How Do I Stop My Roof From Leaking?

If you’ve been experiencing heavy rains and your New England home’s roof has suddenly developed a leak, there are actions you can take to lessen the damage, protect your belongings, and help prevent the issue from occurring again in the future. While you will likely need a roof repair contractor to ultimately fix the issue (if you want it done right), here are some steps you can take in the meantime:

Protect Your Belongings

If the rain isn’t relenting and water is continuing to enter your home, your first move should be to move or cover any belongings that can be ruined by water. This includes electronics, furniture, artwork, and other valuables.

Grab a Bucket!

Roof RepairNext, you should try to control where the water entering your home goes. A bucket may do the job, though you may want to hang a string from the leak spot to the bucket to direct the water. Also, look for bubbles forming in your ceiling and puncture them to release trapped water. Place towels around your bucket to absorb any splashed water. If you’re unable to contain the leak through these means, it’s probably time to call an experienced roofing contractor.

Air Things Out

Once the rain has stopped and water is no longer entering your home, use towels, fans, or a wet vac to remove as much water as possible from carpet, furniture, etc. Water that is allowed to linger can leave a stain and also lead to mold growth in your home. You may need to pull up carpeting to allow the pad to dry.

File an Insurance Claim

Your homeowner’s policy should include protection against water damage. You’ll want an adjustor to visit as soon as possible to survey the damage so you can receive the compensation needed to return your roof to optimal condition.

The best thing I love is the craftsmanship from NEWPRO. You'd never know we had the old door cut out because it was rotted from the New England weather.
