Your roof is one of the most essential parts of your home structure. It keeps the rain and snow out, shields you from rain and falling branches, and much more. There is no such thing as small damage when it comes to roof damage. Even a tiny leak can cost you thousands of dollars in damages if you do not get it repaired quickly enough.
If you only have a small leak, it can probably wait until morning to call a roofer to come out and repair it, but if you have a roofing emergency — where there is substantial damage to the structure of your roof, causing a significant amount of water into your home quickly — you cannot afford to risk waiting until business hours are open. Roofing emergencies often happen during hurricanes, tornadoes, hailstorms, thunder, and rainstorms, and other significant weather events, because they tend to be destructive to the area, and that means your roof.
Examples of Roofing Emergencies Include:
– Part of the roof collapsing.
– Wind or weather damaging or removing large sections of the shingles or roofing.
– Lightning causing visible damage.
– Something like a tree branch penetrating a section of the roof.
– Damage from an internal fire.
– A small leak that grows quickly or that is not responding to attempts to patch it.
So, what do you do when your roof becomes damaged at 3 a.m., and it cannot wait until normal business hours to be patched or repaired?
When you have a roofing emergency, vacate your home right away and call us. If this has happened during a rainstorm, and there is no water pouring into your home, turn off your electricity to ensure it does not interact with the water while you wait for your repair team to arrive. Do not attempt to repair the damage yourself; the roof is too important to your home to risk putting a Band-Aid on; it needs professional repairs.
It is quite rare for a roof to come out unscathed after a significant weather event, even if you only incur minor damage from it, that does not require emergency repairs. Getting those minor damages repaired in a timely manner can help your roof avoid worse destruction from the next weather event, or even a smaller one; those can slowly chip away at your roof, leading to bigger damage down the line.
If you have a small leak, you can make a temporary patch to minimize the damage until roofing contractors can come out to make repairs, but if you have substantial enough damage to warrant an emergency, waiting will only lead to more damage and cost you more money in the long run.
