What To Do In A Roof Leak Emergency

During the colder months, including December, your roofing system can be prone to a leak caused by heavy rains or even hail storms. In one of these situations, your damaged roofing system on your commercial or industrial building can severely affect the stability of your operation. A roof leak emergency calls for drastic measures. Fortunately, our team at Just Leaks offers 24-hour emergency roof leak service.

Before we arrive at our operation, there are several things you can do to prolong and protect your building from any further damage:

  • Take cover. To ensure your precious items are minimally damaged, cover them up or move them out of the way as quickly as possible.
  • Try and catch water. Use towels and old newspapers to soak up any water emerging from the leak. For heavier leaks, you can utilize trash bins.
  • Alleviate heavy water pressure. If you see a bulge in your ceiling, it could be possibly a large pooling of water. It’s much easier to repair one hole in your ceiling, compared to several, so while being very careful, you can poke a hole in the bulge to release the build-up of water. Make sure you have a large container handy to catch all the water.
  • Contact a professional as soon as possible. To put it simply, you can’t mess around with roof leaks. Contact capable roofings experts to fix the problem, so you and your operation are not comprised.

With our 24-hour emergency roof leak service, we recognize how vital your roofing system is the overall success of your business. Upon arrival, we will quickly assess the situation and perform the necessary repairs. Also, in order to prevent a roof leak emergency, we recommend proactive maintenance of your roofing system on your commercial or industrial building. This way, we can spot and repair areas of weakness in your roof. To make sure your commercial or industrial roof is ready for those December showers, call Just Leaks at (408) 249-4646.
