There are a variety of things that can trigger the need for emergency roof repair. It is your job to act quickly as soon as you notice damage to your roof, including missing shingles, leaks and fallen tree limbs. Below are some of the most common causes for needing emergency roofing repair.
Roof Hailstorm Damage
Among the most damaging forces to a home’s roof is hail. Here in North Alabama hail occurs within almost every severe thunderstorm in the Spring and Fall. When the weather gets severe in your area, you may have to deal with hail ranging in size from pea sized hail (1/4 inch) to marble sized hail (1/2 inch) and even possibly golf ball sized (1 3/4 inches) to softball-sized hail (up to 4 1/2 inches). If there is or has been hail in your area, it can slam through portions of the roof or at the very least crack some of your shingles and damage pipe boots, chimney flashing and gutters. The best thing you can do after a serious hailstorm is contact the trusted roofers at River City Roofing Solutions for a FREE inspection of your roof. If there is damage to your roof our licensed professional inspector will assist you with starting the insurance claims process. If there is no damage your roof the inspector will show you that as well.
Roof Wind Damage
Along with damaging hail, thunderstorms can produce strong winds causing you to need emergency roofing repair services. At the least, high winds can cause “wind-lifted” shingles that need to be nailed down and resealed back onto the roofing of your home. These may not be visually apparent from the ground, but nonetheless the shingles will reveal creases, bends and tears upon inspection. You may also find yourself with missing or damaged shingles. If your roof is older, then your shingles will likely be brittle and more likely to get blown off during these high wind situations. If your shingles are blown off, you will need to get them replaced immediately to avoid water leaking into your home. If you have experienced high winds in your area, call our 24/7 customer support line at 256-274-8530 to schedule one of our trained roof inspectors to assess if any damage has occurred.
Falling Trees and Limbs
High winds in storms can also result in trees being uprooted or broken limbs falling on the roof of your home creating serious damage. To avoid potential damage, trees should be trimmed back away from your roof as much as possible and large trees that threaten your home should be removed. Call us immediately if you have fallen trees or limbs on your roof for a free roof inspection.
