Leaky Roofs Caused by Constant Rain

8/31/2021 (Permalink)

With the relentless series of storms we've seen since last December, SERVPRO of Lodi has seen a marked increase in water damage from roof leaks. Roof leaks can be a challenge to deal with! A roof leak generally happens at the worst possible time, typically during the peak of a heavy rain/windstorm.

Roofs will leak for a number of reasons, including shoddy construction, holes made by animals, missing shingles thanks to intense wind and rain, problems with plumbing vents, damaged flashing, and clogged and overflowing gutters. Consider the age of the roof, too. It may be so old and worn that it’s time for a proper replacement. Additionally, skylights and chimneys traditionally leak because they’re essentially sealed holes in the roof! There's a phrase: there's 2 types of skylights, those that leak and those that will....

Typically you’ll see a stain on a wall or ceiling that’ll give you an idea you have a leak coming from somewhere. In extreme cases SERVPRO of Lodi has been called out when the ceiling has already come crashing down. The insulation in attics is very absorbent and can hold quite a bit of water; a slow leak can sometimes take weeks to reveal itself, usually with a loud crash and ceiling drywall and insulation covering everything in the house!

The best time to trace where the leak is coming from is to examine its trail as best you can when it’s raining outside. SERVPRO of Lodi has the tools to help track the leak to it's source. Once it's found a roofer can come by and either temporarily tarp the roof or get it repaired if the rains stopped!

Flooding in San Joaquin Delta

7/3/2019 (Permalink)

The past two winters the San Joaquin Delta area experienced flooding that they hadn't seen in over 30 years.

Flooding is the most common natural disaster in the United States, affecting all 50 states. Flooding typically occurs when there is a failure of water control structure, such as a levee, or when water due to rain and/or snow melt accumulates faster than it can be absorbed or carried away by a river.  San Joaquin County faces flooding risk from both of these causes.

In the early 1900s, many natural wetlands in the San Joaquin Valley were drained for agricultural use. A system of levees was introduced to prevent water from flooding the natural wetlands. 

In the San Joaquin Valley, there are four major rivers that flow into the San Joaquin River. Melting snow pack from the Sierra Nevada as well as rainwater is carried through these rivers until they drain into the San Joaquin Delta.  In a normal year, reservoirs hold the water until it can be released in a controlled manner downstream, but high precipitation can fill the reservoirs.  Even on clear days, solar radiation can melt the snowpack, potentially overwhelming the reservoirs.
