When water damage symptoms are ignored 

It’s easy to delay maintenance on the exterior of our home is the greater Bellevue and Kirkland area until next year. But the reality is that we live in the Great Pacific Northwest and it rains a lot!  Minor problems can become big problems in a short period of time.  These photos are a perfect example of a poorly executed design and deferred maintenance.  A nondescript planter box has caused catastrophic to the supporting beam underneath as a result of material failure. The metal box had rusted out even though it was galvanized. Once it rusted the rest of the framing soon followed due to the prolonged exposure to moisture. 

Water Damage Repair and Restoration 

Moisture problems are a reality for those of us living in the great Pacific Northwest. It seems as though every year we enjoy record levels of precipitation. The prolonged exposure to moisture tests all components of our home’s exterior. It is very important to remain vigilant and address problem areas early when failures occur. Catching problems early will minimize the damage and reduce the likelihood of extensive restoration work as well as exposure to health concerns like black mold.
