Over the years, we’ve found water entering buildings from many different sources. I can’t tell you how many times we’ve been called to a residence with a reported roof leak that turns out to be a second story bath tub or toilet that has overflowed and left water dripping from the ceiling below it. We’ve also received reports of roof leaks that originate from attic mounted AC units with dripping condensation lines. And then there is the skylight in a smaller bathroom that collects condensation and drips water after the resident takes a long hot shower during the colder months of the year…..
We do find many legitimate water entry sources such as leaky roofs and decks, windows and siding, metal chimney “caps” and more recently, incorrectly installed rain gutters on homes built with no “overhang” or eaves. Ground water can also be the culprit in some cases.
We do provide a “water testing” service of the suspected area for the few times that we cannot easily identify a water entry issue by a visual inspection.
As each water entry problem can be unique to the specific building, we locate the source of the water entry and then provide the client with detailed proposal to make the necessary remedial repairs.
