3 Steps To Reclaim Your Roof After the Fire

5/21/2018 (Permalink)

There are often many areas of a commercial building to inspect after a fire has taken place, in addition to the other steps of the remediation process. You may be too preoccupied with internal damage to think about sheltering the shelter itself. Protect your St. George, UT, building's roof by keeping the following pointers in mind during your fire cleanup.


1. Repair Deliberate Damage


Even if the fire didn't cause drastic damage to your building, your roof may not be intact. To slow the fire's growth, firefighters and roof repair specialists may have needed to cut holes in the walls and roof of the building. Such techniques can allow firefighters to see through thick clouds of smoke and air out an area afterwards. Regardless of the extent of the fire's wrath, prepare for a possible remediation in these areas.


2. Deal With Instability


Even after you have received the permission of safety professionals to reenter your building, always use caution when returning to the property. When it comes to roof and floor damage, fire can pack a punch. A roof can quickly become unstable, presenting a safety hazard to anyone inside. Address any roof repair needs promptly.


2. Use Tarps To Protect the Building


Without proper shelter, your building could become exposed to the elements. Avoid doubling the work of your fire cleanup process by keeping rain and debris out. You can do this by covering the roof of your building with a tarp. By relying on professional tarp services, you can have the peace of mind that your building won't suffer further damage or property loss.

With all of the boxes to check during a fire cleanup, it can be easy to forget about one of the most important: the roof over your head. Don't miss this major step of the process. Arrange temporary shelter for your property and keep your building and everything in it protected.
