A broken water main caused a minor flood inside the Roanoke Rescue Mission’s main dining area early Friday, damaging ceiling tiles and covering floors with more than 2 inches of water.
This is the second time this year that the Rescue Mission has dealt with a water-related emergency. Earlier, the sprinkler system burst in the women’s and children’s center as pipes thawed from a frigid cold spell. The water damaged three rooms, floors and equipment in the Information Technology area. Repairs to that area, which cost about $15,000, had just been completed last week.
Due to weather, more roofs will be leaking. As a result more drop ceiling will be damaged and will have to be replaced. Why continue to purchase ceilings that have to be replaced when wet.
Our ceiling tiles are 100% waterproof and never have to be replaced. Check out our website and vast inventory for everything you need for the last ceiling tile system you ever have to buy.
