Leaky Chimneys

If you see signs within your home of a leak that seems to coincide with rainy weather, you may have a leak somewhere in your roof. A common place for this leak to be found in homes with a wood burning fireplace is near the chimney. The sealant and flashing near where the chimney contacts the rest of the roof can crack and fail, allowing water to leak into your home.

The symptoms you’re likely to see are wet spots in the walls, ceiling, or floors nearby the fireplace, or on the walls adjacent to the chimney where it runs through your home. Other signs that are less likely to be spotted are rotten wood or mold growing in the attic. In the event that you see any of these signs, it’s important to address them quickly.

Left untreated, mold and wood rot can compromise the structural integrity of your home, and put your family’s health at risk. Mold spores can become airborne, and cause serious medical problems if inhaled. Wooden beams that have mold growing on them become far less rigid and can break under even light loads.

The longer these leaks are left untreated, the worse the problem can become. It’s unlikely that you will spot the leak soon after it starts, and many of our customers call us after they’ve found a leak in their home that leads them to discover a much bigger danger hidden in their attic.

We can help you in these terrible situations. Our trained professionals will use skill, experience, and advanced tools to determine where the water damage is, how badly it’s affected your home, and what steps need to be taken to resolve the issue. Because we’re also licensed contractors, we can not only dry out the water damage but remove and rebuild any structure that’s too far gone to salvage. By working directly with your homeowner’s insurance company, we can ensure that your expenses are kept to a minimum and that your home will be restored to it’s prime.

If you have found any evidence of water damage in your home, call us today at 919-467-1991. Our services are available 24/7, and there’s no job too big or too small.

To our customers, vendors, families and friends:

Professional Restoration Services, like so many other small businesses in our community, is doing our part both to stop the spread of Coronavirus and remain focused on the safety of our employees and growth of our company.  Over the last few weeks, we have taken the necessary steps to limit our staff’s presence in the office allowing everyone to work remotely.  The foundation of our scope of work is to help customers with water damage and the repairs that follow, no matter when they happen.  Our employees are now working in our customers’ homes wearing the proper PPE (Personal Protective Equipment).  With that in mind we are continuously monitoring the rapidly evolving situation regarding this pandemic and we are continuing to make the necessary adjustments.

We have implemented the following measures to ensure the health and safety of our customers, staff and vendors:

  • Our amazing staff is working remotely.  We are so thankful for technology that allows this to happen.
  • We will be continuing to meet with potential customers and inspect properties, wearing masks, gloves and shoe covers. 
  • During normal times we love a handshake but these days we are opting for a friendly air high five or an air fist bump, a wave or even a simple word of  “thanks”.  Please know we appreciate your business.
  • While jobs are in progress, if you have any questions or concerns, we ask that you contact your Project Manager by phone or email directly.  They will address them immediately.

During these uncertain times, we remain hopeful.  We believe these efforts are in the best interests of our employees, customers and the community.  We will get through this.  Our Mission remains the same:  To provide exceptional service during all aspects of the restoration process through clear communication and always putting our customers first.
