What to Do When Your Roof Starts Leaking

There’s never a convenient time for your roof to spring a leak. No one ever wants to have water leaking from the ceiling, especially if you have visitors in your home. Fortunately, there’s something you can do to mitigate the damage and, most importantly, prevent future leaks. Here are four tips of what to do when you’re facing roof leaks:

  1. Minimize the Water Damage

Take your time to walk around your home to check for leaks and cover everything that’s being damaged by the water. This is one of the most important things to do to protect your furniture, electronics, and other valuables. The sooner you spot the leak, the more chances you have to move your goods before they’re impacted by water. 

  1. Cover the Leak

Once you spot the leak, you must contain the water immediately. Put a bucket or any other waterproof container beneath the leak to catch the water. If water still splashes onto the floor, put an old piece of clothing in the bottom of the bucket to absorb the splash. 

  1. Clean the Space

Now that the leak is under control, it’s time to remove the water by drying all the carpets, furniture, and anything else that was exposed to water. By cleaning the space you’re preventing mold formation and stains.

  1. Hire a Roofing Specialist 

The best way to fix those annoying leaks and prevent future inconveniences is to hire a professional roofer who has vast experience in delivering efficient roof repair. Hiring a roofing specialist will ensure the longevity of your roof and give you the peace of mind that your house is well protected. Make sure to choose the right roofing contractor by using the following tips:

 

  • Make sure your contractor has the proper certifications and license.
  • Get recommendations from your neighborhood or quotes from different companies. 
  • Ask about the guarantee and expected life of your roof.
  • Make sure your contractor agrees to the municipal inspection before the work is considered complete.
