Repairing ceiling water damage, whether it’s the results of a broken pipe, old roof, or torrential rain is especially necessary for the health and overall upkeep of your home. Left unaddressed, a water damaged ceiling will result in mold and a weakened structure. It doesn’t matter what the ceiling is made from, nothing can protect it against leaking water.
