Emergency Roofing Repair
It’s a cold winter night. A snow storm is predicted to blow in at about 9 PM. For once, the weather forecasters are right. Everyone is home and nice and toasty in bed. At about 3AM you hear a loud crashing noise. You jump out of bed startled and confused. Where did this sound come from and what caused it? You discover that a branch from the large oak tree in the front yard has cracked, crashed and landed directly over your daughter’s bedroom. You’re worried about the wind and snow. Any more pressure and the limb could come through the roof. Contact Bensalem Roofing even in the wee hours of the morning. We will be there for any emergency repair.
In Bensalem, we are no strangers to hail. These formulations of snow and ice are very common in this part of the country. A small price to pay for the beauty that surrounds us. Nonetheless, it can wreak havoc on a roof. As children, we marveled at its appearance. As adults, we worry about damage to our property. Hail most definitely attacks the granules in your roof. If you happen to have an asphalt roof, beware of hail damage. After a strong hail storm, it’s a good idea to have us come out for a free inspection.
The wind in this part of the country can be ferocious. We experience all 4 seasons. Seasonal change is beautiful but when a hurricane or tornado rolls through, all we can do is prepare and duck for cover. Tornado winds have been known to travel at up to 70 miles per hour. Although most travel at speeds between 25 to 45 miles per hour, they can still tear your roof right off your home or business. When a tornado or hurricane is predicted to hit Bensalem, there are many things that you can do to protect your roof and the people in it. Allow us to install galvanized steel hurricane clips before it is scheduled to arrive.
The interesting thing about roofs is that you never know when there is a problem until you experience a leak. It’s not like your floor or your wall where you can see a leak bubbling under the surface. As moisture rests in your ceiling it can cause mold. Black mold is particularly toxic to your family’s health. An accumulation of moisture is not good for the structural balance of your home or business. It can compromise the wood and eventually effect the entire structure. If you experience a leaky roof, contact us right away. The situation could be more serious than it appears.
Bensalem Roofing is available 24/7. If you take the time to read our 5-star Yelp reviews, you will discover that our clients praise our ability to arrive within 45 minutes in the dead of night to repair their roof. On many nights and early mornings, we have been dispatched to climb a roof using flash lights as our guide. If you have major damage to your roof, we may attach a tarp as a temporary measure to prevent rain, sleet, snow or hail from entering your property. When day breaks, we will return with all the tools and supplies necessary to repair the roof completely.
