Ceiling leaks can be caused by a number of things. Leaking pipes, penetrated weather barrier, or condensation collecting off of an air conditioning unit. It really doesn’t matter where the moisture is originating as long as the leak is remedied and the resulting issues addressed prior to the onset of rot, mold, and structural deterioration.
Our skilled technicians feel your urgency in finding a solution to your leaking ceiling dilemma. We will inspect your home for the source of the leak, make the appropriate repairs, and get your life back to normal as soon as possible. Once the leak has been located and remedied, our technicians will then address the secondary issues presented by a leak in the ceiling.
Water and drywall do not fare well together. A single drop of water on an unfinished section of drywall will cause the paper backing to expand before ruining the gypsum. Paint and wallcovering do a great job of protecting your walls from wear and stains, but neither of those finishes are applied to the backside of drywall prior to installation. Water originating in a leaky ceiling, has now compromised your walls and families health once mold begins to establish ground.
Depending on how persistent the leak has been and how long it was allowed to run unabated, you may have some serious issues with the structural stability of your homes frame work. Wood that has consistently been moist is susceptible to rot, and rot will cause your frame work to deteriorate. Homes built with metal stud do not have to worry about this, but drywall will still need to be replaced where compromised by the leak.
