The main causes of water damage include flooding, sewer backups, broken pipes and leaky plumbing fixtures, poor maintenance and changing weather conditions. A construction or design defect can also be the cause of water damage: for example, a defect in the tightness of the construction, a poor design of the drainage networks, a counterspend of balconies or sidewalks. In most cases water damage affects equally common and private portions, thus it is one of the most complex loss to adjust.
