Spearing Isn't Just for Fishing!
Sometimes we get called for repairs due to tree limbs puncturing the roof line. See what this client was up against after a violent storm passed through their area.
When a large tree branch spearheads your roof, it's not always easy to see or realize it until leaks start to happen. Luckily for this homeowner, they were home during a strong storm that passed through their area. After noticing water in their kitchen, they hopped on the roof and realized that a tree branch punctured a hole the size of a softball in their brand new roof. Thinking fast, they grabbed anything they could find to temporarily hold off any additional leaks. Using a couple of extra license plates and a trash bag, they quickly patched the area until we were able to come out the next day.
