This year has been a flux of warm sunshine and heavy rain. What no homeowner in the Twin Cities wants to hear is the sound of water dripping into the home. When rain water is coming in you need more than a bucket and a prayer for sunshine to keep you dry. By the time you actually hear, see, or feel the water leaking, damage to the structure of your home or business has already occurred.
Help! What Do I Do?
The first step is to minimize whatever effects you are able and clean up water that has pooled or collected in your home. Then:
- Use a large plastic bucket or bin to capture water drops
- Call for emergency services from a trusted roofing contractor
- Contact your insurance company
