An emergency roof repair plan is key to keeping your roof intact and in good condition throughout its lifespan. Having one is a must; otherwise, you not only delay crucial fixes but also put your roof’s structural integrity – and the safety of your household—at risk.
If you haven’t had a roof emergency action plan, now’s the right time to make one. Here’s what it should include:
1. Schedule of Inspections and Maintenance
A well-thought emergency action plan for your roof should include a regular inspection and maintenance schedule. A routine check helps to identify weak points on your roof and allows you to head off potential issues that might become worse. Taking on a proactive approach when it comes to your roof is crucial in avoiding frequent but costly repairs.
2. Initial Inspection
A roof emergency action plan should also include the initial inspection. This is usually a more meticulous and more thorough type of roof inspection, allowing roofers to identify and record everything that looks out of the ordinary. Every material and component of your roof is examined for your peace of mind.
3. Priority Repairs
If there are indeed deficiencies or signs of damage to your roof, the professionals will categorize them based on urgency. Some repairs are immediate, while others are deemed long-term. As a homeowner, it pays to focus on repairs that can be done right away.
4. Records of Emergency Work
Emergency work done on your roof should be well-documented. Images and videos must be taken before and after the repairs are completed. This way, you and your roofer can determine whether there are issues that might have been missed out.
