How to Handle a Roofing Emergency

Did a summer storm leave you with a leaky roof? Or a windy day knock a few shingles loose? Maybe the summer heat finally caught up to those old shingles. Whatever your roofing emergency consists of, we’ve got a step-by-step solution for you.

Keep Calm

While experiencing any kind of damage to your home is incredibly stressful, it’s important to maintain composure so that you can figure out how to minimize the damage and find a solution as quickly as possible.

One of the best ways to keep calm during a stressful time like this is knowing that you have a plan in place to conquer the issue. We recommend bookmarking this page so that you can reflect on it in the event of a roofing or home emergency!

Prevent Further Damage

If you’ve encountered a leaky in your roof caused by a summer storm, then the first step you’ll want to take is preventing further water damage throughout the rest of your home. To do this, you’ll want to place large buckets or pots (whatever you have available) under the leaks so that you can catch all of the dripping water.

This will prevent the water from causing damage to other parts of your home and will limit the potential for mold growth as well.

Call a Team of Professionals

Once you’ve limited the amount of future damage to your home, the next step is calling in professionals. We would never recommend a homeowner trying to make a roof repair on their own, especially if the extreme weather that caused the damage is still ongoing.
