Warping of the Walls by Water Damage

Water damage causes exposure to excessive moisture or water infiltration into the wall, and the result is a warped wall. This common issue occurs when water seeps into the structural components of a building, such as drywall or wood framing, leading to swelling, distortion, or warping of these materials. Which is why you have to face costly repairs and structural damage as well.

Perfect inspection, identification, and remediation of water damage by professionals can prevent further deterioration and maintain integrity. So without further ado, contact a restoration expert for your commercial and residential property.

Common Types of Water Damage that Causes Warping

Water damage causing warping of the wall needs immediate attention.
  • Roof Leaks: Allow water to penetrate into the walls, especially if it goes undetected for an extended period.
  • Plumbing Leaks: Burst pipes, leaky faucets, or faulty plumbing can result in water seeping into walls.
  • Floods: Whether from natural disasters or plumbing failures, can saturate walls with water.
  • High Humidity: Prolonged exposure to high humidity levels can lead to moisture absorption by walls.
  • Foundation Issues: If the foundation of a building is compromised, it can allow water to seep into the basement or crawl space.
  • Gutter Problems: Clogged or damaged gutters can result in rainwater overflowing and running down the exterior walls.
  • Backup Sewer Systems: Sewer backups contaminate the building and cause extensive damage.
