Collapsed Ceiling

8/4/2022 (Permalink)

collapsed ceiling The large amounts of water entering the home caused the ceiling to collapse.

A significant rain storm exposed some literal holes in this homeowners roof. The water was able to penetrate the roof, getting into the attic and ultimately reaching the drywall that made up the ceiling. The ceiling took so much water that eventually it was too much to handle and it collapsed into the living room. As you can see from the staining on the ceiling in the photo, the water damage was much more than just the area that collapsed. SERVPRO ended up removing the entire ceiling in the living room as well as the blown in insulation. There was additional damage to one of the exterior walls, that would end up being removed as well as the insulation. However, this was no match for SERVPRO as they were able to get all of the demolition done in one day and then set the necessary drying equipment. In just a matter of a few days SERVPRO had them dried out and ready for reconstruction.
