Water Damage Detection In Your Home
It can be difficult to tell if you have water damage in your home. On some occasions, people go weeks, months, even years without knowing about the damage that is being done to the home. This can destroy your home. To ensure you can catch the water damage, here are a few things to keep an eye out for.
Signs of Water Damage
First one would be your foundation. Like any structure, without a strong foundation, it is most likely going to come crumbling down. Cracking of the foundation can allow water to run freely through the home. Generally, this is only a problem in older homes, but do not be fooled, it can happen to ANY home.
Another sign of damage is sagging. A sagging roof is usually caused from all of the pressure on top of the roof. Pressure can come from plenty of things, usually rain, sleet, snow, debris, too many shingles, etc. When you become aware of sagging, get it taken care of immediately. The roof has potential to collapse and you do not want to be under that when it comes crashing down. Sloping floors are another indication of too much water somewhere it shouldn’t be.
Siding that is becoming weak, starting to break off or even siding that no longer exists in an area is another big problem. By taking the siding away from a home, you are removing an entire layer of protection off of the home or business. Inspect window and door seals as well. Heat/air can easily leave the home through broken seals. Water can come in through these seals as well. Not only will your bills be higher, but you could have water damage, too!
