WHAT YOU CAN DO WHILE WAITING FOR YOUR ROOFER

Immediate roof repairs of a leaky roof will help in preventing water damage from spreading. When not addressed, water can damage your ceilings, floorings and electronics. There are measures you can do while waiting for the roofing company you hired.

For small leaks, grab a piece of string, tape it near the hole, and place a bucket under it. The string will bring the water into the bucket and prevent it from doing more damage. Repeat the procedure for other leaks.

Cover or move your appliances to prevent fires and electrocution. Do the same to your furniture and keep the affected area as dry as possible to prevent accidents. You can’t predict when the weather will go bad again so it’s a good idea to cover the roof with a tarp. It would prevent water from entering your home in case it rains.
