What do you do when a tree falls on your roof or high winds rip your roof away? When your roof system is compromised, it will allow water to infiltrate your home. Our Albuquerque emergency roof repair experts will arrive at your home immediately to tarp your roof, assess the damage, and get to work to restore your roof and protect your home.
What Happens During Emergency Roof Repairs?
When our roofing contractors are called for emergency repairs, they mobilize quickly. Safety is a top priority so our technicians will wait for the storm to subside if it hasn't already. As soon as the storm clears, our roofing contractors will put a water-tight tarp in place to protect the home against water penetration. If the roof is damaged by fire, we will bring the structure back to a water-tight condition right away.
Once the interior of your home is protected from water with a tarp or plastic sheeting, we will work to remove excess water from the roof. Will will check that roof drains and scuppers are working and open as a common cause of roof collapse and leaks is excess water accumulation on the surface. Next, our experts will pinpoint the source of the leak and work to perform repairs as fast as possible. We will choose repairs that do the least amount of damage to your roofing membrane.
Emergency Flat Roof Repair
While most emergency roof repairs cannot be performed during a storm or while the roof is wet, flat roof repair is different from pitched roof repair because it can be done during the storm. Our roofing contractors will show up quickly to apply a special sealing compound to patch over the leak. This compound works even when the roof is wet and it will not interfere with more permanent repairs once the storm passes.
Never attempt emergency roof repairs on your own and never climb onto your roof when it is wet or during a storm. After all, you don't want to add a life insurance claim to a homeowner's insurance claim. Document the damages and losses in writing and with photos as soon as possible to speed your insurance claim.
If your roof has suffered major damage during a fire or storm or you have water leaking into your home, don't panic. Contact your insurance company right away then contact our roofing contractors to start on repairs. Don't delay; your insurance claim may be denied if you do not take steps to immediately prevent further damage by requesting emergency roof repairs.
