What to Do When You Have a Leaking Roof?
Having a leaking roof isn’t fun, and it can easily cause water damage to your home. This is why it is important to take corrective steps as quickly as possible.
The first thing to do when you have a leaking roof is to move things out of the way. A leaking roof is bad enough. Don’t allow the situation to get worse by letting water ruin your belongings.
Anything that can be affected by the leaking water should be removed from the area.
The next thing to do is to contain the water. This will help you greatly curtail how much damage the water can possibly cause. Use buckets, garbage cans. Anything that will help you contain the water is fine.
The next thing is to look for a sagging area of your ceiling. This would generally indicate a collection of water in that area. Leaving this bulge to erupt on its own can lead to a serious mess you didn’t bargain for.
Poke the bulge with a stick, a mop handle or anything more useful. This way, you’ll be able to control how big the leaking hole is and you can catch the water with a bucket.
If your property is insured, then it is a good idea that you take pictures for the insurance company. This is very important and can’t be overlooked. The pictures will help you show the extent of the damage to your roof and to any other household items.
Emergency Roof Repairs FAQs
- Is my damaged roof an emergency?
This is relatively easy for you to judge. Generally, if your roof is leaking water, or the tiles are looking like they could fall off soon, then it is pretty safe to call that an emergency.
Also, if you have a caved roof, it is also an emergency. If your roof is looking like the whole thing can come down at any time, that also is an emergency.
If there is any indication that the people living in or working in the building might be in danger, then your damaged roof is definitely an emergency.
- Must I vacate my property for repairs to be carried out on my roof?
This totally depends on the extent of damage to your roof. If your roof is severely damaged or is caved due to tree damage, then it is a lot safer for you to vacate the premises whilst repairs are being carried out.
- Can I DIY emergency roofing repair?
Absolutely not. We aren’t saying this because we are professionals and our services would cost you some money compared to if you just DIY your emergency roof repair.
We advise you not to DIY your emergency roof repair because the process of repairing a roof can be very dangerous. The danger in doing emergency repair for a roof is doubled if the weather is rough. It is a lot safer all round for you to call a professional.
To clear any doubt in your mind, compare what it would cost to have your roof repaired by professionals to what it would cost if you have a falling accident whilst trying to DIY your emergency roof repair.
- If my roof is caved with the tree in it, will you take away the tree alongside repairing my roof?
Generally, emergency roof repair companies won’t be able to take the tree away. That job is for tree felling contractors. All we can do is to help you repair your roof professionally.
