This year has been COLD, COLD, COLD. The worst...
Needless to say, I've had massive water damage to this house, when I feel pretty sure is due to ice-damns, and possibly condensation? The house is rather old I bought used.
I noticed the drywall at the top near every house corner has had water damage, which seems to match what happens with ice-damns.
I will probably have to have a mold specialist come in since i see black spots too.
While I am going to assume this will be hugely costly, and I'll need the whole drywalls and insulation replaced (maybe not the worst thing, as none of the cables upstairs here even has ethernet or ground cable, so I am so limited on use)...I'll try to get an electrician to re-wire the home while the drywall is replaced.
One of my biggest worries is after sinking in expensive repairs and reno.. .I"ll still have to worry again about ice-damns and the next round of water damage.
I keep hearing stories of contractors able to repair work, but have a tendency to never isolate the issue causing the problem to begin with. Curious who else has gone through this? Anyone been able to really stop an ice-damn issue without having to hire people every week to brush off snow? Not that I even count that as a real solution here...
