Fallen tree on roof by storm damage on a Spring Valley Village, TX home

It isn't always possible to call the professionals right away to deal with a roof leak in Spring Valley Village, TX. Even small problems, such as missing shingles, can lead to a more severely damaged roof in the future. A single weak spot in a roof can expand, causing:

  • Interior damage
  • Further shingle loss
  • Leaky roofs

Here are some of the first steps that professionals take when they clean up leaks. Once you read through these, you'll be able to easily see why it's best to address your problems as early as possible.

Extraction Stage

The very first thing that happens is that repair crews will go up on your roof and tear out all of the wet materials. There are many layers in a roof, and a roof leak doesn't have to permeate all of them to create damage. That means you may not even see drips inside of your facility. The longer you let small holes sit, the more chance water has to permeate the intermediate layers of your roof. This could contribute to mold growth, pest infestations and it can add to the weight of your roof, causing sagging and other structural problems. The extraction part of the job involves searching for wet areas and removing them as thoroughly as is necessary.

Recovery Stage

After the crewmembers remove all of the soaked material, they dry the surrounding area to salvage any elements of the roof that are even a little bit damp. If there is warping after the drying process is complete, those sections usually need to be cut out; this is a situation in which it's good to have the judgment of an experienced storm mitigation service. Just like with the removal stage, this drying process is faster and cheaper when a smaller area is affected.
As you can see, even initial stages of dealing with a roof leak in Spring Valley Village, TX, benefit from quick, decisive action. The same goes for any rebuilding or restoration projects you might need to do.
