Common causes of roofing emergencies

  • Delayed maintenance and natural wear due to weather and UV radiation
  • Fallen tree limbs
  • High winds tear off shingles and/or roof decking
  • Ice dams and ice buildup in valleys
  • Improper installation practices
  • Flashing failures at roof penetrations, including around chimneys, vent stacks, and dormers

Some roofing emergencies are preventable, but others are simply out of the homeowner’s control. Homeowners should always take care to have proper roof maintenance and practice preventative strategies like snow removal to prevent ice damming, but even in those cases a roofing emergency is a possibility.

 

Things to remember in a roofing emergency

In the case of a roofing emergency, make sure you remember these three points

  • Don't go up on the roof yourself: A damaged roof is a dangerous environment, and you should let a properly insured and equipped professional be the first to check it out.
  • Cover the interior: Using plastic sheeting will protect the interior of your home and help prevent leaks.
  • Inspect the roof visually: From the ground, take a visual inspection of your roof to note debris and possible damage.
