Roof tarps can be a real home saver.
When Mother Nature strikes us with strong winds, strong rain, or storm you may have not know that your roof was in need of some repairs or maintenance. So, when we get hit by any of those, your roof gets damaged and you could potentially be facing a leak inside your home, insects or debris entering your home. None of those are fun.
What to do then? If there was any type of storm, rain, or wind, check your roof for any damages that may have occurred. If you see that your roof may have been compromised, a tarp is the way to go. A tarp can temporarily protect your home from any further damages.
Hire professionals to install a tarp. It may look easy to install but do underestimate how easy it looks to set up.
The photo with this blog is and actual photo of a tarp that we, SERVPRO of Bellflower, set up for a home that actually suffered water damage due to a storm. We installed the tarp, for temporary protection while they hired a professional to repair the roof.
Not all tarps are blue. There are different types of tarp material and colors. For example the one that we set up.
