What Do I Do if a Tree Fell on My Roof?
When a tree falls on your roof, it causes many problems: it damages your home’s structure, it exposes your home to the elements, & increases risk of other damage from electrical sources. What is the process when a tree falls on your roof?
- Contact the necessary people. You'll want to call your insurance company to consider coverage. You'll also want to contact a Roofer and a Tree Removal company. Can SERVPRO® help? We sure can! We're able to performing tarping as well as water restoration if the interior of your house was exposed to the elements.
- Remove the tree. This might seem like an obvious step, but we can't addresses the problem until the damaged area of your roof has been cleared.
- Tarp exposed areas. A fallen tree will likely cause damage to your roof, leaving it exposed. To ensure outside elements don’t get in and cause more damage, tarping temporarily protects your home.
- Contact a roofing company. Even if the roof is tarped, you’ll need to contact a roofing company to determine the next phase of repairs.
A fallen tree can cause a lot of damage and headache, but with the above steps, you can get your life back on track. Leave it to SERVPRO®, we'll make it "Like it never even happened."
