Are you worried that your ceiling might collapse? There are a few tell-tale signs that can help you determine if your ceiling is at risk. Small circles or blisters in a line caused by nails or screws, indicating that the sheet may be separating from the beam above it, is one sign. If you don't see any of these, you can still check for other signs. Grab a tape measure and an alcohol leveler.
Measure the height at which the ceiling meets the wall, then measure the height in the center of the room. If there is a difference of 12 mm or more, it could indicate that something has come loose. Using an alcohol leveler on the ceiling areas will confirm any unevenness in the ceiling. The lines that cross the ceiling should be straight.
It's also a good idea to check your ceiling once a month with a leveler. Place it at key points against the ceiling and look for any bubbles that are not in the center. This could be an indication that the ceiling is sunken. If you notice any of these signs, it's important to request roof damage repair as soon as possible to prevent serious damage to your home and potential injuries to you and your family.
Additionally, there shouldn't be any water on the ceiling unless you're in the habit of shooting water guns in the air.
