EMERGENCY ROOF TARPING IN SWFL

Table of Contents

Emergency Roof tarping in Florida is very common. Florida has the most unpredictable weather in the country. Southwest Florida homeowners face more storm and hurricane threats than residents of any other state. Heavy rain, storms, hurricanes and other emergencies may lead to a damaged roof. This is why we have put together a list of everything you need to know about emergency roof tarping.

WHAT IS EMERGENCY ROOF TARPING?

Roofs can be tough to repair under the best of circumstances, but even tougher during high winds, heavy rain, or an emergency. Emergency roof tarping is a temporary solution to prevent secondary damage to your roof until it can be thoroughly inspected and repaired. If you suspect that your roof has succumbed to damage from a recent storm or accident, Massey Roofing will provide you with emergency roof tarping services.

WHEN IS EMERGENCY ROOF TARPING NEEDED?

There are a number of situations in which emergency roof tarping may be needed. Hurricanes and high winds can rip your roof shingles off, leaving the wood sheathing exposed to the wet weather. In situations such as these, emergency roof tarping is often necessary. In what situations does emergency roof tarping apply? First, Any type of damage that allows water infiltration should be either repaired immediately or tarped until the problem can be resolved.

The installation of roof tarping services can prevent further damage to your roof after severe weather events, fires, or animals. Tree limbs can be torn off trees, penetrating the surface of the roof. Squirrels and raccoons can chew their way through rotted wood, creating holes in the roof. Fire can quickly penetrate every layer of the roof leaving behind substantial damage that affects the stability and safety of the structure. Having a roofing contractor patch the roof temporarily if you are unable to repair such damage immediately can save you time and money in the long run.

Roof tarping can be accomplished in a timely manner when a hurricane lets up, allowing workers to remain safe without causing more harm to the home. Emergency roof tarping is also a common occurrence after a house fire. As the structure of the roof may be compromised, contractors can create a watertight barrier until the structural integrity of the roof can be more closely examined.

THE EMERGENCY ROOF TARPING PROCESS

Emergency roof tarping involves a series of critical steps to ensure that the damage is well-protected. First, we begin with a full examination of the damage, then clear the area of debris. Then we determine the correct size of the damaged area to buy the correct size tarp, prepare and position the Tarp. The roof tarp must be secured and weighed down so that it won’t come loose in windy or stormy conditions. Then we secure the roof tarp to prevent flapping, water seepage and debris from entering the damaged area. Emergency tarping is used to prevent any further damage but should only be used in the event that a permanent remedy cannot be accomplished quickly.

CONSEQUENCES OF AVOIDING EMERGENCY ROOF TARPING

You may be wondering what the consequences are of not investing in emergency roof tarping. Without a layer of protection between your roof and the elements, your home is at risk for further damage. Minor roof damage, such as a loose or missing shingle, can quickly become a larger, most costly problem if left unfixed.
Water damage can also occur without a tarp. When water is allowed to seep through your damaged roof, the moisture can damage insulation, stain walls and ceilings, and cause mold to grow. If water collects on an old or damaged roof, the structure is also at risk for collapsing.

We are lucky to have our roof installation from Massey Construction Group three years ago. When Hurricane Ian hit us, my husband contacted their team and scheduled a roof inspection immediately. I was pleasantly surprised the roof did not sustained any damage from Hurricane Ian. I recommend this local company that recently won roof of the year.
