When is Your Roof Damage Considered an Emergency?
A roofing emergency is any kind of problem with your roof that needs to be fixed right away to keep it from getting worse. Here are some examples of common roofing emergencies:
- Leaking roofs
- Damaged shingles
- Missing shingles
- Roof collapse
- Warped roof
- light coming inside from the roof
Causes of Roof Repair Emergencies
Some roofing emergencies happen quickly, while others are caused by a problem that has been going on for a long time but wasn’t noticed until it suddenly gets worse. A roofing emergency can catch even the most careful and responsible property owner off guard. Common reasons for roofing emergencies are:
- Heavy rain, ice, or snow, causes things to leak or flood. If your roof is old, it could mean that you didn’t notice damage that needs to be fixed right away.
- Storms and high winds can do a lot of damage to a roof’s structure, like break shingles, blow off flashings, crack the substrate, etc.
- During a storm, yard debris like tree branches can fall on the roof and cause serious roof leaks and dents in materials that would otherwise be strong.
- When fireplaces aren’t taken care of, they put too much stress on the chimney’s masonry and mortar joints. This can cause the fireplace walls to fall down, which could be dangerous, and can also cause problems for any cedar shake roofs on your home.
- Maintenance that isn’t done on time or installation that isn’t done right can cause major problems with the roof.
What to Do in A Roofing Emergency
Don’t try to handle a roofing emergency on your own. Walking around on a damaged roof could hurt you badly or cause even more damage. Even though you shouldn’t take matters into your own hands, there are a few things you can do to try to limit the damage until help arrives from a professional. These include:
- Stop the flow of water by using plastic tarps, buckets, or any other materials you can find.
- If you don’t want mold to grow in your home, get rid of any pools of water.
- Go outside and look for damage to your roof. If it is safe to do so, look at the inside of your roof from your attic.
- As soon as possible, you should talk to professionals about the problem.
