When your roof has a leak the immediate urge to have it fixed as soon as possible can be overwhelming. Everyone wants to prevent further leaking and damage inside their home. Having to watch your ceiling and walls get ruined by water and not be able to immediately do anything about it can be unnerving to homeowners.
Avoid Roofing in the Rain
However, just because it needs to be sealed right away, or at least secured with a tarp, doesn’t mean that you should get up on a roof while it is still raining due to the hazardous conditions caused by the rain.
Roofing is a dangerous occupation for even highly trained professionals. According to the Department of Labor “roofers” is the third most dangerous occupation in the United States. Because of these dangers most homeowners avoid getting on their roof. Many of them do an internet search and contact the top rated roofers for assistance. Absolute Assurance Restorations is one such company.

The typical dangers roofers are faced with when on your roof are only amplified during the rain. That is why it is unsafe for anyone to get onto a roof while it is still raining. The conditions on the roof are more hazardous because the roof is wet and this increases the likelihood for slips and falls.
Also, any roof repair, or roof installation, done in the rain decreases the chances of the roof being installed or repaired correctly. A roof must be installed during more ideal conditions to guarantee that all parts of the new roofing system were installed correctly. Proper installation is necessary to optimize the life of the roof and to prevent any defects caused by shoddy installation. No one wants a newly installed roof that will fail when you need it the most.
Quality roofers will secure your roof once the rain stops and conditions improve. If you do-it-yourself, wait until the conditions improve to repair your roof. Either way, damage to your home and hazardous injuries can be minimized by waiting for better conditions.
