Addressing a leaky roof during storm season

Roof leaks occur in any weather. It, however, becomes a major emergency when the problem emerges while in the middle of a rainstorm. While it is always a good idea to call your roofing contractor to fix the issue, know that it’s possible that the crew may not get to your home immediately. Fortunately, there are some things you can do to reduce roof and home interior damage.

Korrect Roofing LLC, your local provider of complete roofing solutions, shares some steps on how you can address a leaking roof during a storm.

Deal with the Leak Inside Your Home

Roof leaks form through a small puddle in the attic and/or ceiling. It will try to find a way to escape, such as a light fixture or the ceiling’s corners and joints. Check for any bulges on your drywall or stained patches on your ceiling. Poke a hole to drain the water. Use a bucket or a garbage pail to collect water.

Also, try to move any valuables in your room away from where the water is dripping. That way, you protect them from potential moisture damage. Be sure to keep your flooring and carpeting dry by placing drop cloths or garbage bags on the floor.

Find the Source of the Leak

As you wait for the emergency roof leak repair pros to arrive, use the time you have to find the source of the leak. While it can be frustrating to deal with, doing this helps you mitigate potential damage to the other unaffected areas of your home.

Begin by locating the roof leak inside of your home. Be certain that the leak comes from the roof itself and not because of a problem with your plumbing, HVAC, or gutters. For this, you need to get up the attic. Examine every area, from the underside of the rafters, and sheathing, to the insulation. You may likely find an active leak given the continuous rain occurring outside.

Once we arrive, we’ll take steps to protect your property from further damage and prepare a plan to get your roof back to normal. Apart from roof repair, Korrect General Contracting, LLC also specializes in helping clients with their residential roof replacement options and ensuring proper ventilation.

Best roofing company in the Metroplex. Korrect worked with my insurance company to get a larger adjustment and make sure all the hail damage to my roof, gutters, and windows was repaired properly. All I had to pay was my deductible.
