One minute everything is fine, the next minute there is water pouring into your house.

Whether it was caused by inclement weather, an animal or a tree falling on your home, you need to get your roof fixed fast if you want to avoid further damage. There are a number of different signs of an emergency, some obvious, some not so obvious.

Water leaking into the house, holes in the roof, missing shingles, fire damage, fallen tree limbs all constitute a roof emergency.

A roofing emergency occurs when the integrity of your roof is compromised and the outside weather starts making its way into your home. The best thing you can is not waste time and call a roofing specialist to assess the damages. Once the assessment is completed then the repair strategy can be discussed and put into action to avoid further damages to your home.
