Wet Ceiling Repair
There are many clear signs of a wet ceiling, and they can be disastrous if ignored. Water ingress, ceiling discoloration, and sagging drywall are all potential indicators of a wet ceiling. It is important to address these issues professionally and promptly, as ignoring a wet ceiling can cause lasting structural damages.
Causes of Wet Ceilings
Wet ceilings are not the same as roof leaks. A roof leak occurs when water is leaking through the roof of a structure. Wet ceilings, on the other hand, happens when water is trapped within the ceiling. Wet ceilings are caused by multiple different factors.
Trapped moisture from an external source, a leaking foundation, or plumbing issues are the most common causes of a wet ceiling. The fall and winter seasons in Vancouver are also a big cause of roof leaks and wet ceilings. Water gets trapped underneath shingles and roofing material and then is waterlogged inside the ceiling.
If you are experiencing any of these issues, it is important to consult a professional as soon as possible.
Signs of a Ceiling Leak
A wet ceiling can be immediately detected by water ingress and discoloration. Water ingress on the ceiling means that water is flowing into the structure and is trapped inside the foundation. Discoloration happens when some of the paint has worn away due to water damage. The discoloration is often very clear and looks yellow or brownish.
