Roof damage is a common byproduct of major house fires. Even if the blaze originated on a lower floor, fire has a tendency to climb when given any opportunity. Along with fire, smoke and heat have an inclination to rise upward as well. And whether or not flames actually reached your roof directly, heat damage can still occur in a fairly short period of time. Regardless of whether or not the fire seemed contained to a lower level, checking your roof for fire damage is always a good idea.
A compromised roof can be a gateway to additional fire damage problems for your home. And this can be especially true in the winter. If you’re hoping to remain in your home during any of the repair process, heat retention becomes extremely difficult if your roof has sustained damage. But even if you’re elsewhere throughout the fire damage restoration, a compromised roof can lead to further damage due to freezing and thawing. Water can make its way beneath the roof and settle into places it really shouldn’t be. This can lead to mold, erosion, and other weather-related damages. Roof board up services ensure that your home is protected from these potential threats and others as well.
