There are many things to like about the great state of Oklahoma including its green landscape, blue skies, and family-friendly atmosphere. However, a resounding complaint among native residents and transplants alike is the frequency of intense storms including tornadoes and strong winds. Oklahoma is known for its wild weather, and yes, we are the type that goes outside to see what is going on during a storm—well, not necessarily my wife, but I am definitely out there.
With the frequency and severity of storms, it is helpful to have a construction company that you can trust especially when you find yourself suddenly in need of roofing services. An emergency repair may be needed after a strong storm has swept through your area or perhaps a leak has sprung from an all-day rain. Sometimes dealing with an unexpected home emergency can be unnerving. No worries—we are available to take your call and be at your service.
We would encourage you not to risk your own safety by climbing on your roof yourself or by trying to replace shingles on your own. Unless you have experience roofing, you may actually cause more damage to your roof by attempting to repair it on your own. Instead, you can safely walk around the exterior of your home to see if any damage is visible to your roof from the ground level. If you see anything alarming, we are just a phone call away.
As previously mentioned, strong winds are a common occurrence in Oklahoma. These strong winds do not just necessarily accompany a heavy rainstorm. Strong winds can prevail even on days filled with sunshine and clear skies. Some days are just windy, and these winds can persist all day. There is only so much you can do to prepare your roof for this kind of extreme weather. Even if you have your roof inspected regularly or perform the proper maintenance to keep your roof in good shape, sometimes you just cannot predict or prevent shingles from blowing off your roof. Repairing blown-off shingles is important and should be done immediately to prevent further damage to the roof or—worse yet—the interior, particularly if rain is in the forecast. We are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week to tarp off your roof. Naturally, we cannot tarp a roof in the dark, but we can get you scheduled for a tarp as soon as possible. Tarping a roof makes it weathertight so that water cannot penetrate the damaged area until a permanent repair can be done. In some cases, the exposed area may need to be tarped until an insurance adjuster can come out to your property to assess the damage to your roof.
Unfortunately, a roof leak can happen at any given time and generally without warning. On many occasions, the rain here in Oklahoma comes down in buckets and can persist for hours on end. A wet roof can be slick. Consequently, it can be extremely risky to scale. Now, we have been on a roof when it’s raining to find the source of a leak. However, it’s usually best to find a leak after the rain has stopped. If your roof is leaking, we are available 24/7. We will do all we can to get the leak to stop right away, but that may depend on the style and pitch of your roof if it’s raining at the time we stop by. However, once the rain stops, we can evaluate the issue and find a solution.
When an unforeseen event happens to the exterior part of your house—perhaps a tree limb crushes your roof—you need it fixed right and fixed fast. Your home must be repaired in a way that you don’t have to worry about additional damage. Of course, you don’t want your home vulnerable to water or critters getting in. Repairs are possible on the spot if the materials are available. Completing repairs after business hours may be difficult since finding the materials to match your current roof could be challenging if suppliers are closed for the day. Performing a temporary repair might be an option until the next business day when the proper materials can be procured.
If you need an emergency repair or service, that can be a difficult circumstance to deal with and figure out. That’s why at Robert Moore Construction we set out to make the repair process as simple as possible. That can be done by having us simply answer the phone when you need help the most or to be given a quick call back if we’re on the phone. Furthermore, we are a company that you can rely on and trust throughout the entire repair process.
