Let’s imagine an unfortunate scenario. You get home late after a long day at the office, it’s been raining for a few days but you don’t think anything of it until you walk in your front door and find a giant bubble of water nestled in your paint. You head up to the attic to investigate and sure enough, you have a roof leak that’s letting water all over your attic and into your home. So, what do you do now? You need to pick up the phone and call on an emergency roofer.
So, what is an emergency roofer, and what makes them different than the roofer you use? Let’s review how an emergency roofer can help you out in times of roof troubles.
What Does an Emergency Roofer Do?
An emergency roofer is like any other roofer, except that they have a part of their business dedicated to helping consumers when they’re facing tough roofing issues such as leaks, ripped off shingles, and other timely issues.
Emergency roofers are on call 24/7 so no matter what time you call, someone will be able to come out to the property to assist in patching a bad leak, get a storm cap back on, patch a broken skylight, and other issues that need addressing immediately.
Finding an Emergency Roofer
You don’t want to be scrambling to find an emergency roofer in the middle of the night after your roof has been turned into a colander, so it’s best to have the contact information handy always and posted somewhere convenient like your fridge.
Ask your regular roofer if they are on call for emergency roofing situations if they are you can stick with your regular roofer, but if they only operate during regular business hours, you need someone else who will be able to take of your emergency roofing issues around the clock.
Look for your emergency roofer like you would any other service, make sure the company is local, established, and has good reviews. After one repair, you may even like your emergency roofer enough to make them into your full-time roofer.
It’s never fun when something goes wrong on our home’s roofs, but an emergency roofer can diagnose and fix the issues when your something goes wrong on your roof. Always have the contact information for an emergency roofer posted on your fridge and ready for any emergency.
