As your home’s first line of defense, you can expect your roofing system to sustain some damage every now and then. Often, these include holes, leaks or even clogged gutters–issues that can easily be fixed with the aid of a professional. Unfortunately, at some point, it’s possible that you may experience a roofing issue so severe that expert roofers will classify them as emergencies.
Roofing and siding expert Sunrise Exteriors discuss these roofing problems below:
If you have trees in your property, it can easily improve the overall look and value of your home. However, if it’s more than a few decades old, a strong storm can easily knock it down and fall on your roof, especially if it’s poorly supported and experiencing wood rot. Once it falls on the roof, you can expect a significant amount of damage to the system, resulting in a roofing emergency that should be handled as soon as possible.
Even if you have designer shingles attached to your home, you can’t avoid the occasional shingle blow off, especially if your area is prone to windy conditions. However, while a few missing shingles may sound like a minor problem, shingle blow off can usually leave you and your home vulnerable to excessive leaks and as such, it’s usually considered a roofing emergency.
Finally, if water is pooling in certain areas of your roof, contact a roofing professional to help you handle this emergency as soon as possible. This is because not only could this cause your roof to leak but the unnecessary weight it creates may also cause large portions of your home’s roofing system to eventually collapse if left unattended for too long.
