Even the smallest roof issues should never be ignored. Your roofing system should be inspected after extreme weather to ensure it hasn’t been compromised. Small problems, when left unaddressed, can turn into bigger, costlier repairs.
Today, your local roofing expert, WestPro, Inc., discusses what you need to know about emergency roof repair.
Situations That Call for Emergency Roof Repair
Roof damage from harsh weather events, animals and fire usually require emergency repair. High winds can be strong enough to detach shingles and expose the substrate. Trees can topple over your home and puncture the roof.
Small animals like squirrels and raccoons can create huge holes in your roof by chewing off their wood components. Fire and lightning can also destroy parts of your roof.
It’s important to keep calm in these situations. Immediately call your insurance provider and a reliable roofing contractor for assistance. Beware of storm chasers who take advantage of homeowners, especially after a weather event. Only hire licensed residential and commercial roofers like WestPro, Inc.
