When your home or business has suffered damage to its roof during a storm, it is essential to act quickly to prevent further damage and protect your property. One of the most effective ways to do this is by using a professional roof-tarping service. Roof-tarping is the process of covering a damaged roof with a tarp to prevent further water intrusion and protect the interior of the building.

The first step in the roof-tarping process is to evaluate the area for safety concerns. Once it is determined that the area is safe, a needs analysis is performed to assess the damage, determine the method for temporary repair, and appropriate equipment and personnel. This ensures that the roof-tarping process is carried out safely and effectively.

Next, any debris from the damaged area is removed, and the area is measured to determine the size of the tarp needed. It is essential to use the correct size tarp to ensure proper coverage and protection.

Once the necessary measurements are taken, the actual board-up and tarp-up process can begin. It is crucial to complete this process while being cautious and avoiding further damage to prevent additional repairs. Experienced technicians will use approved board-up techniques to secure the property and minimize further damage. They will then properly install the tarp, which can give weeks of protection, allowing time to assess the roof damage and plan for permanent repairs.

After the roof has been tarped, the interior of the building is evaluated to determine any additional damage and recommend next steps. This may involve water extraction, drying, and repairs to prevent further damage and restore the property as closely as possible to its pre-damaged condition.

Roof-tarping is a critical process that can help protect your property from further damage during a storm. By following a thorough evaluation, needs analysis, debris removal, proper measurements, and safe installation, our experienced professionals can help minimize the impact of a storm and provide peace of mind for property owners.
