When Is Emergency Roof Service Necessary?

Make sure you know what to do in case roof damage causes an emergency.

Any roofing repair is important, but determining whether damage has put your home in an emergency situation is imperative to protecting your home’s structural foundation, your safety and your wallet.

A good rule of thumb is that anytime the plywood underneath your shingles is exposed, it is an alarming situation and your roofing contractor should be called as soon as possible. Whether high winds have ripped shingles off of your roof, a tree limb caused damage or insect infestation resulted in substantial deterioration, all these situations require prompt roof attention.

Other emergency situations that require an immediate response are ones that pose a safety threat to your living environment. As always, use your discretion when handling roofing situations. It’s always better to call your roofer sooner rather than later when you find the first signs of any roofing damage. A few emergency scenarios could include:

-Hail or rain damage

-Heavy ice buildup

-Damage from strong win

-Falling tree damage

-Roof leaking

-Exposed roofing

If you experience any of these or other emergency roof situations, seek safe shelter immediately. Emergency roof issues can lead to fires, extreme water damage and other devastation. Make sure your family has a plan, just in case of an accident. If anyone is injured, smells smoke or sees flames, call 911 immediately.
