Repairing Your Roof After Storm Damage
Preventing roof damage isn’t always possible, even if you invest in high-quality roofing materials and have them properly installed by a reputable local roofer.
Unfortunately, even the most durable roofs can experience damage, especially if exposed to a bad storm. It’s the main reason why Midwest Roofing offers emergency roof repair services.
What Type of Roof Damage Can a Storm Cause?
The following are some of the different types of roof damage a storm could cause:
- Missing or damaged shingles – High powered winds can rip the shingles right off of your roof. Shingles can also be damaged as a result of the impact caused by debris or hail.
- Water leaks – Storms can cause water leaks in a number of different ways. For example, the loss of shingles can leave your deck vulnerable to leaks. The flashing on your roof can be damaged or torn off leaving your roof more exposed to potential leaks. Finally, serious impact damage caused by flying debris or hail can puncture holes in your roof, thereby allowing rainwater to spill in.
- Significant roof damage – While flying debris can damage your roof in a number of ways, there are cases in which more significant damage can be done as a result of high-powered wind. For example, large tree branches or entire trees can collapse in on your roof, thereby causing serious structural damage.
What Does Emergency Roof Repair Services Entail?
Any kind of damage done to your roof which causes massive water infiltration is considered an emergency. You won’t want to wait long to have your roof repaired if it’s leaking water since this can lead to further damage. When you contact us for emergency repair service, we will send someone out to your home as soon as the storm subsides. Our roofing tech will inspect and address the damage. If we are unable to make immediate repairs, measures to prevent further damage will be taken, such as covering the damaged area of your roof with a tarp to prevent further leaks.
As for how long it will take to make repairs, this depends on the extent of the damage. If minor repairs need to be done, such as replacing broken shingles or flashing, it can be completed within a short period of time. Extensive damage, such as needing the entire roof replaced, will take longer.
