Even a small roof leak can cause major damage to your home if it’s not properly addressed, so you need to be prepared. You need to act quickly to limit the damage while you wait for professionals to perform more permanent repairs. Tango & Gatti, the leading roofing company in our local area, explains more.
Move Furniture and Appliances
First, move or cover any appliances near the leak to prevent damage. You should also move furniture away from the area beneath the leaking ceiling. Do your best to keep the area as dry and possible to prevent anyone from slipping. Place a bucket underneath the leak.
Control the Dripping Water
You can control the flow of the dripping water if the leak is small enough. As a roof replacement expert, we suggest taping a piece of string near the puncture and setting this string into a bucket. The string will direct the water directly into the bucket, preventing the leak from spreading and causing even more damage. Do this for all the leaks you can find.
Perform Small Fixes
Your roof leak won’t be permanently fixed until a professional roofer can address it. Fortunately, you can control water seepage into your home by performing some small, preliminary fixes. You can use a rubber peel or pre-made stick patch to cover up the ceiling leak while you wait for your roofing contractor to arrive.
