Flood Damage Seattle – Roof Punctures
SERVPRO's How-to for Your Seattle Home's Water Damage
We have seen recent storms roll through the Seattle area bringing high winds, lots of rain as well as snow at higher elevations. Flooding occurs under these conditions often, either from swollen rivers or debris puncturing the roof of a home. Gallons of water can pour through a hole in a homeowner's roof in a matter of minutes, soaking insulation, leaking through walls onto floors, and more. The damage and the mess can be overwhelming for many people.
SERVPRO has certified technicians for flood damage in the Seattle area, ready to respond in less than 4 hours. We support Seattle and the surrounding area. Our professional teams are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to assist homeowners' houses that have been damaged by storms and experienced flooding.
Repairing Damage from Roof Punctures
Once it is safe to go on the roof, SERVPRO can arrange temporary repairs or place tarps on a damaged roof to prevent additional water, moisture, and even animals from entering the attic through the hole in the roof. Water entering through the roof absorbs contaminants in the insulation and carries these contaminants through cavities in the walls to the floor, where the water then spreads out over the floor. Ceilings may also indicate water damage, and the ceiling could collapse from the weight of the water.
With the chemicals from insulation and building materials absorbed by the water, carpeted floors can also experience permanent staining. Drywall may swell and become deformed. In two-story homes, water can penetrate lower levels to the basement.
Our SERVPRO team evaluates all of these potential damages from interior floods caused by storms, develops a restoration plan, and reviews the work required along with the costs with both the homeowner and the insurance adjuster. Our objective is to repair before replacing to minimize the total cost and the time needed to complete the job. We aim to return the client's home as quickly as possible to its original condition, "Like it never even happened."
