Water damage is a huge problem in North Carolina. In fact, if it is left too long, water damage can single-handedly take down your home. It usually starts simple, so you don’t think it is a big deal. Perhaps a tree branch fell on the corner of your home and damaged the roofing tiles. This might start a small leak in a corner that is easy to ignore. The problem is that, over time, this simple leak will wear away at the integrity of the walls and ceiling in your home, and it could even lead to a collapse eventually.
This is why it is extremely important not to dismiss water damage as a threat. If you take care of it early, you won’t have to worry about it again. Usually, at the first stages, water damage can be quickly repaired without requiring you to spend a great deal of money. It only becomes expensive when you let the problem go on for way too long. If you end up having to replace an entire section of the wall or floor because of water damage, it’s not going to be pretty. One good example of this is a home we heard about recently where a corner of the roof over a porch door had a small leak. Unfortunately water had been allowed to leak onto the door for years to the point where the door was so bloated from water damage that it would not even open anymore. Not only did we have to replace the door, but all of the wood paneling around it as well.
