Given roofs are built to last, it’s only natural for a homeowner to expect their roofing system to weather any storm. Unfortunately, after years of exposure to the elements, compounded by lack of maintenance, damage builds up, resulting in roofing issues. In a fit of panic, anything can seem like an urgent concern, but what exactly is a roofing emergency?
Defining a Roofing Emergency
While any roofing concern should be addressed right away, you’re looking at a real roofing emergency when you have an active leak, which you’ll unfortunately find out about in the middle of a storm. This means you can visibly observe water infiltration occurring and should have a roof repair done stat!
Other instances when you need to schedule repairs as soon as possible include roofing holes large enough for you to see through and fire damage.
What to Expect During Emergency Roof Repairs
If emergency repairs are needed in the middle of a storm, your roofing contractor will wait until the weather calms down to mobilize a team to address your concerns, ensuring the safety of the crew.
For the most part, emergency repairs entail the use of a protective covering to stop a leak and prevent further structural and interior damage. This will usually involve tarping the problem area first. Once the severe weather event passes, your roofers will come in to assess the damage and come up with a more permanent solution for you.
