Reasons Why Your Ceiling is Leaking
You're sitting on your couch and --suddenly-- you feel a water drop on your head. The cause? A leaking ceiling.
When repairing ceiling leaks it's necessary to determine the source of the leak in order to properly address the water damage problem. Here are some common sources of ceiling water damage:
Bathroom Plumbing Leak
A bathroom plumbing leak or a toilet overflow can spread through the drywall, and if the bathroom is on the second level it will cause the ceiling below your bathroom to leak. Look around toilets, tubs, and sinks for signs of pooling water.
Roof leaks happen for a number of reasons, such as storms, broken shingles, clogged gutters, and damaged vents. If the leak only occurs during bad weather, then that's a good sign your ceiling water damage is being caused by rainwater entering through the roof. A good sign the water is coming from a roof leak is if the water is a brownish color. If there's an exposure in your roof, our professionals will cover the hole to prevent further water damage.
Leaking or Broken Pipes
Many pipes in the home are located within the ceilings and the attic. These areas of the home are often poorly insulated and can cause water damage from frozen pipes. Pipes also deteriorate over time, which causes them to leak or burst. If the water is clear, rather than stained, there's a good chance it's coming from a pipe or plumbing supply line. Consult a plumber to determine whether your pipes need to be replaced.
Sometimes appliances, such as water heaters and ac units, are located in attics. Water heaters contain 40-120 gallons of water, so if a water heater bursts it will flood your attic and potentially cause your ceiling to collapse. Ac units are built with drain lines, but when these drain lines get clogged they can overflow with water and cause a leak in your attic. Regularly inspect your attic to prevent water heater and ac unit leaks.

What To Do When There's a Leak In Your Ceiling
Repairing a ceiling leak is not a DIY job, which is why it's always best to consult water damage restoration professional. If you try to repair your ceiling without identifying the true source of the water damage, all your work will be for nothing because the water will continue to leak.
Identifying the true source of the leak is tricky because water doesn't just sit in one place, it likes to spread. So while water is dripping on your head in the living room, it might have actually originated from a bathroom or attic leak.
This is why finding the source of the leak requires a little professional investigation.
Our water damage repair professionals used infrared cameras to detect the water that's hiding in your drywall and is otherwise undetectable to the naked eye. With this equipment, we can trace the path of the water and find the true source of your ceiling leak.
Signs Of Ceiling Water Damage
An obvious sign you have a water damage situation on your hands is if you notice a standing pool of water, but sometimes water damage takes on different forms that aren't as obvious. Here are the telltale signs that you have ceiling water damage:
Water Stains On Your Ceiling
A roof leak will leave behind stains on walls and ceilings. The water stains are usually a brown, yellow, or rust color. You cannot paint over these stains until the water is completely dried and removed.
Damaged Wall Fixtures
A symptom that water has penetrated your walls, is damaged wall or ceiling fixtures, such as ceiling-mounted fans and lights.
Mold only takes 48 hours to go. If a leak goes undetected for a long period of time, this could lead to extensive mold growth. If you notice mold spots on your ceiling, consult a water damage and mold removal professional as the mold is harmful to breathe in.
