No homeowner wants to deal with roofing issues, especially if they occur out of the blue or are caused by storms. Unfortunately, there are times when they can’t be avoided so, you’re left with a damaged roof. Before you get stressed out too much, however, it’s still possible for you to get your roofing issue under control.
In this post, the residential roof repair NC Rebuild, Inc. discusses what you can do in the event of roofing emergencies.
Just because the storm in your area has passed, doesn’t mean you can get your roof repaired immediately. However, all hope isn’t lost, as you can still do some damage control on your roof. This is done through the practice of tarping, which mitigates any further damage to your roof. By applying a tarp to your roof, you can further protect the system from any moisture or wind damage.
As much as possible, avoid DIY-ing the application of a tarp on your roof; not only is it a difficult task that has a large margin of error but a hazardous one as well. With that in mind, make sure to call a trusted roofing contractor like NC Rebuild, Inc. to get the job done.
Call Insurance Provider
Once the storm is over, make sure to call your insurance provider and report the damage to the roofing system. By doing so, not only will you be able to curb the costs on tarping your roof until it’s completely repaired but they may also help you cover or regain the costs of any repairs or replacements needed to bring your roof back to top form.
