What Could Be Causing the Water Leak in Your Walls?


After looking for indications of water damage in your walls, you still must identify the cause and find the source of the leak. To do that, it is possible to begin by inspecting the interior plumbing system and external materials like downspouts, sprinklers, flashing, and caulking.

Issues With Internal Plumbing 

If you notice a small increase in the water meter reading, odds are you might have faulty plumbing in the house. Leaks occur once pipes become worn in some areas or the joining that’s in between pipes becomes weak. They need immediate attention, particularly if you are experiencing a pipe that’s leaking through your ceiling, which may be hazardous.

Exterior Material Failures

If you aren’t able to find the core cause of the issue inside your home, head outdoors and inspect your exterior materials. They’re categorized as below-grade or above-grade, which refers to their position that is relative to the ground.

  • Exterior above-grade problems might involve clogged downspouts and gutters, deteriorating flashing, and ineffective caulking. Check those spaces for leaks and immediately address the problems found.
  • Exterior below-grade issues may range from improper drainage from your downspouts, damaged sprinkler pipes, french drains, or grading sloping toward your house. They affect walls constructed below grade such as your basement; therefore, make sure that you regularly inspect them for problems.

Say Bye-Bye to Leaks

When you notice various indications of hidden leaks such as a water stain on your drywall and paint bubbling on the wall, water damage is imminent. Wall leaks may wreak havoc on your house and lead to extensive water damage if left untreated. Therefore, while it’s possible to find the leak and the source on your own, you can save money, effort, and time on your water bill by contacting professionals.

The proper water damage restoration contractor offers a detailed evaluation of your issue and covers the most appropriate option to homeowners. That includes finding the leak inside the wall, identifying the source of the leak, and replacing or repairing any broken parts – preventing more damage while getting all things back to normal as soon they can.
