Garage Ceilling Collapsing/Bowing? Wind Damage
Last edited 16/09/2019 - 16:55
I noticed my garage ceiling is collapsing, it was quite windy last few days so i think that caused a lot of pressure to build up in the roof space and push down the ceiling, that's my impression,
wondering if ppl agree, and if anyone knows the ceilling is it just attached with glue to the frame or nails and glue etc?
I have home insurance so i'm going to give them a call tomorrow and i hope they can cover it? As anyone had wind damage and home insurance has covered it?
Photos are below
I checked the attic and it doesnt seem like the frame is dislodged or broken or water damage,
photo two you can see that the ceiling is bent in the middle
photo three is where you can see the ceiling come down.
Note photo 1 you can't actually see the roof there- the actual roof is further away and you can only see the frame
I;m a basic handyman, so should i just do it myself (i think my claim will increase my insurance by prob around $350 a year due to no claim bonus), prop some supports staple gun and glue and woolah?
Edit: also my home is 4dbr double brick one storey house, but i'm insured for buuliding costs of $420000, is that a bit too much?
