How Quickly Can Flooding Happen in My San Jose Home?
After severe storms, damage to your roof can leave you vulnerable to flooding that can begin almost immediately in adverse weather conditions.
You do not have to think back far to think of the last time a storm was powerful enough to cause structural damages to many of the businesses and homes in San Jose. Once vulnerabilities exist in the exterior of your property, it is much more likely that flooding scenarios can result. Especially in the cases of roof damage, runoff and wind-driven rain can quickly find its way through these penetration points.
You may not realize the full extent of flood damage in San Jose homes like yours if the situation resulted from roof damages. There is a portion of time when homeowners might be oblivious to the structural damage, allowing flooding to worsen before signs show in the living space beneath the attic. Any pooling water within this upper storage space can move quickly because of unfinished surfaces that can absorb water quickly and push it through the ceiling systems to impact floors beneath it.
