Water Damage & Ceiling Leaks Jacksonville Florida
It’s a nightmare for any homeowner: the leaky roof. It’s frustrating, it’s costly, and it’s a hassle to replace. As much as you want to put off your roof until it’s right for the budget, it’s important to get it replaced right away. Water damage can have an effect on a variety of different elements of the home, including walls, floors, ceilings, and home furnishings.
The roof may be leaking for a variety of reasons. It’s important to have a complete roof inspection at the first sign because the roof leak can inevitably turn into a ceiling leak, which leads to water damage inside the home.
Our roofing technicians often water leaks as the result of harsh natural elements that have caused a significant wear and tear of the roof. Although you can’t do much about Mother Nature, you can do something to prevent significant damage to the roof.
What can water damage do?
You’d be surprised about all of the damage that the small leak can have on your home and roof. We’ve seen leaks create the following damage inside of homes:
- Weak and soggy ceiling panels
- Mold and mildew in damp areas of the home
- Mushy or damp wallboards, corkboard walls, and dry walls
- Significant bacteria growth
- Wood pieces in the home swell, lift, and rot
- Increase of humidity in the home
- Extensive structural damage to the home
Preventative maintenance may stop ceiling leaks
A well-preserved roof that is routinely maintained can withstand the elements for a longer period of time as opposed to a neglected roof. It’s a more efficient way and the most effective to prevent ceiling leaks and water damage from entering the interior of your home.
