Ceiling water damage can come from a few sources. If the room is on the top story of a home, it could be from a leaky roof caused by rain or melting ice/snow in the winter months. If there is a bathroom above the ceiling with wall damage, it could be from a burst pipe or cracks in the floorboards.
One of the easiest ways to spot water damage is water stains on walls. Make sure to also check around door and window frames. An unusual stain could be a sign of a leaky pipe or drain inside the wall.
Repairing walls from water damage includes repairing or replacing base covings, insulation, and the wall material itself. The scope of repair after water damage has taken place depends upon the extent of damage and the composition of materials used to build the wall.
In general, if the wall material is wallboard or drywall, it should be discarded because it acts like a sponge, drawing water up past the flood level when wet. If the wall material is plaster or paneling, it can often be saved by drying it out properly.
