Roof Leak caused by storm
Roof Leaks are often hard to detect. In this commercial building, the roof is made of corrugated tin. While these roof coverings are known to be tough, storms have strong winds and that is what lifted the tin and allowed the water to leak. This went undetected for many months and eventually the owner called, after seeing mold. When SERVPRO arrived and accessed, the drywall and wall coverings were removed at the affected area. This picture shows that even the heavy 2 x 6 framing is affected by mold. When SERVPRO does these mitigations and repairs, the mold area must be removed further back than the visible issue appears. That is why it is very important to have repairs teams. Customers really appreciated only having to file 1 claim and get the problems resolved as well as the repairs completed.
