Cleveland is a lovely area of the country and the residents have the pleasure of experiencing the four seasons at their peak. The summer months are filled with humid, warm weather while the winters are chilly, snowy, and cold. How pleasant to experience each season in its fullness!
Many times those seasons also come with devastating storms. What can be done when the storms of nature create damage to a roof? Here are some key steps to take.
First and foremost, make sure you and your family are safe. This is of top priority. This goes for any type of weather disaster, whether large or small. If damage has occurred, stay away from downed power lines, never use an electrical device if there is excessive floodwater present, and use caution around damaged buildings. Always take an assessment of the area thoroughly before exiting the home.
Assess the Damage to Your Roof
Regardless of how sturdy a roofing system is, it just can’t compete with some of the major storms that present themselves. Take as many pictures as you can of your roof when conditions are appropriate. If you are able, get a video as well. It is better to have more pictures and videos than not enough.
Make Temporary Fixes
Is there water leaking into your kitchen from holes in the roof? If your home is not flooded, place five-gallon buckets, pails, or pots under the dripping water to collect it and eliminate more damage by leaking water. If there is minimal shingle damage, then a tarp can possibly be placed over the area until it can be repaired properly.
Contact Your Local Roofing Contractor
Always trust a local company to assist you with repairs after a storm. Avoid placing your trust, and money, in fly-by-night, storm-chasing roofing companies. Unfortunately, they tend to prey on the devastated, and don’t deliver product material and service as a local contractor will. If anything goes wrong with the roof after the installation, the storm chasers have already left town and can’t be reached. A local roofing company in Cleveland can quickly come and assess the situation and resolve any complications.
