For instance, a waterlogged drywall ceiling will eventually fall down so it is important to figure out the problem and fix it quickly.

Ceiling Leaks Questions & Answers

Q: Do you have to cut down the ceiling to fix the leak?

A: It depends. Some leaks we can fix with a high degree of certainty that the problem is solved. Other times, for instance, when we reset a toilet, we don’t have that certainty. In those cases, we ask if you’d like us to cut a hole in the ceiling so we can be 100% certain or if you’d like to settle for reasonably certain and avoid having to deal with a ceiling repair.

Q: What if the tile in my shower is the source of the leak?

A: We do not repair or replace the tile. Usually, that is what needs to be done.

Q: Do you patch drywall?

A: No. Our plumbers do have several local drywall repair companies we can schedule for you.

Q: What if I’m not sure if the ceiling is leaking or not. I see a brown spot but the ceiling isn’t really wet?

A: A brown spot usually indicates a leak but it could be an old leak or fluke from water getting on a bathroom floor. A good way to decide is to trace the outline of the spot with a pencil and watch to see if the spot grows.
