Emergency roof repair prevents small damages from becoming catastrophes. Our residential roofing company provides same day service that stops water in its tracks. We get to your house and inspect the rooftop as soon as it’s safe. Most importantly, we stop any leaks that are currently penetrating into your home to prevent the extensive water damage they can cause.
Even the seemingly smallest leaks can mean major emergency roof repair. Homeowners tend to put off having a leak fixed when it is a small drip in their house. That’s a bad idea. Anytime water is visible inside your home, you should call immediately. What you can see coming in is often just the tip of the iceberg. Delaying repairs could lead to a sudden flood of water.
The longer water is allowed to stand inside your attic space, the more opportunity it has to do major damage like cause wood rot to your structure. Moisture is a key ingredient to the formation of a mold colony. Difficult to remove and dangerous to your family, mold can be prevented by contacting us as soon as you notice a leak.
When you have a major leak or puncture from a storm, emergency roof repair should be obtained immediately after the storm has passed. This is critical not only to lessen the impact of the damage, but it’s also necessary to file a claim with your insurance company within a certain time frame. With same day service available, prompt recovery is possible.
Not all types of storm damage require emergency roof repair. Things like degranulation of your asphalt shingles or denting of a metal roof are great indicators that damage has been done. We still recommend calling and scheduling an appointment.
Hail damage - While most roofing materials handle small hailstorms well, systems that produce large hail stones or even small stones and high winds can wreak havoc on your rooftop. Denting to metal roofs can be purely aesthetic, but it can also allow water to stand on the surface and cause it to weaken. More troubling is the effect hail can have on the ever important flashing. These metal pieces that seal around the edges of protrusions like vents and chimneys are dented by hail, which causes them to bend or break. This allows water to seep into your home. Fortunately, during emergency roof repair, we always have flashing with us and can quickly replace it.
Wind damage - From stripping your rooftop of its materials to turning limbs into dangerous projectiles, strong winds are a roof’s natural enemy. When you lose shingles or other materials in a storm, we carefully examine the underlayment and wood deck. Often, the fasteners that were holding things in place tear through causing gaping holes for water to travel through into your attic. Our emergency roof repair services use tarps to seal the leak off from the rest of your home and prevent damage to your interior walls and belongings. Once that is complete, we can do a thorough inspection of the entire surface - not just the obvious issue
