Different types of water damage
Flooding - During a strong rainstorm, water can penetrate the roof shingles and leak into you home. Nearby lakes, rivers or even streams can overflow and cause flooding that can wreak havoc on your property.
Whatever the case, water that seeps into your home will cause damage. Water can rot wood and cause mold growth that will add up to costly repairs.
Burst Pipes - Most people do not examine the condition of the pipes in their home, nor do they know what a worn out pipe looks like. It may be worth it to hire an expert to evaluate the condition of the pipes in your home.
Sewer Backup - Heavy rains can lead to sewer backup that leave your home full of sewage. The smell alone is bad enough, but this problem can affect the foundation of your home. Any type of water damage can negatively affect the value of your property.
