It is very important to secure your property after a storm causes damage to your home, particularly your roof. You should have the building’s structure inspected for safety and secure the property to ensure that no further damage will happen to your property. Leaving a hole in the roof means that rain and the elements could further damage your home and its contents.

Dangers of tarping your own roof!

Fall Hazards – Damaged roofs can have structural faults or weak points due to the damage to the roof. The roof should be inspected by trained professionals for strength and structural integrity before performing repairs on it. Climbing and walking on rooftops can incredibly dangerous. Preforming work without the proper safety equipment is at best foolish and could be against the law!

Electrical Shock – Many homes and buildings have all kinds of overhead powerlines and electrical wires running to or through the roof. Combining water and electricity is never a good idea and once a roofs structure has been compromised the chances for electrocution multiply. All power lines should be treated as “live” and trained professionals should be the only people allowed to touch or even work in close proximity to them.

Inclement Weather – Chances are the reason your roof has been damaged is due to a weather-related event. From hail and high winds, to trees or other structures damaging your rooftop. Mother nature can really cause some damage! Sometimes it can be hard to tell if mother nature is done dealing damage or if she is just taking a break and has more harsh weather to dish out. Don’t be fooled into climbing up on your roof only to get caught in a thunderstorm or tornado. Wait for all storm advisories to be lifted prior to inspecting, tarping, or repairing damages.

*There are many risks involved with climbing on the roof of any structure and SERVPRO of Marietta West advised you keep your feet firmly planted on the ground. Call the professionals when it comes to inspecting, tarping, and repairing your home or business’s roof. For more information about roof tarping visit our friends over at www.osha.com.
