Your roof protects you and your family from the elements. It’s important that you as a homeowner know how to recognize situations that require emergency roof repair services. The following are some of the questions we often get asked about such situations.
QUESTION: What Are Situations That Qualify as a Roofing Emergency?
If you notice any signs of water intrusion – leaks, flooding, an electrical short – you should call for immediate roofing assistance. We recommend checking your attic for leaks, no matter how minor. It’s worth remembering that roofing leaks sometimes do not reach the ceiling, and instead, they seep into the walls. You might also see other signs like clumping insulation as well as water stains on the ceiling, roof deck and rafters.
QUESTION: Should I Wait Until the Weather Clears Before Calling a Roofer?
No. Roofing problems can get worse really fast, especially in the middle of a storm. What you should do is look up roofers like Willi Roofing Services, which offers emergency roofing services. We have a dedicated team ready to respond to your call as soon as the weather lets us safely travel to your home.
QUESTION: What Happens After We Call for Emergency Repairs?
The first thing we do is install an emergency tarp to protect your home against further water intrusion. We also conduct short-term repairs if we find certain issues that can’t wait until the weather subsides. Once the weather clears, we will assess the condition of your roof and come up with a repair plan that addresses apparent and potential roofing issues.
QUESTION: Can the Real Repairs Wait Until Later?
We strongly advise against leaving roofing repairs for later. Leaks can quickly get worse when the next storm comes around. If repair costs are a concern, we can work with your insurance provider in providing proper documentation of the damage. The sooner your insurance adjuster receives it, the sooner you receive the initial check to get the repairs started.
