How Roof Damage Can Cause Flooding in Your Augusta Home
Roof Damage That Can Flood Your Augusta Home
Storm damages can leave you with expensive repairs and unknowns for your Augusta home. Even more pressing than the immediate structural concerns are the effects that could result from vulnerabilities in areas like your home’s roof. The temperature swings through the months, along with severe weather systems, can take their toll on shingled roofs, eventually prying off individual shingles or causing entire portions of your roof’s structure to fail.
Roof damages to your Augusta home can allow for many damaging effects to occur, but the most significant concern for homeowners is flooding. With vulnerabilities and penetration points in your roof’s structure, runoff and torrential rainfall can get inside the attic and upper floors of your home unabated. To resolve this situation, you need a team that can respond quickly with restoration and mitigation experience like our SERVPRO professionals.
From the time that our team arrives at your address, we can quickly determine the source of the damage that your home has sustained and work to provide immediate emergency repairs to prevent further penetration. Board up and tarping services can provide a temporary bandage to avoid additional exposure while the mitigation work gets underway.
With flooding situations, extraction is critical to begin right away to prevent penetration into materials yet exposed to the spreading water. We can utilize portable pumps and extraction wands to ensure that all the excess water gets removed from the affected areas to help in successful drying efforts to follow shortly after. Our SERVPRO Franchise professionals can also remove at-risk items during this mitigation as part of our pack-out process to protect your belongings until the home gets restored.
Roof damage requires an immediate response from trained professionals that have the experience and equipment to help. If your home has already gotten flooded from vulnerabilities in your roof, let our SERVPRO of Augusta South/Burke & Wilkes Counties rapid response team help you to make this disaster “Like it never even happened.” Give us a call anytime that you need us at (706) 843-1990.
