When you have a leaky roof, it is not just the roof that is suffering damage. As water seeps into your home, your framework and the entire structure becomes susceptible to water damage, mold, and mildew. If you need emergency roofing, follow these steps below to ensure minimal damage is experienced.
Re-Direct the Water
While you wait for the specialists to arrive, you want to do what you can to minimize the damage and redirect the water flowing into your home. You may need to use buckets to catch the drips or a tarp to protect that portion of your roof.
Understand the Risks
Water damage can be hazardous, especially if gone unnoticed. Water can destroy materials that have been in place since the time of construction, meaning your entire home may be at risk. Mold spores are also able to circulate through the air, making them a hazard for humans and other animals living in the house.
