If you’re seeking an emergency roofing service, don’t fret! We’re sharing everything you need to know to go about this experience.
What Is Considered A Roofing Emergency
Living in Florida, the weather is always unpredictable and severe storms can cause our roofs to go from healthy to helpless in the matter of hours. While instances like clogged gutters, missing shingles and broken tiles do call for a repair, they aren’t emergency situations that are going to make or break your roof over night. Here are some situations that would warrant an emergency roofing service:
- A lightning strike directly hits your roof and burns a hole through it
- A tree limb flies off, crashes down onto your roof and punctures the surface and decking
- A metal panel or entire section of shingles gets torn off by powerful winds and exposes the underlayer
Who To Call When The Above Instances Happen
If any of the above instances happen to your roof, it would be in your best interest to call us, your roofing professionals, to take control of the situation. Our roofing contractors are trained to know what to do in the event of an emergency and will arrive promptly to the scene to repair the problem.
If the storm is still active, a contractor should tarp the damaged area to secure the roof and inside assets until the storm passes. When it’s safe to perform the repairs, we’ll prioritize your project to ensure you can get back to your routine as quickly as possible.
What To Do Until Our Contractors Arrive
If you’re in this situation, don’t panic! And if you’re in this situation during a storm, don’t attempt to get onto your roof for any reason. The most important thing you can do is shut off your main electric supply switch, grab a bucket or large plastic container to place under the leak, move furniture and other important assets, take pictures and hanging things off the walls, and cover anything that can’t be moved with plastic tarps. Lastly, it would be in your best interest to contact your insurance provider to notify them of the incident at hand.
Our emergency roofing service is designed to help homeowners when the unthinkable happens. But don’t worry, we’ll be by your side every step of the way. Contact us today to learn more about our services or get in touch with someone about an emergency service you’re experiencing!
