At Rocky Mountain Restoration, we know how important it is to identify water damage before you buy a home. This is especially true in areas like the attic, which tends to be more prone to water damage over time. If you’re not sure if there has been water damage in the past or there is current water damage that needs to be addressed, then look out for the signs below.
1. Brown Spots on the Ceiling
If you notice brown spots on the ceiling of your Arizona home, this is a sign that water has been present. Even if it has dried, it doesn’t mean the damage is gone. There could still be mold and weakened wood present, which can be detrimental to the safety of your home.
2. Poorly Maintained Attic
Did the last owners take good care of their attic? You should be able to tell by doing a quick scan of the area. If you see any brown spots or areas that are damp, then these need to be addressed right away. By having this damaged restored, you can strengthen your attic and prevent additional water damage in the future.
3. Roof Damage
If there is damage on your roof, then you can almost guarantee that water damage has occurred in your attic. In this situation, it’s important to have a contractor repair the damage to the roof before a restoration technician can address the water damage.
Any beads of moisture on the wall mean that there is no proper ventilation in the attic. Unfortunately, even small bits of moisture like this can lead to a bigger problem over time. It’s crucial to have ventilation installed and water damage remedied as soon as possible.
