What Do I Do if My Roof is Leaking?

Our first priority is to fix your roof and prevent further damages to your belongings. If you ever experience a roof leak, it’s important to know what to do in order to stem the flow of water into your home – and to keep your belongings safe.

  1. Call a professional. This is the first step and also the most important. Call Element roofing for emergency roof repair in Pleasanton – and then proceed to the following steps once you’ve confirmed that the repair team is on their way.
  2. Move your belongings. The first thing we recommend you do in the event of an emergency roof leak is to remove any valuables from the immediate area. If you don’t want your items to get water damaged, then move them to a different room entirely. Next, place a bucket or other water receptacle beneath the leak to catch dripping water.
  3. Poke a hole in your ceiling. What? Yep, you read that right. When water collects in the interior roof of your home, it will start to pool and form a puddle. This can be very dangerous, because it means that the water is weighing down your ceiling and putting it at risk of collapsing completely. Use a screwdriver to poke a hole where the leak is – just large enough for water to flow freely and prevent pooling.
  4. Tarp your roof. Once the rain has stopped (or lulled considerably), you can attempt to put a tarp over the weak spot in the roof. Any old tarp will do, and you can use a staple gun and some spare wood to secure over the leaky roof patch. Here is a tutorial on how to tarp your roof
  5. Wait for professional help to arrive and assess the damages.
