Rainstorms can be a welcome relief from the heat and most residents assume their roof will protect them from getting soaked. However, when your roof starts leaking, you likely have a serious problem on your hands. For some homeowners, finding the source of the leak can be a real hassle. Even if your roof is only leaking during severe weather, it's important to cover any gaps, holes, or weak spots in your roof. If you notice any sort of roof damage, call the professionals at S.T.O.P. Restoration immediately. We can apply tarps over any holes in your roof to protect your home’s exterior. Our team can also mitigate the water damage or mold damage inside your home.
Any Leak Can Be Serious
Though it might sound counter intuitive, slower roof leaks often cause more damage. This happens over an especially rainy week or during the local storm season. As the water slowly seeps beneath your roof, it can pool or spread throughout the drywall, insulation, and wood framing causing serious water damage or mold damage. Some signs that you have a roof leak or water damage are:
- Water leaking behind your gutters
- Visible pooling water
- Wet spots or damp wood inside attic on roof sheeting or rafters
- Bubbling paint around electrical outlets
- Damp or dripping drywall around light fixtures
- Moisture above or below your windows
- Dripping sounds in the bathroom, vent, or chimney
Protect Your Home and Your Health
Though water and mold damage are very serious problems, if left untreated, leaks can make your structure unstable. Leaks can cause your framing to develop serious structural issues threatening your safety. Water and mold damage can eat away at your wood supports, leaving your roof exposed to collapsing. If you suspect your roof has water or mold damage, or need assistance discovering leaks, the team at S.T.O.P. Restoration is here to help with water damage mitigation and mold remediation.
