Emergency Roof Tarping Service
Temporary Emergency Roof Tarping
Temporary emergency roof tarping is a service A+ roofing offers when it’s not possible to repair your roof right away. Repairing your roof is hard enough in the best of weather conditions. Add icy surfaces, high winds or rain and the job can be extremely hazardous. Sometimes it’s not practical for us to be on your roof making repairs. That is when it’s necessary to use tarps as a temporary measure to protect your roof. Using large strong tarps that we secure with nails and wood strips to the damaged portion of the roof makes it possible to hold off on repairs until the weather conditions improve.
If conditions allow, before the tarp is installed we will have one of our professional roof inspectors inspect the damage. That way we can give you a complete estimate for the roof repair so you can begin the claims process with your insurance company. Once the conditions are favorable your roof will be repaired properly.
