Common types of roofing emergencies

roof emergency repair

We provide quick and reliable emergency roof repairs to get your home back to normal.

Obvious emergencies include: water rushing into the home through a new leak, a gaping hole created by a fallen tree line, or missing shingles from high winds. Many emergency roof repairs are needed after a severe storm or other weather events. Regardless, Klaus Roofing Systems of Upstate NY can help with:

  • Aging & exposure: Years of natural wear, severe weather, and sun exposure can weaken the roof and cause emergencies, including roof leaks, holes, and a rotting structure.
  • Fallen tree damage: A fallen tree limb puts the entire home at risk and can weaken the roofing structure. Even if damage doesn't seem severe, there still may be a danger.
  • Damaged asphalt shingles & roof decking: Damaged roof decking and shingles can lead to a major roof leak and expose the home to the elements.
  • Ice dams & ice buildup in valleys: Ice dams can lead to water building up under shingles and draining into the home. If you notice the ceiling leaking, then you may need an emergency ice dam removal.
  • Incorrect installation: Without a reliable roof installation, then there is no guarantee that the system can protect the home from the elements or stand the test of time. Any number of factors can cause the roof to leak or break down.
  • Flashing failures: If the flashing around roof penetrations, including chimneys, vent stacks, and dormers, is installed incorrectly or becomes damaged then this can lead to a major roof leak.

What to remember during a roof emergency

Stay safe! While waiting for a professional roofing contractor like Klaus Roofing Systems of Upstate NY, who has experience providing emergency roof repairs, follow these three guidelines:

  • Don't go up on the roof: A damaged roof is a dangerous environment, so you should let a professional be the first to check it out.
  • Call your insurance company: Your insurance company will send an adjuster to appraise the damage and help you with the cost of emergency roof repairs, plus a place to stay if roof problems are too severe.
  • Contact Klaus Roofing Systems of Upstate NY: We quickly respond and send one of our servicemen to your property. Keep in mind that if the emergency happens during a hurricane, severe hailstorm, or in other hazardous conditions, we may need to wait until the danger subsides to ensure the safety of our crew.
  • Protect the interior: If the home is safe, cover leaks and holes in living areas with tarps, buckets, or other waterproof items. This will collect water and protect surfaces from the elements until help arrives.
  • Inspect the roof visually: Visually inspect your roof from a safe distance on the ground to note debris and possible roof damage.

Our emergency roof repair services

Having severe roof damage can be a scary experience. So choosing a qualified roofer who is ready to offer a quick, reliable response can make all the difference. Many less than reputable companies will take advantage of homeowners after severe weather or a disaster, demanding large deposits then never finishing the job.

But there is no reason to worry, Klaus Roofing Systems of Upstate NY is licensed, insured, and trained to deal with any roofing emergency you may have. We use top-quality materials and the best solutions to ensure your home is safe and protected after a roofing emergency.

  • Inspect the damage: Do not attempt to climb onto the roof to assess damages. If you can, document problems and take photos from a safe distance on the ground for your insurance company. Once one of our professionals arrives, they will safely inspect the area and evaluate all damages.
  • Tarping: Do not attempt to tarp the roof on your own. DIY tarping is dangerous and can lead to serious injury. Plus, tarping the area yourself can also cause additional damage to the property if done incorrectly. A professional will securely tarp your roof to protect the home from the elements.
  • Assessing the structure: If the structural integrity is compromised, a roofer may advise you to find somewhere to stay until they repair the structure.

Emergency hail & storm damage repairs in Greater Albany

Severe storm damage and hail can wreak havoc on a roof. But whether the roof damage is from gusting winds, torrential rains, heavy snow, or large hailstones, Klaus Roofing Systems of Upstate NY will provide a quick and reliable response for:

  • Missing or broken shingles
  • Damage to the underlayment
  • Heavy roof leaks
  • Fallen tree limbs

Depending on the type of storm, our crew may need to wait until conditions are safe before coming to the property. So the first thing we advise is to stay clear of the roof and don't try to climb up to evaluate the damage or tarp any holes.

Once at your home, our roofers safely inspect all roof damage. Then, we securely tarp exposed areas, providing temporary protection from the elements and preventing secondary damage. After, we recommend repairs to restore the structural integrity of the system.
