Storm season this here.
Here in the Bay area it seems the rains have arrived early this year! While that is good news for the drought, it can mean bad news for property owners. Just over the past weekend we received 6 calls for roof leak related water damage alone.
In this example, flashing on the roof has failed causing water to leak into the ceiling cavity above the foyer. When we performed a moisture inspection and found visible and hidden water damage in the foyer ceiling. We recommend damage be handled in four steps:
- Apply a roof tarp to prevent water intrusion until roof repairs can be made
- Open affected ceiling and initiate drying
- Perform roof repairs and test repairs with foyer ceiling still open
- Close and repair foyer ceiling
If you should be so unlucky to have water intrusion this winter, we are here to help! Give us a call to schedule your estimate.
