What Should You Do If Something Has Punctured a Hole in Your Roof?

You walk outside for a morning stroll and notice that something has punctured a hole in your roof. The instant thoughts of gloom and doom set in and rightfully so. No one wants a hole in their roof and the worst part is that you’re not even sure what to do. All you know is that it can’t stay that way.

A punctured roof is an emergency issue that needs to be looked at immediately. A Licensed Roofing Contractor can assess the damage and at a minimum, temporarily secure the roof until a full inspection can be scheduled.

What is a roof puncture, exactly?

Roof punctures can happen at any time and are typically caused when a foreign object puts too much pressure on your roofing material and creates a hole. That hole can range from a small hole in a single shingle to a hole that goes straight through to the underlayment and plywood beneath the shingles.

Many things can puncture a hole in your roof. Just a few examples include:

  • Tree limbs
  • Hailstones
  • Rodents and animals
  • Strong winds
