Every responsible home or commercial building owner understands the importance of the roofing system. If successfully installed and maintained, the roof can deter heat and precipitation from seeping into the interior home and damaging important belongings. But what would happen if a torrential downpour blew through the town and ripped your roof shingles away? Or if a large, overhanging tree fell on the roof unexpectedly? Residential roof replacement experts from Genesis Roofing share some scenario planning for when roofing emergencies occur.
You Suspect Your Roof is Damaged
Knowing the possible effects of severe weather events will push you to check for potential roof damage. But unless you’re professionally trained, it’s best not to climb your roof just to inspect it. From the safety of the ground, use binoculars to try and inspect your roof for anything amiss.
You can also check your attic for exposed roofing components or water leaks. Once you find any, be sure to call for professional storm damage restoration services.
Your Roof is Definitely Damaged
If there is water leaking from the ceiling during or after rainfall, then you definitely have to inspect for infiltration damage. Broken or missing shingles, excessive granule loss and torn roof flashing are also telltale signs of severe roofing damage. If you notice these examples on your roof, immediately contact a local roofing contractor to help you further assess the situation. Rather than settling for a DIY patch up, opt for the long-term solutions that an experienced roofer can offer you.
