Nobody ever wants a leaky roof, but there are a wide variety of circumstances out of property owners’ control that can lead to this irritating and damaging problem. Storm damage or other forms of external damage can cause a roof to leak when it is raining, for instance. Other forms of leaking roofs are connected to plumbing and caused by burst pipes. Whether you’re repairing roof leaks as a part of storm restoration or as a way to address burst pipes, here’s what you need to know about the damages leaks in a roof can cause and the steps that you can take to repair these damages with Green Restoration.
Leaking roofs can cause all kinds of damage if not properly addressed. As water runs through a roof, it can lead to swelling, staining, and cracking that you will notice on your ceiling. This noticeable ceiling damage represents hidden damage throughout the structure of the property. As moisture from a leaking roof runs through a ceiling and walls, it causes moisture that leads to mildew, mold, and other forms of decay throughout the internal components of a property.
Without being addressed, this leads to lasting structural damage. If a roof leaks consistently enough, the water damage can reach flooring, carpets, or upholstery as well, leading to extensive water damage throughout the home. Only a restoration expert with specialized tools can correct this kind of water damage.
