A simple roof problem like missing shingles can compromise the structural integrity of your home. However, not every single roof issue calls for an emergency repair. Knowing when to call your trusted roof contractors is important.
Before picking up your phone or going to your roofer, ask yourselves these two questions:
Is There Water Infiltration in My Roofing System?
Once your roofing system gets massive damage, it will have holes or passages where water can seep into your home. Water infiltration serves as your go signal to call for an emergency repair. This kind of problem can create several issues like roof rotting, cracked ceiling and other unexpected collateral damages.
It is vital that professionals stop the water immediately since it can soak your roof’s insulation. The moment this happens, the underlayment and decking will incur moisture damage, which can be costly to replace or repair.
Is My Roofing System Heavily Compromised?
Various happenings, particularly, weather calamities can compromise your roofing system, siding, gutters and the whole exterior of your home. Tall trees can accidentally penetrate your roof when storms come, and debris can cause impact damage. You must contact a good roofing contractor as soon as possible.
After answering those two questions, you’ll now have an idea if your roofing problem is an emergency or not. In case it is an emergency, your roofers will first secure the problem area with a temporary protective cover.
Afterwards, they will inspect your roof to gauge how extensive the damage is and come up with the best remedy to your problem.
