Roof Damage On Chicago Apartments Can Lead To Flooding

Many of the apartment buildings in Chicago are among the oldest structures in the city. While this adds some historical value to the skyline, it does not always mean that the buildings get as maintained as they should. While you might not be responsible for the upkeep of the structural integrity of the apartment building, damage to the roof could allow flooding to occur in your apartment below, which requires fast and immediate response on your end to protect your belongings and property as much as possible.

While someone owns the building you purchased your Chicago apartment from, their failure to upkeep on potential risks to the roof can create breaches in the material that allows runoff and rainfall to penetrate directly into the ceiling area of your apartment beneath. Our SERVPRO professionals can respond quickly to flooding situations in Chicago, working to avert a further crisis with the emergency board up or tarping services for the penetration points and offering effective mitigation strategies to protect the things you value most in your apartment.

Many apartment owners do not add in coverage for flooding to their property primarily because of their residence being so far above potential flood zones. In situations like this where flooding can occur, it is vital then for mitigation to begin as quickly as possible to limit your out of pocket expenses to restore the damage to your unit.

Our SERVPRO estimator can work quickly to determine the full scope of the damage and communicate what your property needs after this emergency. We can work quickly to begin extraction of floodwater and dry up damaged elements with our initial visit, beginning the process of restoring the unit completely.

While you cannot account for the possibility of flooding in your apartment building, knowing whom to call when disaster strikes can save you time and money. Our SERVPRO of Evergreen Park / South Chicago City emergency response team is standing by 24/7 to help at (773) 337-3900.
