No matter how well you maintain your home, you simply can’t prevent damage during a severe storm. If your home’s roof has recently been damaged in a storm, you need to call a local roofing service as soon as possible. They may be able to repair your roof, but in severe cases, they may have to replace it.
In either case, you will need to protect your roof and your home in general until they can schedule you for a roofing service call. Local roofing companies are notoriously busy after large storms, but as a homeowner, you can take a few simple steps to waterproof your home before they arrive.
The video posted here explains how to tarp your roof after storm damage. Roof tarps are specialized tarps that can be secured to your roof using simple supplies, including 1×2 pieces of lumber and eight-penny nails. These supplies should be available at your local home improvement store.
You may only need to tarp part of your roof if the leaks are confined to a small area. If the damage is extensive, you may need to tarp your whole roof to prevent water infiltration in your home.
