My Roof Is Leaking, Now What?

Storms can cause a lot of damage to your roof. It can cause it to leak.

When you noticed your roof is leaking, you must have rushed to call a professional. 

A skilled roofing specialist will examine the roof both from the outside of the roof itself and from the interior of your house, normally from the attic. Inspecting the underside of the roof displays signs of damage to the water, but it is not a foolproof solution so that damage to the roof is still needed.

It’s quite easy to spot if your roof is leaking. You can first see or hear drops of water falling, or you may find a dark spot on the ceiling. This doesn’t mean that it’s time to panic, but you can act quickly to mitigate the damage. 

First Thing To Do

The very first thing you ought to do is put a bucket under the leak to keep water from destroying your foundation. If you are infuriated by the dripping sound, you should put a small wooden board over the bucket so that the water drips quietly.

When you notice even the slightest bit of a leak, you shouldn’t waste much time. 

When your roof is leaking, it is necessary to respond rapidly. Leaky roofs don’t patch themselves or get better on their own. 

Get it patched right now. Sometimes we hear from homeowners that they’ve seen a spot on their ceiling, or maybe any bubbling for a bit, but they didn’t think it was severe. Avoidance and denial are not going to repair a hole in the roof. 

The National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA) advises that you check your roof twice a year, in the autumn and in the spring. 

How To Handle a Leak

Like All Problems, Find the Source 

If you can enter the attic, go into it and search for big holes, trousers, or noticeable losses. If no obvious hole is there, look where water pours in, but remember that it can also cover the original hole. The opening may be outside, because the roof is sloped, and the water may have drained downwards before you enter. Enable experts to take a look at the exterior of your roof to prevent the risk of injury or damage.

Contain the Water Pressure  

Place a bucket or other waterproof container directly under the leak(s) to catch the water. If water splashes on the floors, place an old T-shirt at the bottom of the bucket for the absorption of the splash and pin the long string onto the roof next to the spill. 

When the paint bursts, it would typically retain water so that you punch the bubble to expel the water. If you can’t contain or regulate water, you have the time to contact a licensed roofing contractor; many provide emergency assistance 24 hours a day.

Now that you’re at it, continue on drying the other pieces of furniture and parts of the house that have been wet or flooded. This is also to protect the different materials of the furniture from further deterioration because of the moisture. 

Call A Professional

As mentioned, there are roofing contractors available at your disposal immediately to help you when your roof is leaking. Time is of the essence when it comes to fixing leaks to avoid the water going into the exterior part of your home and ruin all your flooring, walls, electrics, and pieces of furniture. 

When you wait long to fix your roofing, it may destroy your roof completely because of all the heavy water it’s carrying. 

Conclusion

First thing’s first, when you notice a leak, don’t panic. Follow these tips, and don’t forget to call Quality Discount Roofing and Construction while you remedy the water pressure and dry up your floors and walls!

Remember, the best thing to do to avoid leakage is to prepare for it, and to never underestimate roofing maintenance.
