Your Roof Has a Leak. Now What?

As a homeowner or business owner in Phoenix, you understand the importance of safeguarding your property against the elements. However, when faced with the unexpected challenge of a roof leak, swift action is crucial to prevent further damage and costly repairs.

Protecting Your Home During a Roof Leak

If severe roof damage occurs at your home or business, it’s important to act quickly to prevent water and debris from getting inside the structure. Prompt response to this issue can ensure damage does not spread and that you are not stuck with a huge repair bill for other items beyond the roof damage.

Even with an emergency roofing team on the way, there are some things you can do to help protect your home from a roof leak. Be sure to do the following:

  • Collect Incoming Water: Find a container to help you collect any water leaking from outside. A pan, bucket, or trash can do this job just fine. Be sure to empty any containers as they get full.
  • Remove Important Items: Move any items that could be damaged by water. This includes important paper documents, computers, electronics, furniture, rugs, and other items. You can also try to cover these items in plastic for protection.
  • Pop Any Bubbles that Form on the Ceiling: If you notice any bubbles in the ceiling, poke a small hole to release the water. This will prevent more extensive damage to your ceiling, which will help save money on repair costs.

Avoiding Roof Leaks

Obviously, accidents happen. But the best way to avoid roof leaks is to schedule regular maintenance on your Arizona home or business. Over time, shingles can fall off, exposing the rest of your roof to weather damage like rain, hail, and strong winds. If left untreated, you may have to call us down the line for more complicated repairs. Avoid costly emergency repairs by scheduling our expert team to conduct yearly maintenance on your roof. We guarantee a longer-lasting and sturdier roof with our assistance. Don’t wait until disaster strikes to call us. Preventative roof maintenance can go a long way for both your wallet and your peace of mind.

When to Seek Professional Help For Your Roof Leak

Most homeowners and business owners don’t know how damaging a leaking roof can be for their home or office.
