Of course, the best way to avoid emergency repairs is to have Roof Pro Plus Home Improvements South come by and complete a full roof inspection. Preventing a problem before it starts is the key. Put your mind at ease. Call us for a no-cost, no obligation inspection of your roof and insulation. If your roof is in good shape, we’ll tell you. But if we see problems, we’ll take photos and document the problems and provide you with a detailed estimate for all necessary repairs.
The next step is to protect the interior of your home or business.
- Find something to collect the incoming water. A small pan, bucket or trashcan will work. Remember to empty them regularly.
- When possible, remove items such as papers, computers, furniture etc. from the area. Large items that cannot be moved should be covered in plastic. A plastic trash bag cut open or even a shower curtain will work.
- If you notice your ceiling starting to bubble, take a sharp item (screw driver or even a pencil will work) and poke a hole into it to release the water, this will prevent the ceiling from becoming worse or even falling.
- The final step is to take a deep breath and relax as best as possible. You are in the professional and experienced care of Roof Pro Plus Home Improvements South’s dedicated emergency response and service department.
Winter can be one of the most beautiful times of the year. But snow, ice and high winds can turn winter into a nightmare, especially if your roof is not up to the task. It’s difficult to get a good look at your roof from the ground and doing your own inspection is a dangerous undertaking – especially on a steep slope. Even new roofs are not always immune to winter’s ravages.
Broken or missing shingles, curling or buckling on shingle edges, and deteriorating flashings are just a few of the problems you might not be able to see. Also, inadequate insulation can lead to a host of problems, including ice build-up at the eaves during periods of rapid freezing and thawing. When signs of a leak become evident, the problem is often more extensive than we realize!
