Picture this: You’re planning for a weekend away—even the bags are packed at the end of the bed—when you notice a drip from the ceiling. It’s raining outside, but now it’s also raining in your bedroom. Think you have a roof leak? Try this.
If it’s raining indoors, don’t panic. While there’s never a convenient time for your roof to leak, but there are things you can do to help mitigate the damage, minimize the cost, and prevent further damage. Here, let’s discuss what to do when you think you have a roof leak.
If you think your roof is leaking, the first thing you’ll want to do is check for a source. Where is the water coming from? Is it just a burst pipe? Have you tried shutting off the water main? If you’ve followed the usual protocol for stopping a burst pipe and your ceiling continues spewing water, it’s likely the roof. Do your best to contain the water. Immediately put a bucket beneath the leak to catch the water and help you avoid damaging your floors.
Once the leak is contained, clean up any standing water with dry towels and extra strength fans. Cleaning up water as soon as possible will help you avoid staining and mold growth. Have soaked carpets? Make sure to pull it away from the padding and expose both sides of the rug and the pad. If damage is extensive, you may need to call a water damage restoration company.
Call a professional roofing company to come out and assess any damage. A team will be able to safely identify the problem form the roof and create a plan of action. If you experienced extensive water damage, you may also want to call a water damage restoration company. Some home restoration companies near Denver specialize in roof repair as well as water damage services, so be sure to ask lots of questions before making a hire.

I can’t recommend 970 Services enough! We had extensive hail damage & Andrew Golding came out & was so kind, grace filled & helpful. We had a hard time dealing with insurance & they partnered with me on the process making the roof replacement the easiest part of our hail damage experience. A++ you can’t go wrong! I absolutely would hire them again in a heartbeat.
We are very pleased with 970 Services work and their customer service. Our roof was damaged from hail and needed to be replaced. Aaron worked with our insurance supplemental team and ensured we got the full amount that was owed to us. He also made sure the work was done correctly on our roof with a post inspection. Very professional and friendly. Thank you 970 Services for all your help! Definitely recommend!
Steve and his crew have done several projects at our house (water remediation, painting, plumbing, minor electrical, etc.), and I would use them again in a heartbeat. They are professional, responsive, and do top quality work. Their detailed estimates show where every penny goes, and they let you know if something needs to change. It's a great feeling to know that I can reach out to Steve if there's a problem, and he'll find a way to solve it.
We had a water leak from our hot water heater and our insurance company recommended 970 Services. I cannot tell you how great they were. Steve scheduled us quickly, did a very thorough inspection of damages, set up drying equipment and got things headed in the right direction. He then coordinated all necessary sub contractors for drywall, flooring, and even requested to be present when the insurance adjuster arrived so that they couldn’t skimp on us. This is the company you want to work with and I will never call anyone else! Thank you Steve & 970!
