Emergency roofing situations are common during intense storms. Strong winds rip the shingles right off your roof, leaving your home exposed to water damage from the pelting rain. This results in multiple leaks throughout your house. In these moments, it can be easy to panic and not know what to. The most important thing you can do is call a roofing company that provides 24/7 emergency roof repairs services, such as Front Range Storm Contractors.
You Need Emergency Roof Repair. Now What?
Most roofing companies won’t send their roofers up on the roof during the full-on rage of a severe weather system. Here are some things you can to do limit the damage while you wait for emergency roof repairs.
Turn Off the Lights
If water gets into your home’s electrical system, it can cause all kinds of problems. It even has the potential to cause a spark strong enough to start a fire. Shutting off the power in the rooms experiencing the leak is an important step to protecting your home.
Catch the Water
You don’t want water to seep into your walls and ceilings. Putting out buckets, pans or even a large tarp to catch the water in your attic can help. You can also put buckets under water dripping from the ceiling to protect your floors and carpeting.
Move Your Belongings
If you have furniture, electronics or appliances that in direct line of the leak, move them out of the way. You may also want to cover them with a tarp.
Once the storm lets up, the roofers will come to your home and cover the roof with an emergency tarp until they have a chance to get a better look at the damage. If you need emergency roof repairs, contact (720) 506-4425 and we will be there as soon as we can.
