No one likes to think about it, but sometimes, emergencies happen. We’re here to guide you through the steps to take in case of roofing emergencies in 2023. This helpful advice comes to you from Maven Roofing, your trusted partner for all your roofing needs.
- Safety First
In any roofing emergency, safety should be your top priority. If you suspect a dangerous situation, such as a sagging roof or electrical hazards, evacuate your home immediately and call 911.
- Assess the Damage
Once it’s safe to do so, assess the extent of the damage to your roof. Look for visible signs of trouble, like missing shingles, leaks, or exposed areas. If you’re unsure about the damage, it’s time to contact Maven Roofing for a professional assessment.
- Temporary Solutions
If you can safely address the issue temporarily, do so. Here are some common emergency scenarios and what you can do:
– Leaking Roof: Place buckets or containers to collect water and prevent further interior damage. Use a tarp or heavy-duty plastic sheeting to cover the affected area temporarily.
– Missing Shingles: If shingles are missing, use a piece of plywood to cover the gap and secure it with bricks or heavy objects to prevent further damage until professionals arrive.
