Emergency Roof Leak Repair for Residential Roofs
Repair Services When You Need Them
There might be nothing worse than seeing water trickling from your ceiling in the midst of a storm. Within a short span of time, water can quickly spread to areas outside of the main leak, affecting everything from your roof supports to insulation to the electrical system. It can also ruin personal belongings as well as the walls and flooring.
Yet during a heavy storm, you can’t exactly climb up onto your roof and fix the leak – in fact, you shouldn’t even try it. Wet, slippery ladders increase the chances of personal injury, and you might do further damage to your roof if you walk on it.
You should, however, place a bucket or pot under leak, and a tarp under those items to prevent water from causing your floor to buckle or soften. Next, you should immediately call a local roofing company for emergency roof leak repair. Fields Roof Service can tarp over the area immediately after the storm and diagnose and repair the problem to prevent more issues.
The Problem With a Small Roof Leak
If a leak isn’t fixed right away, water can gradually start to soften wood components of your home, causing studs and supports to fail. If the water is collecting on your ceiling, it may eventually collapse. Insulation will start clumping, negatively affecting how well it can insulate your home. Even if none of these events happen, the presence of moisture can cause mold and mildew to grow, which can negatively affect your family’s health.
