Roof Tarps and Storms
A roof leak during a storm can cause extensive damage if not handled immediately. A home in Temple City suffered from water and mold damage due to a roof leak during a storm. SERVPRO of Glendora/San Dimas & Irwindale/Baldwin Park attended to the damages quickly once being contacted by the home owner, removing affected drywall and insulation.
If a roof leak is discovered during a storm, tarping the roof is a temporary fix. It is not a permanent fix as strong winds could take it away, it could shift, and depending on the force of the storm water could still internally affect the home. When a roof leak is discovered it is best to attend to it and the resulting damages as soon as possible.
