Your roof is leaking, and you aren’t sure what to do. Besides putting buckets under your dripping ceiling, there are several things you can do to remain proactive.
Proactive Steps To Take if Your Roof Leaks
First, contain the water coming into your home. Don’t plug the hole as that can just cause the water to back up behind your walls and above your ceiling is.
Second, if it’s safe to do so, cover your roof with a waterproof tarp. It’s important to securely fasten the tarp. You can use screws and tie-downs to help prevent the tarp from blowing away in a storm. Note that the tarp is a temporary fix until you can get a roofing company to repair or replace your roof.
Third, call your homeowner’s insurance company to find out if it covers roof damage. Many policies include roof protection and replacement in the event of a storm or other natural event. Insurance companies might not cover roof damage due to improper maintenance or regular wear and tear.
