Damage Inspections – Professional Water Damage Repair Done Fast
Perhaps it’s a simple brown spot, or an entire ceiling cave-in, once the water starts entering a home, the priority becomes getting it to stop. The best place to start if you want a quality water damage repair is to contact a reputable roofer like Peak Roofing & Construction to find and fix the source of the leak. We provide thorough water damage inspections and repairs in Frisco, Plano, and throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth and Austin, TX areas.
At the same time, there are some basic steps you can take to determine the extent of the damage.
Start with a water damage inspection
The primary goal of a water damage inspection is to identify every area of your attic or home interior affected by water. Left untreated, mold or mildew easily begins to grow, and damage becomes worse when untreated. A thorough inspection identifies the needed work and get started with drying things out. In addition, it provides important information that will be useful to the insurance adjuster and, hopefully, speed up the process.
Be sure to take photos and videos to document the water damage. These photos can be used to show the insurance company as part of your claim. When a Peak Roofing & Construction professional comes out to assess the leak and perform the water damage repair, they will take photos as well, including damaged areas you can’t easily see such as remote sections of the attic.
Typically, Peak professionals start at the top and work their way down. They are looking for damp areas, wet ceilings, water-soaked insulation, and ductwork that looks suspicious.
“I was so relieved to find out Peak could handle my water damage work. Jared coordinated it all so I only had to talk with one person. He made it easy.”
Assessing the severity of mold
Mold spreads quickly in dark, moist places and has a reputation for being difficult to find. It frequently starts growing inside walls, inside insulation, or even vents. In extreme cases, specialists with full respiratory protection are necessary. The best way to avoid mold is to treat it early.
When interior damage occurs, Peak examines the main area of the house looking at ceilings and feeling along walls for damp or “mushy” spots. Wood floors may look warped or appear darker in spots and carpets are damp to the touch.
