Emergency Roof Repairs in Salem, Oregon

Posted on Emergency Roof Repairs in Salem, Oregon

Roof leaks aren’t polite, and they certainly don’t wait until it’s convenient to start causing damage. If you need emergency roof repairs in Salem, Oregon, give us a call immediately at (503) 585-2338.

An unforeseen roofing problem can hit your home or business any day, and at any time. Finding a contractor for roof repairs in Salem needs to happen very quickly sometimes, and you shouldn’t wait to start calling contractors if you notice your roof leaking. Previously, we put together a guide on what to do if your home or business starts leaking during a storm, but in this post, we will discuss how emergency roof repairs work.

Emergency roof repairs are often called in during a storm, which means there could be many home and business owners calling in. With that being said, call several Salem roofing contractors, not just one. Be sure to ask when they can get to your project. Once you’ve found the right roofer who can get to your roof quickly, here’s what you can expect:

  • Your roof problem will not likely be fixed for the long-term.
  • Your roofer will most likely perform a quick “band-aid” type repair and get to their next customer.
  • In the near future, your contractor will contact you to come out and provide you with a full roofing estimate for the remainder of the work that should be done.
  • Once you receive your new roofing estimate, if you accept the project, your contractor will schedule your job and it will carry on like any other roofing project.

Please note that by hiring a Salem roofing company to perform your emergency roof repairs, you are not obligated to work with that same contractor for your longer-term repairs or roof replacement. You can “shop around” after the emergency repair situation is over if you aren’t satisfied with the speed, quality, or price of your emergency repair roofing contractor. Please note that due to the frantic nature of emergency roof repairs, these types of repairs often cost more to customers. The justification is that your roofing contractor had to pay one of their workers to either wake up, leave their family, or otherwise drop everything they were doing to come help you, and no contractor likes doing that to their talented workers.
