Bad weather and other sudden problems like fires can create roofing emergencies, but what do these situations entail? After all, storm damage is different from fire damage, and both of those are different from sudden leaks. For example, storm damage often results in a tree branch falling on your roof, which can cause your roof to collapse or cave in. Storm winds can also tear shingles off of roofs, leaving the roof’s lower layers exposed and creating the right conditions for major leaks. On the other hand, a fire could burn a section of your roof, which could compromise its integrity and lead to further damage. Leaks can arise from any of these situations, but if you have a flat roof membrane, they can also occur if the membrane is punctured. If you find your roof has sustained any of these types of damage, you should reach out to Kirberg for rapid response roofing and restoration services.
