Summertime Blues. It may not seem like summer would be the busiest time for water damage issues, but we are involved in several projects in the end of July where the crux of the job is repair of rot or other issues related to improper waterproofing.
It's not always the most rewarding part of our job either. Craftsman love the feeling of building something that was not there before, and while it is nice to put a family back in their home knowing it is going to protect them from the elements and stand tall for many years to come, it's just not quite the same when you leave something that looks the same as it did when you started the work.
The earlier you detect and address water damage issues, the better your chances of mitigating tremendous costs. And addressing the issues in the summer months means putting the building back together with materials that are thoroughly dry and have a chance to cure before staving off the elements again when winter rolls back around.
