Roof leaks are a problem in any weather🌨️⛈️🌪️, but a roof that starts to leak during a heavy rainstorm can quickly turn into a major emergency. Unfortunately, rainy weather is when a roof leak is most likely to happen–and when roofers become inundated with calls from panicked homeowners.
,😒Your roof is leaking and you’ve contacted📞 a roofer for help, but if they can’t get there immediately there are some things you can do to to minimize the damage to your home’s interior as well as the roof. And since roofing companies often charge extra for emergency calls, you doing work ahead of time may save you money on your repair bill.💵💵💵

📌The first thing you want to do, is deal with the leak inside your house so you can minimize interior damage.

📌Most of the time, a roof leak will form a small puddle in the attic and/or ceiling until it finds an escape route–usually something like a light fixture or heating register. Ceiling joints or corners are other spots where leaks will often occur. Sometimes these leaks happen in multiple places from one source, making it look much worse than it usually is.

📌If the ceiling is holding water or you see a bulge in the drywall, poke☝️ a hole in the center with a screwdriver or other similar object in the middle of it. This will drain water to that one spot, which will help lessen the damage to the ceiling and help collect the water into one stream.

📌If you have time beforehand, move any articles in the room that could be damaged by moisture off of the ground or into a different room. You may also want to put down drop cloths, garbage bags or tarp on the floor to make sure that carpeting and flooring stay dry as well.

🤔Find the Source of the Roof Leak

Finding the source of the leak can be extremely frustrating, but if you don’t find the source of the leak, any repairs or temporary fixes you do are going to be useless. Water can travel far from the original source and cause damage elsewhere.

Start by locating the roof leak on the inside of your house. You want to make sure that the source of the leak is the roof and not due to a problem in other parts of your house. Some of the culprits for household leaks include plumbing, heating and cooling units, condensations, pest infestation or even clogged gutters.

👷‍♂️On the Roof

Wait for the rain to let up before you attempt to go on the roof. Exercise extreme caution when going on the roof. Don’t attempt to access the roof without taking adequate safety precautions.

Wear rubber-soled shoes and secure the ladder to the siding or the fascia with ropes to prevent it from being blown by wind.

Tarp is a quick and easy temporary solution until your roofer arrives.

⚒️Prevention

Often, leaks
rain gutter with leavesare caused by not doing preventative maintenance on your roof.

Many roofs are filled with places that will leak only when water is not allowed to properly flow. This is very common on pitched roofs at inside corners.

Any blockage can cause a leak, especially those in gutters or a downspout.

Clearing leaves and debris and allowing water to flow normally can immediately make a leak go away.

👷‍♂️If you are experiencing a roof leak, follow the steps⚒️☝️👌 above to minimize your damage, then give as a call at 7013299659🧐 for leak repair or replacement of your roof.
