Roof Leaking

Roof leaks are highly underestimated by homeowners all across Connecticut. A major reason why this happens is that many roof leaks are deceptive. In so many cases, the areas where stains and water can be seen are not actually accessible. Especially when there is roof damage that can mask a leak.
Professional roof leaking repair specialists at Green Restoration fully understand how dangerous water is. You should never go on top of your roof and look for water leak sources alone. We offer reliable, fast roof leaking repair and leak taction services for all Connecticut residents, together with homeowners in Westchester County, NY. Contact Green Restoration experts at any point of day or night to arrange an inspection. We need to see the extent of the damage to tell you what the best course of action is.

Preventing Wood Rot And Mold With Timely Roof Leaking Repairs

It is challenging to find roof leak origins when the roof’s underside is hidden, as with the vaulted ceilings. Water can easily travel a long distance from where it initially enters your home. Small leaks are often not even noticeable even during prolonged rain fall periods. 

When a substantial leak occurs, ceiling discoloration soon follows. It is always essential to identify roof leaking as quickly as possible. A failure to do this can lead to the growth of mold and the wood in your roof’s structure can quickly rot. 

After the leak was located, which might require the use of special equipment, our technicians measure reference points, like the ridge and the chimney. This allows us to transfer the actual roof leak location. 

An extra thing to remember – Whenever roof leaking is repaired, all water entry points have to be fixed. The best example of this is shingles, which can often lead to leaks when they are damaged, cracked, or torn.

After any water damage, your main focus must be safety. You should ask yourself if it is safe to stay in your house. Look out for electrical hazards and wet materials in the house that can cause slipping.

Once you’ve decided on whether it is safe in the house, you can move on with the dos and don’ts of water damage.

What To Do After A Flooding

  • Remove any excess water using a mop

  • Wipe the water from wooden furniture after removing table top items and lamps

  • Remove any wet cushions or upholstery

  • Turn the air conditioner on so that it gets completely dry

  • Move any art objects you have to a dry and safe place

  • Gather any loose items present on the floor

  • If you have coloured rugs, then remove them from the wet carpets

What To Not Do After A Flooding

  • Don’t leave any wet fabric in place

  • Do not leave magazines and books or other items on the floor

  • Do not use your household vacuum to remove the water

  • Avoid using household appliances or the television

  • Do not turn the ceiling fixture when it is wet, and do not go in the room where the ceiling is saggy

Water mitigation can come from many different sources and events, but there is something common with them all. The first thing is that water damage is one of the main reasons many house owners claim insurance every year. It is also one of the reasons why the insurance rate keeps on rising.

The second thing in common is that, if ignored, it can lead to hazards, so handling it right away is very important. Water damage restoration and mitigation services also include:

  • Water and fire mitigation

  • Water cleanup

  • Floor water mitigation

  • Water damage repairing

  • Floor restoration and water remediation

The amount of damage that occurred in your house determines the time it will take for the restoration to take place. Usually, a normal-sized room takes 72 hours for drying. Once it gets dry, it can take a week for mildew and mold removal, and then comes construction, which takes another couple of weeks.

The entire process can take anywhere from two weeks to a month, depending on the damage caused.
