For any homeowner or even a business, big or small, you may experience a leak during a rainy day
or even notice a leak when sprinklers are on. If that is the case, you may be experiencing a exterior wall leak.
SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga will always be faster to any sized job. Our experts can rapidly assess the situation
and by process of elimination pin point the cause of the leak, if it is not yet discovered.
Some reasons for a potential exterior wall leak are:

Cracks in the stucco, potentially damaged in any way or general ware and tare.
If you have a wooden home, it could be weakened wood. It could potentially happen slowly over
long periods of time.
Holes, whether not noticed until it rains , or may have been hidden or blocked previously.
If you have cable wires, the seal around them could crack or even open if you accidentally
tugged on the cable.
Pipes that are routed from the exterior, over time due to thermal expansion expand and contract.
Which may cause an unforeseen problems in the future.

Any one of these potential issues, may leave a small enough gap for water to enter. Once water
enters any sized gap it then will always find a way to fill any other gap that it has access to.
Which is why SERVPRO of Sunland/Tujunga can help you, even to temporarily aid in stopping the water
from entering from rain, such as protecting the opening with a tarp. Once the leak is fixed our many
talented and dedicated personnel will help put your home or business back in order.
