Why Swift Action Matters in Roof Damage Situations


Imagine this scene: You’re home, enjoying a quiet evening when you suddenly notice water dripping from your ceiling. Panic sets in as you realize that your roof is damaged, and you’re now facing an emergency. What do you do? 

The answer is simple: call us for emergency roofing in Pearland, TX. No matter how you discover that your roof has damage, it’s vital that you don’t delay calling professional roofing contractors to repair it. Below, we’ll explain why swift action and working with professional roofing contractors is essential.

Why Swift Action is Critical

Roof damage can take various forms, including missing shingles, leaks, or storm damage from high winds and hail stones. These issues can lead to a host of problems if they’re not quickly repaired. These problems include severe structural issues, water infiltrating the roof deck, and mold growth. The troubles can even extend farther into your home, damaging the rest of the property and even affecting your family’s health. Getting repairs done as soon as possible stops numerous problems before they can begin. 

The most immediate risk of a damaged roof is water infiltration. Water that seeps into your roof will damage it and shorten its lifespan so you’ll need to have it replaced years too early. But that water infiltration can also damage walls, ceiling, and electrical systems. You’ll find yourself with large repair bills and even safety hazards. (You don’t want your electrical system getting wet!)

The longer you wait, the more you’ll face escalating problems. For example, a minor leak can turn into a massive hole, and missing shingles can lead to structural damage affecting the roof deck (the wooden structure that supports the roof). We know of cases where delays with repairs cause a portion of the roof to collapse. That’s not only an expensive repair, it could hurt someone.

Working With Professional Roofing Contractors

Some homeowners feel tempted to get up on the roof to see if they can fix what looks like a “minor” problem (such as a cracked shingle) themselves. Please don’t try to repair your roof on your own!
