If your roof is leaking or if the storm has damaged its shingles and flashing, a repair is probably the only way forward. But dealing with roof problems in extreme weather can be more challenging. You’d want to protect your roof from further damage and stop any leaks, but your roofer may need more time to get to you.
1. Minimize or avoid water damage.
Cover up any holes with waterproof tarps. Place heavy boards around the perimeter of the tarp to secure it to the surface of the roof. Once your roofer arrives, they can remove the tarp. Plastic sheeting will also do.
Patch up minor leaks with roofing tape. For active drips, place towels around the affected area and place buckets beneath the leak to catch falling water.
Cover your furniture, and anything that can be damaged by water, with a plastic covering.
2. Patch the roof or flashing with roofing cement.
You need a roofing trowel/ putty knife for proper application.
3. Use a high-grade roofing tar to cover a crack or a leak.
4. Reattach loose shingles or replace broken/missing ones.
