Roof Leaks and Structural Damage

Dalworth Restoraion’s water damage specialists understand the susceptibility of roofing materials to water damage. It’s crucial for property owners to stay alert for signs of water damage that can jeopardize the structural integrity of their homes or businesses. A leaky roof can lead to water damage, affecting not only the roof and supporting infrastructure but also the overall framework of the property.

Identifying Water Damage

Express Water Damage Restoration advises individuals to watch out for indications of water damage, as it often begins with a leaky roof but can swiftly lead to other property-related issues.

  • Attic: Water leaks from the roof can result in structural damage and rot in the attic rafters, compromising the stability of the structure.
  • Insulation: Wet insulation in attics and behind walls can cause rusting of steel screws.
  • Ceilings: Water damage on ceilings manifests as dark spots or areas with leaks.
  • Joists and Studs: The wooden support structures for ceilings and walls are prone to rotting in the presence of constant moisture.
  • Drywall: Interior walls and ceilings made of drywall swell, discolor, and develop mold when exposed to water.
  • Floors: Water leaks can accumulate beneath carpets and cause damage to both the carpeting and the underlying floors.¬†

Roof Leaks & Property Water Damage

Water damage from the roof to the foundation, regardless of its size, can cause gradual shifting of the structure’s support, resulting in visible cracks and structural deterioration.

  • Compromised Energy Efficiency: Leaky roofs lead to wet insulation, rendering insulation ineffective for energy savings. Proper insulation helps conserve energy and maintain comfortable indoor temperatures year-round. In a home with damp and inefficient insulation, heating and cooling costs will be significantly higher.

    • Water Damage: The structure and contents can be damaged by water leaks and flooding. Long-term exposure to water can soil and damage furniture and other household possessions, reducing their value and functionality. Common consequences of water damage include rusting, rotting, discoloration, and the growth of mold.
    • Mold Damage: Mold can appear within 24-48 hours after water damage occurs. Mold spores require moisture and a food source to grow, which can be found in various materials in the home. As mold grows, it breaks down and destroys the surfaces it is on. Mold resulting from water damage can cause structural damage, reduce air quality, and increase allergens. Individuals who are susceptible may experience severe allergic reactions and respiratory distress.
