Emergency Flat Roof Repairs

Flat roofs, while less susceptible to tree damage, are vulnerable to water damage. During heavy rain storms, leaves and other debris may collect in gutters causing blockages.

The Dangers of DIY

Attempting emergency roofing repairs yourself could be extremely dangerous, especially if the damage is severe and due to fire. Structural instability of the roof could result in bad falls and significant injury. Attempting roof repairs in continued bad weather can also be extremely dangerous especially during lightning storms. Always consult the professionals before attempting DIY.

Proper Tarp Placement

Though we don''t recommend a DIY approach, if you’re comfortable with placing a tarp on your roof, this can prevent further water damage from impacting the structure of your home. It’s not a permanent solution by any means; in fact, you can think of it as a temporary bandage designed to stop further water infiltration. To do it, you’ll need tarp, measuring tape, a utility knife, some heavy boards, a saw, a staple gun, and some nails. The goal is to wrap the ends of the tarp around the heavy boards, then drape the tarp over the damaged part of your roof. The weight of the boards will hold the tarp in place tightly, which should allow any further rain to simply run off. Please keep in mind that this can be a dangerous task, and if you do not feel comfortable doing it, an emergency roofing contractor can help you place a tarp. Never attempt to tarp your roof while it is windy, lightning, or raining as these conditions only add to the danger.
