Common Causes Of Roofing Emergencies
- Delayed maintenance
- Natural wear due to weather and UV rays
- Fallen tree limbs
- High winds that tear off tiles, shingles and/or roof decking
- A tropical storm or hurricane
- Improper roofing installation practices
- Flashing failures at roof penetrations, including lead pipes, goosenecks and ridge vents.
Some roof repairs are preventable, but others are simply out of the homeowner’s control. Either way, we know that a fast response is important.
We recommend that homeowners and commercial building owners always have proper roof maintenance and preventative strategies in place to avoid an emergency roofing repair if at all possible. To learn more about best practices for your roof, schedule a free inspection today.

Things To Remember In A Roofing Emergency
If you’re faced with water damage or an emergency roof leak repair, here are three tips to follow:
Don’t go up on the roof yourself
We know that for many homeowners, it’s important to assess damage after a storm. But the truth is, a damaged roof is a dangerous environment. And often, the obvious repair is not the full extent of the damage. Unseen damage can become dangerous quickly so let a professional be the first to check it out. The last thing your family needs after an emergency is for anyone to get hurt. Call a roofing contractor that can complete a roof repair and stay safe.
Identify damage, patch leak and call for help
If your roof has been damaged by weather events, it’s unlikely that you can permanently fix leaks from the inside. However, you may be able to see water spots inside and identify where the damage is coming from. If you’re unable to get help immediately, you may be able to create a temporary patch and seal the leak. You can also use a tarp or buckets until a roofing contractor arrives. We recommend calling our Allstate team who is ready to make emergency repairs at a moment’s notice. Even if you’re able to patch the leak from inside, additional damage may continue, resulting in more expensive repairs down the line.
Cover the interior
Often in Florida, we know that a storm can bring a ton of water with it. One of the quickest ways to protect your valuable property inside your home is to cover your items with plastic sheeting while you wait for a roof repair. This is especially true if you plan to vacate the property at any time before your repair is complete because if more water gets in, you won’t be there to stop it.
To make it easy, you can move your belongings into the center of each room or area and cover it with a single tarp or plastic sheet. Make sure you don’t use blankets or other materials that aren’t water-proof. You can find tarps and plastic sheeting at your local Home Depot or Lowes and use them as needed for protection while you wait for a repair.
Inspect the roof visually
If you can do so safely, step outside and walk around your property. Always be careful of any downed trees, power lines, etc. The most important thing is your safety so if you can’t complete an inspection from the ground, that is ok. If you can walk around your property safely, take a visual inspection of your roof to note debris and possible damage. Take pictures or notes and save them for when you meet with your roofing contractor to begin discussing your roof repair. This may be helpful for your insurance claim as well.
