Signs of Water Damage

There are many signs indicating that water damage is occurring in your home. They include:

Sloping Ground

If you find that your floors have been stained with water, look outside and inspect your grounds. Specifically, evaluate the level of your property overall. If you notice that the ground around the rim of your building is sloping slightly downwards, then it’s likely that’s the cause of your water damage is coming from an unleveled property.

Broken Downspouts & Gutters

One of the most common signs indicating water damage involves broken downspouts and gutters. Apart from sloping, uneven grounds. Inspect outside downspouts and gutters that are designed to divert water away from your home. If any of these are leaking, then it’s probable that the source of your water damage is caused by these.


It’s obvious that a leaking roof is a clear sign of water damage. But it’s always a good thing to know where the leak is coming from. When the weather permits it, go on your roof and inspect shingles/tiles that might be cracked or missing. When you hire a contractor, it’s important that you indicate these areas to them. Roof damage that you don’t tend to now can develop into a bigger problem when hard-hitting storms pass by.

Windows & Doors

Look at your door frames from the outside. Do you notice any separations? What about soft spots indicating a window leak? If you notice a separation, even a small one, it can lead to humidity in your home, which can also lead to mold. Make it a regular habit to check each window or door frame regularly so that you can catch trouble areas right before bigger issues evolve.
