With unexpected July rain in San Diego, SERVPRO of San Diego Bay SW/Coronado has been receiving a number of calls regarding potential water damage caused by leaking roofs.  

San Diego County and it's surrounding counties are known for having beautiful weather year round.  A lot of times the rain is a welcome sight, but along with traffic accidents, roof leaks are common after a good San Diego storm, especially in the summer months.

If you have water stains that come across the ceilings or run down the walls, the cause is probably a leaking roof.  The hard part in tracking down the roof leak, is that you usually need a rain storm to detect it, which makes it especially hard in San Diego. 

Listed below is a 5 Star google from a Coronado resident who had a roof leak after a storm.

IICRC Standards

"We had a wonderful experience with SERVPRO and its owner, Scott.  We called Scott after discovering a flood in the crawl space under our house.  He was very nice and was over to our house within 20 minutes!  He surveyed the damage and gave us his honest, professional opinion.  We felt he was very trustworthy and there was no question that he knew his stuff.  We also appreciated the willingness to work in a 24" crawl space.  We proceeded with his recommendations and everything is working perfectly now.  

The plumber he recommended was also very reasonable priced, quick, and professional.  

Hopefully we never have another flood but if we do we will definitely call Scott!"
