What qualifies as an “Emergency Repair”?
Any event where your entire roofing system is compromised qualifies for emergency roof repair. The most common instance is when inclement weather like a hurricane that could include high wind, heavy rain, or hail that causes secondary water damage.
In cases like this, we can install an emergency tarp or temporary covering on your roof and wait until the bad weather ends. Once the weather has passed we will recommend appropriate repairs or a replacement to fix your roof.
What Should I Do When My Roof Gets Damaged?
Don’t panic if your roof gets damaged. The damage has been done and it’s just a matter of documenting it for your insurance claims. We recommend that you call us before your insurance provider. We can provide an in-depth assessment of your roof and then advocate on your behalf to your insurance adjuster.
When Is a Roof Leak Repair Necessary?
Any time that the roof is compromised and is vulnerable to water intrusion requires a roof repair. The roof can be compromised by not only heavy downpours but also high winds that often occur during the seasonal hurricane. These winds can lift the shingles or tear them off completely. The high winds can also cause branches to fall from trees and scratch and penetrate the shingles. These damages can also result in costly repairs in the interior of your home as well.
