Would you know what to do if a tree fell on your roof, or your roof was damaged by hail or strong winds?  Here’s a quick step-by-step guide for homeowners during an emergency.

  1. Don’t panic. Contact your insurance provider and a professional roofing contractor.

  2. If the damage happens in the middle of a storm, the roofing contractor will wait until the storm is over before jumping into action.

  3. Roofers may place an emergency tarp over damaged roofing areas to protect the roof until a more permanent repair is made.

  4. Take your time to consider repair or replacement options, once the contractor has secured the roof from further damage.

  5. Don’t attempt to repair the roof on your own. It is too dangerous. Call a professional.
