Well, you’re not the first.
Believe it or not, we’ve worked with a TON of homeowners experiencing a leaky roof.
And fortunately, it’s not the end of the world. Still, the longer it takes to fix the problem, the more water damage it’s going to do… so here are some recommendations for dealing with a leaky roof.
Contain The Water Damage — The first thing to do when discovering a leaky roof is try to contain as much of the ongoing water damage as possible. Use buckets and towels to avoid further damage and replace them as needed.
Remove The Water — Try to remove water where it’s pooled up. The longer that water sits on a surface, the more damage it’s going to cause in that area, so get rid of as much as possible.
Check With Your Insurance — Give your insurance agent a call to determine if you’re covered for water damage. If so, you can probably get insurance to pay for fixing any damages.
Fix The Roof — If you decide to keep your home, then fixing that roof is now top priority. You can hire someone else to do this, do it yourself, or try and get insurance to pay for it. If this step is a problem for you, then check out the final option.
