A damaged roof is not something to ignore. All it takes is one storm to do significantly more damage. What to do if my roof is damaged? Here are a few things to consider to solve the issue.
Do your own troubleshooting
Even if you have no idea how to fix a roof, there is an opportunity to do some troubleshooting on your own. Sometimes, roof damage is extremely obvious, but smaller damage and leaks are at times difficult to find.
The biggest sign that there is something minor wrong with the roof is water stains. It doesn’t take much water to do damage, and stains become pretty apparent in attics, on ceilings and more.
Temporarily fix what you can
Depending on the type of roof damage, sometimes people need to get a little creative before the roof is properly fixed. That could be something as simple as putting a bucket underneath a leak to catch the following water. Perhaps some minor patchwork can hold things together as well.
Obviously, this is never a permanent fix, but it helps to cut down on further damage. Emergency repairs are always available to people, but water damage can start to add up in a hurry.
Talk to an insurance agent
Not all damage to a roof is covered by insurance. It is still always worth talking to an insurance agent to see if they can help. If the roof is damaged in part because of faulty installation, there is a chance for possible compensation.
