Why Rapid Response Will Save You Money
You may be tempted to delay repairs to a damaged roof, chimney or gutter. But, left open to the weather, your roof, chimney or gutter will deteriorate rapidly, and place in danger the rafters, sheathing, insulation and, eventually, your ceiling and walls. Water seeping into your walls can also reach electrical systems and cause fires.
It can take up to 18 months for water damage from a damaged roof to show up as a ceiling, wall or window leak! So make the repairs as soon as possible to prevent further damage and avoid more expensive repairs down the road.
