How SERVPRO Works Against Fire Damage to your Santa Monica Home's Roof

8/29/2019 (Permalink)

Roof damage from a fire in Santa Monica, let us help you through the smoke today.

Let us bring you through the light in your Santa Monica home.

The roof is often one of the most heavily impacted parts of a home that has suffered from fire damage. Many fires start and stop on the rooftops of American homes, and sometimes, even small interior blazes can cause damage to the roof despite never spreading there. SERVPRO technicians have plenty of safety equipment and experience to enable them to conduct restorations on any roofing materials, but the exact nature of our work may sometimes be puzzling without this background knowledge of why we may spend so much time on top of your home.

Smoke Damage

The most common type of fire damage to Santa Monica homes' roofs that we see is smoke damage. Smoke particles can spread throughout the entire home through air vents, but much of the worst damage happens inside attics where smoke particles collect just below the tough outer roofing materials. You may not immediately notice smoke smells unless you have a loft, but over time, the particles may seep back into the rest of your home. SERVPRO inspectors create a detailed analysis of the fire and the path it took so that we can identify and treat any potential smoke residues underneath your roofing.

Burnt Tiles

Most exterior home fires start or spread to the roof thanks to lightning strikes and the natural spread of a fire. We may be able to refinish the damaged section of roofing if the damage is light enough, but other times, you may need to replace large sections of tiling and other roofing materials. Many large house fires result in substantial repair work to the tiles and other materials used to construct a roof.


Any time that a fire burns a hole in your home's exterior, we make it a priority to set up tarps or other patches to keep weather elements out of your home. Rainwater and winds can substantially worsen any existing damages to your home, but with waterproof tarps, we can prevent these problems from developing. Tarps are especially critical for large house fires that open up sizable holes. Without fast action, you could face flooding and potentially toxic mixtures of water and fire residues in your home.
