When fire damages your building, one of the most important parts of fire cleanup to tackle immediately is damage to the roof. The heat and flames of the fire may have weakened roofing structures or left gaping holes, leaving your property open to the weather. Firefighters may have opened holes in the roof to be sure there weren't hidden pockets of fire. No matter how those damages were caused, you need quick repairs, so you can get your commercial property back in shape as quickly as possible.

Don't Postpone Repairs

What's at risk? When you don't treat damage to the roof immediately, your business could suffer in a number of ways.

  • Rain, wind, and other environmental elements could damage the interior of the building and any furnishings and inventory inside.
  • Vandals and thieves may enter your building, increasing your losses.
  • Weakened building materials could affect the stability of surrounding structures.
  • Failure to control damages could impact your insurance coverage.

Dangers of DIY Tarping

One of the first things many property owners do is to install tarping, and it may seem like a few 2x4s and some heavy-duty clothes will do the trick. However, temporary covers are notorious for providing too little in the way of serious protection. Instead of leaving yourself and your property open to further losses, talk to fire cleanup professionals about tarp services.

Reach Out to Professionals

Professionals tackle roof repair by applying an emergency protective cover to prevent further interior damage and protect against more structural damage. If weather doesn't allow for long-term repairs, the emergency repairs will protect against further environmental exposure. After assessing the extent of the damage, professionals will often work with insurance companies as they repair the structural integrity of your roof and complete the reconstruction of your roofing.

There's enough fire cleanup work for you to handle without worrying about the roof as well. This is one area that should always be turned over to Layton, UT, professionals.
