The next time you have water dripping into the house when it rains, it would be a good idea to contact a Roofer Tulsa OK to have things fixed. It could be something as simple as a few missing tiles but it is still a good idea to have a professional come and see if there is a bigger problem. If water is actually getting into the house, missing tiles might be the least of your worries.
In many cases, when the situation is so bad that water is seeping into the house, there is damage to the roof itself and not just the tiles covering it. This will require a professional Roofer to replace the parts that have rotted away. You do not want to just slap on some new tiles. This will only cover the bad area and will not keep water from getting underneath and damaging more of the roof.
When you hire a Roofer Tulsa OK, you can be sure that the whole roof will be looked over. If there is serious damage, you should get a second and even a third quote before having any work done. If you are lucky, the problem will be discovered and fixed when there is not a lot of rain forecasted.
In inclement weather, you will need to have a piece of plastic put over the problem area to avoid more water damage. If you have an attic, it would be a good idea to place a tarp over the entire floor or staple it too the underside of the roof as well as on the topside. It is important to try and keep the insulation dry. Wet insulation will need to be replaced and this will add to the repair cost for the roof.
Having a professional do your roofing work will give you some type of guarantee. You should not have to pay to have the same work redone due to poor workmanship. A reputable company will have no problem coming back out to fix any problems after they did the work. You should know if there are any leaks after a few good rainstorms.
