Could Recent Flooding in Newport Cause My Roof Problems?

Homes in flood waters Regardless of how your property was affected by flood waters, SERVPRO is the effective company for water removal services. Call right away.

Many Structures in Newport Sustain Flood Damage in Unexpected Locations, Including Upper Regions of the Property.

When flooding occurs in our area around Newport, the water forcefully pushes against anything in its path. This includes neighborhood homes and businesses. Additionally, the effects of such intense forces that weaken the structural members are compounded by elevated humidity that can leave a property susceptible to secondary damage.

Property owners might notice cracks in upper story walls or that the roof now leaks in their home after flooding transpires in the Newport area. The flooding may have twisted the frame, and humidity and an abundance of interior flooding often cause issues with fixtures, plaster, drywall, and paneling. These two conditions can intensify each other, making any pre-existing deficits even more pronounced. SERVPRO’s crew is skilled in mitigating the damages to walls and roofing. The integrity of your roof is crucial to the fitness of your house, especially during the winter months. The risk of ice dams developing increases when gaps exist between the outside and your home’s interior.  

SERVPRO performs various types of services on homes damaged by flooding. These include both internal and external repairs.

  •   Opening walls makes framework structures accessible to brace areas, so they no longer move out of alignment.
  •   We repair cracked areas and replace wallpapered or paneled sections. This can include ceilings.
  •   Repairs to the roof can include more than shingles. We may need to dry the attic crawl space with heaters and dehumidifiers or replace insulation before removing the protective tarp. 

SERVPRO of Newport & Bristol Counties knows how to work with you to restore roofing and other structural damage and make everything "Like it never even happened." Ensuring that your home’s structure becomes stable and secure is as important to us as it is to you. Call (401) 847-8145 for an evaluation of your house and expert guidance on your options.
