Top Gun has a lot of experience with tarp overs and can respond very quickly in time of need, just give us a call at (719) 572-5130 and we’ll be right there.
Reasons why you many need a Tarp Over
- Severe Wind – From windstorms to tornadoes, high winds can cause significant damage to a roof. The faster you call us to tarp over your roof after wind damage, the less likely your structure will sustain water damage.
- Fire – If you have a fire, there is a high probability the Fire Department will cut a hole in your roof or burst out a window or door so they can put out the fire. Once this happens, the structure isn’t safe to enter until a building official, restoration professional or structural engineer inspects and gives the okay to reenter. Until then, a temporary roof is a must to prevent further water damage.
- Property Vacancy or Vandalism – Foreclosed and abandoned properties are usually suspect to damage from previous tenants. Failure to tarp over or close up penetrations could cause long-term damage before a new owner arrives.
- Preventive Measures – Sever weather warnings are the first opportunity to protect windows, doors and a roof. It provides an extra layer of material to weather the storm, pun intended.
