It has been raining all day today.... it gave me the idea
to blog a bit about water leaks. That is after I have me some pop-corn without dirtying any more dishes. Here is one idea...
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 wait.
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.
