Negligence on Repairs can Cause Serious Damage!
If your roof is damaged on in a storm, neglecting to do repairs can result in serious damage (such as shown in the photo). In this specific case, the property had a dilapidated and old roof that blew apart from winds, then was flooded by rains. The fault lies with failing to keep old buildings up to modern standards with repair and renovation. Mold can also develop in the affected home due to moisture, making restoration even more difficult and causing a potential living hazard. For these reasons as a property owner you must-
- Upkeep and renovate your property as to avoid such issues.
- Call for help immediately as the longer you wait, the worse the issue will get.
Whenever you suspect your roof is damaged or that you may have water damage from recent rains, don't hesitate to call SERVPRO of Hollywood Hills/Los Feliz at (323) 667-3100.
