless to tackle a repair in the middle of a storm because the weather could create further damage or you could be hurt. It could be a good idea to be in touch with your property maintenance company so that you can be aware of how they go about the emergency repair process.

  9. Last night, a wind storm blew some of the branches off of the tall trees in my yard. There was one in my driveway so big that I could barely drag it away by myself. I’ve been worried that one of these branches might do some damage to my roof one of these days, so your advice on how to handle those situations is really helpful. Moving nice furniture and putting up temporary protection is a good tip for immediate help. It’s a good idea to do what you can while you wait for professional roofer to assess the damage.

  10. Thanks for your suggestion to get a roof inspection after any big rain or snow storm. I didn’t know that you should put a protective cover over your house to make sure nothing more becomes damaged when fixing it. My husband and I work all day so it might be difficult for us to perform our own roof repairs, but we will keep these suggestions in mind as we look into roofers.
