Can a Leaking Ceiling Collapse?

It is possible for a leaking ceiling to collapse, although it’s not common. A leaking ceiling is a sign of water damage, which can weaken the structure of the ceiling over time. If the source of the leak is not identified and repaired promptly, the moisture can cause the ceiling to sag or even collapse.

Do roof leaks cause mold?

Yes, roof leaks can cause mold growth. When water from a leak enters your home, it can create a damp environment that is ideal for mold to grow. Mold spores can quickly spread and thrive in areas with excess moisture, including on and behind walls, under carpets, and on ceiling tiles.
