Severe weather conditions weaken the roof if it does not damage it. Somehow, no matter how sturdy the build of the roof, a loose nail, dislodged protective surface granules, clogging, water accumulation on a particular portions, would happen that, while the roof may not need to be repaired at the moment, the accumulation of the damaging factors and weathering eventually will. In many cases, especially in older houses, emergency roof repairs have to be in order to prevent the structure near the roof to be damaged also.
Causes of roof damages and failing roofs are as varied as roof designs and the materials used. If a contractor is needed but is not available at the moment, here are emergency repair procedures that you could do to protect the house from further damage.
Have plastic sheeting always at hand. Plastic sheeting is typically used as emergency procedures in roof repair but you can also use it to protect the interior of the house. Use the plastic sheeting to control the spread of water to other parts of the houses’ other parts.
Resist the urge to get a ladder to get to the roof when inclement weather has not fully subsided. There will always be the danger of slipping, falling and being hit by lightning. When the weather does, check the drains and the flushing. Roof leaks and roof damage are minimized when the scuppers are cleaned of debris. Check that the drains are not clogged and that the water is free to flow. There are countless cases of collapsed roofs caused by excessive flooding of the gutters and drains.
Check for roof leaks. Locate the source of the leak from inside the home. From there determine the location of the roof where the leak is coming from, once located, check also the flushing that are proximate to the leak. When the flushing is ballasted, remove it and examine the surface for punctures, cuts, or splits.
Roof tapes and Sealants. Sealants and roof tapes are one of the safest emergency procedures as these are designed not to damage most roofing membranes and work well with most other material. To apply, clean first the membrane that are to be treated with alcohol or a glass cleaner and then dry the surface with a splice cleaner. Cleaning must be done so that the repair materials adhere better to the treated portion. When the surface is cleaned, apply the caulking. When using a roof tape, apply an even pressure to the entire area to insure that the tapes adheres well.
Duct Tape could be used when working with PVC. Duct tapes would not adhere to wet and dirty surfaces. Duct tapes are used to make a temporary patch to the affected membrane but this is a very temporary measure. It is advisable to check the tape once in a while to insure that it seals the roofing membrane.
