Ice Dam Results In Roof Leak

A West Michigan homeowner experienced an ice dam that resulted in a roof leak. The leak heavily effected the ceiling, walls, and carpet of the home. In order to properly dry the water damage, the drywall had to be removed. Once the structure is fully dried, the drywall is replaced.

Ceiling Falling In

If a water loss can be contained to one level, that often results in far less damage than a multiple level loss. When water begins seeping through to another floor, the ceiling will begin to fall in creating an additional mess.

Warped Wood Ceiling

Moisture and a wood ceiling are not a good combination. When a boiler pipe burst, a mixture of standing water and condensation caused this homeowner's wood ceiling to warp. The ceiling was not salvageable and had to be removed to further dry any remaining moisture.

Condensation On Ceiling

A variety of different things can follow a pipe break. It is not uncommon for condensation to be produced by a pipe carrying hot water. A residential boiler line burst produced condensation all throughout the home, further effecting the drywall and ceiling.

Pipe Burst

As a homeowner, this is never a site that you want to see. The boiler line had burst while the homeowners were out of town, resulting in a large amount of damage. By the time the break was discovered, enough damage had occurred to require extensive demolition of effected drywall and ceiling.

Crawl Space Pipe Break

When a pipe breaks in a crawlspace, it isn't as noticeable as a pipe break in a kitchen. That is the case for this West Michigan homeowner.

Regularly inspect your home, especially during the winter months, to ensure nothing goes unnoticed. If you discover a broken pipe, we are here to help!
