Restoration USA Tips: The Importance Of Emergency Roof Repair

by / Monday, 03 July 2017 / Published in Restoration USA Tips

Roofs are meant to keep the home safe. This keeps out water, debris and any other foreign objects. When a sudden trauma happens to a roof, the people inside and their property is likely in danger. In the event of a home emergency it is crucial to make a call before the structural problems branch out.

 

How do I know if I need emergency roof repair?

 

Weather tends to damage the structural integrity of roofs. High wind speeds tear roofing tiles and shingles off and expose substrate. Wind speeds can also knock off branches and even topple whole trees. Debris striking and falling on the house is never good. If this causes exposure to substrate or holes, thunderstorms become exponentially more fatal for the property. In the case that your home experiences these, it is important to seek help before problems occur.

 

What can happen when a roof is damaged?

When roofs are riddled with breaks and holes, a number of things can go wrong. Water can seep through even the smallest cracks. When water enters the home from a damaged roof, your insulation is the first thing to be compromised. Insulation can flatten and can begin to thin, creating less protection against heat. This could easily cause your home or business to become significantly hotter – an uncomfortable living or working environment.

 

Along with this, water will flow downward to your walls. With an excess amount of water, mold can thrive. If mold is present, there are many health risks that come into play. Illnesses such as rashes, itchy dry eyes, burning sensations in the throat, and as bad as pneumonia. As some people are allergic, where as others are not affected as much, risks are even higher. In the event that mold does start to grow, it is pertinent to stop the problem before it spreads.

 

Detecting a leak can be a real feat. Usually these can be seen from off color streaks on the walls, earthy smelling air, and obvious flooding. In order to get to the bottom of these problems, professionals are needed to solve the issue.

 

During storms, lightning is no stranger. If your home or business is struck in a vulnerable area fires can occur. If this happens, you and your belongings are in danger. Fires can be an end-all for your property and can cause headaches that you never imagined you’d be faced with just because of a little roof damage.
