What to Do When You Need an Emergency Roof Repair

February 14, 2020

Chances are, you will know when you need an emergency roof repair when it happens. After all, it’s an emergency! Some major examples of when you’ll need an emergency roof repair include, but are not limited to:

  • Impact damage on your roof, such as a fallen tree
  • Major leaks or multiple leaks
  • Animal infestations
  • Severely clogged or frozen gutters
  • Patches of torn-off shingles

Emergency Repairs vs Regular Repairs

Any type of roof problem, small or big, should always be addressed right away. So what exactly constitutes an emergency roof repair? A roof repair becomes an emergency when penetrations in your roof allow water to infiltrate your home and when damage rapidly worsens. Some problems you may experience during an emergency roof issue are:

  • An open hole in your roof
  • Water and leaks dripping from your ceiling
  • Puddles in your home
  • Moisture or pockets of water trapped in your walls
  • Damage on your roof that is visible from the ground

Temporary Roofing Solutions

There are times when you may need an emergency roof repair that your roofer cannot properly assess the damage and make a repair away. Severe weather conditions, animal infestations, or major structural damage are all different reasons why this may be the case. If we are unable to make a repair right away, we may suggest using some temporary solutions in the meantime until we can implement a more permanent solution.

Hole in the roof

If there is a hole in your roof, we may cover it with a tarp or another type of protective cover to prevent anything from getting into your home. 

Leaking water or moisture in walls

If you are experiencing leaks in your home during severe weather conditions, use large buckets or bowls to catch the leaks. Drain any pockets of water trapped in your drywall by poking a hole with a pencil or screwdriver and catching the water into a bucket. 

Animal infestation

If you have an animal infestation in your roof, you may need to call your local animal control before a roofer can fix your roof.
