Water Stains in a Sacramento Ceiling –
Who Do You Call First?
One day you walk into a room and notice that there is a water stain in the ceiling. It may be large or small, wet or dry, or first or second story but it one day just appeared. Who do you call first to fix the problem.
There are a couple of things to consider when faced with a water stain in your ceiling.
It is important that you contact someone with experience in this sort of water damage repair. Finding a qualified general contractor will go a long way in making things go smoothly. Not only will the contractor be able to find the leak and repair it; he can repair the damages that the leak created.
Of course you can do the repairs and contracting yourself!
Repairing the water stains would mean contacting a roofer or plumber for the repair of the source of the water. Cleaning up the mess that the leak created will involve all sorts of trades: Insulation, drywall, electrical, woodworking, flooring, and paint. You will need to schedule, inspected, and follow-up and all the other things that need to be done.
Either way, contacting a general contractor or doing it yourself, the repair needs to be done right away. Ideally the water damage needs to be dried out within 48 hours if possible. Otherwise, mold and mildew can begin to form.
