It has been raining all day today.... it gave me the idea to blog a bit about water leaks
Fussing to try and find a leak as soon as it happens is
something that could put you in the hospital. Never go on top of your roof on a
windy or rainy day and never, I mean never go up there alone.
-Gutters that have not been cleaned can cause the water to
build up during rain gutter leaks will cause eave and facial to rot leading to expensive repairs.
-Ventilation boots are the creators of another type of leak.
The sun destroys the rubber boot causing a leak in the ceiling.
-The installation or replacement of flashing around chimneys, against siding
and others will decrease the chance and or put an end to a leak.
-Exterior rot around your windows usually caused by sun and
water damage, when not maintained, will
end up allowing water to penetrate inside the wall. Remember that where there
is wet wood there are bugs also the possibility of finding large colonies of
mildew, black mold and other deadly bacterias normally undetectable until their
population is large and the home inhabitants begin to get sick.
-Other leaks are interior coming from the upper bathroom or
laundry room and `your immediate attention is always less expensive than to
It is always cheaper to call your handyman and ask him to spot
and fix a leak as soon as you find it. Most of us will give you a free quote on
how much all your repairs will be.

I was very young when my Dad started teaching me about the use of a hammer and nails. I was so interested that I made a life career out of it. Today I find myself very knowledgeable of most phases of house building, therefor I provide the following services to the Counties around me under Wades Handyman. This recession brought us down financially forced us to get rid of our vehicles and some of the equipment but they could not take my Faith, health, knowledge and experience away.
