Water damage can destroy a home and cause a lot of money worth of damage in a short period of time if you aren’t careful. Water damage can happen in several ways, but one big way would be from roof damage. When your roof gets damaged and then it rains, it will let water into your home, causing problems with your insulation and drywall. There are several signs you can pay attention to, to be able to catch water damage before it can destroy your walls. Unfortunately, the signs are usually just the product of damage so it is always best to call out an inspector once a year to catch the damage before it has time to do any harm. It is recommended that you have an inspector out once a year to be able to look around your roof and catch any damage that could be there. This will end up saving you money in the long run as well.
Catching Water Damage
Brown Stains On Ceiling – This sign means water is already in your walls, but if you act fast, you can get the damage under control. This is also one of the easiest ways to be able to tell there is some kind of roof leak happening. Sometimes during a storm, a shingle can get damaged and water will leak into your roof. If it is caught soon enough, the damage can be fixed rather easily without further damage, but waiting can cause a lot more trouble.
Mold – Mold is a word that nobody ever wants to hear in regards to their home. If you look on your roof and can see mold starting to develop, there may be water damage underneath. Mold thrives in moist areas and if water is trapped in the wood of your roof, it is going to spread, causing mold to move all over your roof.
