Living in Wisconsin means we’re no stranger to severe weather. We get all the weather here - from blizzards and ice storms in the winter to heat waves, tornadoes, and thunderstorms in the summer. When the storms roll in, they can bring high winds and heavy rains which can cause serious damage to your home, especially your roof. If you experience damage to your roof after a storm, it is vital to call for emergency roof repair services as soon as possible.
Waiting too long can lead to even more expensive repairs down the road, and end up causing additional damage inside your home. In these cases, it is important to know who to call for your emergency roof repair.
The first thing you need to do is assess the damage. If your roof was damaged by wind, there will be signs on the outside like pieces of shingles in the yard. If heavy rain was the culprit, you may see water spots on your ceiling or water dripping from your gutters. Once you identify there is damage, it's time to call a professional roof repair company.
Some may try to fix the damage themselves, but unless you have roofing experience, this is not recommended. Roofing repairs are best left to professionals who have the experience and expertise to get the job done right. In addition, they will have the proper tools and safety equipment.
Trying to repair your roof on your own could result in further damage, and put you at risk for injury.
The type of damage your roof sustains will depend on the severity of the storm. High winds can cause shingles to be torn off or lifted, leaving your roof vulnerable to water damage. If left unrepaired, this can lead to leaks and other serious issues inside your home. A really strong wind can topple trees and send them crashing through your roof!
Heavy rains can also cause problems, such as leaks if there are any cracks or holes in your roof. Gutters full of debris can cause water to back up under the
shingles and seep into your home, causing damage to your ceilings and walls.
