Even the sturdiest roofs cannot avoid damage caused by strong storms, harsh ultraviolet (UV) rays, fallen trees and many more disasters. So, you should know what roof damage is considered an emergency.
- Missing Shingles
Shingles do a great job protecting the base layer of the roof from weathering elements.However, winds that exceed 50 miles per hour have enough force to tear shingles from the roof and expose the substrate.
Once a shingle gets torn and damaged, this could create a hole where water can get inside your home. A simple tearing of one shingle could cause a domino effect of destruction and put you in a position where you will be forced to look for emergency roof repair solutions.
- Damaged Gutters
The purpose of a gutter is to divert water away from your roof. If you notice that your gutter has scratches and holes, it is time to sound the siren and call for an emergency roof repair. Without a properly functioning gutter system, water can easily infiltrate your house, causing serious damage.
- Cracked Ceiling
A cracked ceiling almost always means that water began dripping from your roof into your house. In worse cases, wood rot happens. It can easily compromise the structural integrity of the roof, risking it to collapse under its own weight.
- Water Streaks and Drip Lines
Leaks do not always mean a huge amount of water is dripping down your walls and ceilings. Sometimes, they start as small stains that can go unnoticed. Once you detect water streaks and drip lines on your walls, urgently call for roofers as a preemptive measure. Most of the time, roof maintenance is the best answer to avoid emergency roof repairs.
