A Leak Caused By Solar Panels
Eastor Su wanted an easier commute to her job in Washington, D.C. Living in Alexandria provided an ideal solution: the picturesque town is cited as one of the best places to live in Virginia. Eastor was thrilled to find the perfect home for her. However, when the roof began leaking, her new sanctuary was at risk of becoming an expensive problem. As she dug further into the issue, she realized that an improper installation of her neighbor’s solar panels was to blame for the leak. At that point, water had been leaking in for about five years, and the damage to the interior had already taken root.
It was time to call a professional to fix the issue.
From Leaking Roof to Waterlogged Interior
It quickly became evident that the problem was worsening. There was damage under the stairway, with the plaster showing cracks and the ceiling beginning to bow. Eastor knew it was imperative to get it fixed before further damage unfolded.
Eastor reached out to several companies, many of whom refused to work on a flat roof. Exterior Medics, however, was happy to work on a proposal for a solution that would give Eastor the safe home she needed. Though several companies provided quotes, Eastor felt that Exterior Medics was the most direct with her, giving her a detailed proposal that outmatched every other company. She also felt that the scope of service and quality of work Exterior Medics could do far surpassed the competition. Her decision was made: it was time to move forward with the roofing project.
