Water Damage In A Ceiling
If you ever look up while standing inside your home and see water stains on the ceiling, you’re not going to have a pleasant reaction.

The source of the leak is likely either from the roof, or upstairs plumbing. For top floor ceilings, the source of the water could be a faulty appliance, like a hot water heater or HVAC system. It could also be a leak in the roof that is letting in rainwater. Lower floor ceiling damage can be caused by all those same sources, as the water may be running down the inside of an upstairs wall, and settling between floors. Additionally, the water could be coming from an upstairs bathroom or laundry fixture.
With so many possible sources for the water, it can be very difficult to stop the leak, since it’s source is likely hidden somewhere that’s difficult to access. Using advanced tools like moisture meters and infrared thermal imaging, we can detect where the water is coming from, how much of your home has been affected, and how serious the damage may be.
We can then work directly with your insurance company to not only make sure your out of pocket costs are kept to a minimum but also to make sure that all of the damage is restored.
