Roof contractors are busier at these times as it a lot of people realize that their roof is leaking and they need to fix it fast! Nothing like a lot of rain to push people to fix their roofs.
During and after storms are not the best time to need a roof contractor, especially when time is of the essence, as it can take days or weeks to get a roof contractor out. In the event of a roof emergency, this can be catastrophic.
Having an existing roof problem during a storm can compound the problem As older, smaller, neglected leaks become major issues and spread throughout the home!
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” they say. In the case of keeping your roof and home intact, this advice is relevant today as it was in Benjamin Franklin’s day.
If you keep up with roof maintenance (at least once a year for homeowners, twice a year for commercial) you likely are already prepared. If not, it’s never too late to start a good roof maintenance plan but get the full inspection sooner rather than later.
Know how your roof will fare against even the worst weather, by contacting your local roof contractor for a full roof inspection. Get second and third opinions and fix any problems found immediately.
Storms can catch people by surprise, be proactive and avoid disaster by having your roof regularly inspected and properly maintained.
Finally, DO YOUR HOMEWORK! Watch out for “storm chasers”. If your caught in the storm, protect yourself from scams when looking for a roof contractor. Dealing with a tarp for a couple of days is much better than dealing with a bad roof job.
