Leaking Roof? You Need a Roof Tarp!
Is your roof leaking? Don’t wait for further damage to ensue! Call us now at (402) 464-2418 to take advantage of our professional roof tarp service!
There’s no scarier time for a homeowner than when the roof starts leaking. Major storms can cause major headaches, and once water starts getting into your home, you could be facing damages costing thousands and thousands of dollars. Roof leaks spring up from all kinds of sources: hail can destroy roofing materials, storm winds can tear shingles from your roof, flying debris can pierce holes in the roof, and heavy precipitation can build up and put excess weight on your roof deck.
Any time you encounter a big storm, you need to take a good look at your roof afterwards to assess any damage. Fortunately, stopping a leak in its tracks can be as simple as keeping the water off of your house altogether. All you have to do is call the Lincoln, NE roofing experts at Nelson Contracting to come and throw an emergency roof tarp over-top of your house.
How Emergency Roof Tarping Works
Tarps are highly effective at protecting your home and other property from the elements. They’re made from a canvas coated in water resistant plastic materials; water slides right off! So long as the tarp itself does not become damaged, you can count on it to keep your roof patched up for as long as three months.
All we have to do is get up on the roof, pull the tarp over it, and tie it down. You can read about how to tarp a roof on your own, but considering the hazards present when working on a rooftop, we strongly recommend you leave it to the professionals. Once the tarp is up, you can get to work cleaning up any damage inside the house that may have arisen from the leaky roof.
What About My Insurance Company?
Your insurance company will appreciate the steps you’re taking to limit the damage to your home. Keep records from your emergency roof tarp job, and your insurance company may be more likely to work with you when it comes time to submit a claim for a roof repair. In some cases, insurers may penalize you for failing to take preventative measures like tarping, and will use that negligence as an excuse to deny your claim. Don’t let yourself fall into this trap. Take any steps you can to demonstrate that you’re being responsible and proactive.
However, you’ll probably want to get the roof fixed quickly, anyways. Tarps don’t look very nice, and three months is a very long time for you to have a hole in your roof. This should be good enough motivation for you to get in touch with your neighborhood roofers at Nelson Contracting to come out and give your roof a thorough inspection and repair. Drop us a line to get a free estimate on a roof repair, after we’ve safely and securely tarped up your home.
Don’t settle for a fly-by-night storm chaser who just wants to take your money and run. We’ll give you a fair evaluation that you can trust, so you know you’re getting the right job done for the right price.
