What is roof tarping after storm damage?
Imagine: the big one hits. A gigantic thunderstorm (or, more likely in Western New York, a historic blizzard) blows through town and wreaks havoc on your neighborhood.
You're fast asleep when you hear an enormous crashing sound coming from above you.
Uh-oh. The limb of a nearby tree has decided to finally give out and crash into your roof, punching a hole in the top of your house.
What do you do?
Obviously, you'll need to clear the limb. But once that work is complete, you've still got issues on your hands. Your roof has been compromised and your house is now exposed to the elements, including snow, rain, ice and wildlife.
Getting a roofer out to fix the problem could take days, if not weeks, especially if the weather's bad.
That's where emergency roof tarping comes in. Tarping your roof is a temporary fix that prevents additional secondary damage after an initial damage event.
If you've had damage to your roof, don't wait - call for a tarp-up before it gets any worse.
