Once your roofing system has been compromised and is exposed, causing leaks and other kinds of damage, then this can be classified as a roofing emergency. However, some homeowners might panic and not know what to do moving forward. Fortunately, one of the top roof repair companies in the area, Allstar Construction, shares a brief guide on what to do during a roof emergency. Read on to learn more about it.
Tarp the Affected Areas
Tarping is one of the best ways to quickly prevent additional roofing damage. This also bodes well for your insurance claim since you’ve shown proof that you’ve done due diligence in protecting your home from additional damage. Leaving damage alone can void your insurance claim and lead to costly repairs. Not to mention that some insurance companies will reimburse you for it. While it may look unsightly, this quick protective solution can help protect your home against additional weather damage.
Call Your Emergency Roofer
Once you know that your home has been affected by a severe weather event, call on your local emergency roofing contractors for assistance. They will visit your home once the situation settles and carry out necessary repairs or replacements as needed. Remember that time is of the essence, so do not hesitate to call them at a moment’s notice.
It’s also worth noting that you should be wary of storm chasers. Storm chasers are dubious “roofing contractors” who offer their services at a suspiciously low price. They often do subpar, or no work at all then disappear without a trace. They also require payments upfront which is something no trustworthy roofer would do.
