How to Manage a Roofing Emergency

Contents

From hard-hitting hailstones and torrential downpours, to blizzards and tornadoes, severe weather conditions can often lead to roofing emergencies. If your shingles have been blown off, it’s only a matter of time before the roof allows rain, snow and other elements to penetrate your roofing structure, leading to critical interior damage. To help prevent this, Bone Dry Roofing – West discusses how to handle a roofing emergency in this post.

 Roofing Emergency

Situations That Require Emergency Roof Repairs

Fire, animals and severe weather events are usually the cause of most roofing problems. Winds that exceed 50 miles per hour can take a toll on your roofing system, tearing off shingles and exposing the substrate to compromising elements. Large tree limbs can also break off and puncture your roofing material. Raccoons and squirrels like to chew through rotted wood, leaving sizable holes and cracks in the roof. Roof fires are the most dangerous since they can spread through the entire house.

Calling a Roofer for Emergency Repairs

Don’t attempt to inspect your roof while a storm is raging. High winds and lightning can knock you off the ladder and compromise your safety. However, you can look for signs of leaks in the attic, such as water stains on ceilings and walls, to determine if there’s damage. When in doubt, ask a roofer to conduct an inspection.

Any reputable local roofer will wait until the storm subsides and then respond in a timely manner to prevent further damage. For example, if water is pouring from the ceiling, they’ll assess the damage and provide a long-term solution. Whether it be an extensive roof repair or a full-on replacement, whichever solution they advise will help prioritize your safety.

What a Homeowner Should Know About Roof Damage

The last thing you want to do when dealing with a roofing emergency is to panic. Contact your insurance provider and bring in a trusted roofing contractor for assistance. Avoid storm chasers who take advantage of desperate homeowners and swindle them out of their money. Once a contractor has secured the roof, consider your repair or replacement options to ensure your home is protected from bigger, costlier problems down the road.

Working with Bone Dry Roofing was best decision I made to deal with a leak in my roof. They took their time to correctly determine where the leak was coming from and the best way to fix it! And, they did! Everyone I worked with from their staff was awesome! I will definitely use them again!!

Initially called this company for a quote because I saw their truck in Denver and the driver used their blinker. Compared to 2 other roofing companies their quote was in the middle and was later adjusted for less materials being used than expected. After signing the contract they were ready to start the next week on a garage roof and home roof repair (weather permitting). The team was respectful of our home & our neighbor’s. Throughout the entire process the communication was great. Highly recommend!

Fernando did an amazing job! He was very friendly. We have a very pitched roof and so I was very impressed with his bravery. ( would not catch me up there ever)<br /> <br /> Very happy customer and highly recommend!
