What Must I Do If a Fire Causes Damage to My Roof?

After a fire, it's common for your roof to sustain some kind of damage. While you may not need to replace the entire roof, there are certain steps that can be taken to ensure that your home in Los Gatos, CA is safe from further damage and that it will remain standing for years to come.

Tarp Your Roof After a Fire

Tarping the roof after a fire is one of the most important things you can do to protect your home. The tarp will keep water and other elements out of your house and prevent it from leaking, which could damage the structure of your home.

The tarping process should be done correctly by professionals who know how to properly protect your property from water damage during this delicate time.

Why Tarps are Necessary After a Fire

You should be aware that tarps are necessary for a number of reasons. First, and most obviously, tarping your roof after a fire will protect it from water damage. This is important because once the rain starts up again (and it will), any exposed wood on your home's exterior will begin to swell and warp in the wetness, eventually causing significant structural damage to your house's framework. Tarping also keeps out animals and debris like leaves or twigs that can cause additional problems with erosion over time; as well as keeping out heat or cold depending on when you choose to cover up your home's exterior after a fire has occurred.

It is Important to Have a Professional Tarp Your Roof

A professional will understand the best process for tarping your roof as well as the importance of doing it correctly:

  • Roof tarps will keep the elements out and prevent further damage to your roof.
  • Roof tarps are necessary to keep the roof watertight, which is important for preventing further damage to the interior of your house.

Tarping your roof after a fire can be an expensive and time-consuming process. However, it is an important one that should not be taken lightly. The last thing you want to happen is for water damage or mold to start growing because the tarps were not installed correctly or were left off for too long. If you are dealing with this situation, please contact us right away so we can help!
