Rain deluge in Cumming, GA? Water damage in Alpharetta? The Forsyth County area gets its share of severe storm damage and protecting your residence or commercial property should be a top priority, since in most cases, real estate can be one of your most valuable assets.

Rain damage, which leads to water damage, attacks a home in one of two ways: either it hits with the immediate force of a powerful storm or it causes hidden damage that sits undetected for long periods only to come crashing down with a bang when least expected. Sometimes, it only reveals itself in increased respiratory problems: water soaked insulation and rafters become breeding grounds for mold and mildew. Unseen to the naked eye, harmful bacteria can cause illness in the building’s occupants. The EPA warns that “failure to remove contaminated materials and reduce jane moisture and humidity can lead to serious long term health risks”. Regardless of how it is discovered, if left untended, a small area quickly grows into major structural compromise. Call Cumming, GA roofing company, Cornerstone Roofing, for a free evaluation on ways to prevent such problems before they happen.
Not all rain and water damage is to be blamed on storms, however.
