Rain Water Damages Wood Floor in Entry. Bellingham, WA.
The driving rain of Northwest Washington. We don't get down pours. Our wind driven rain comes in on an angle. Poor planning and design can lead to some unhappy home owners.
Our, unsuspecting client came home after work to find a large puddle of water near the front door. Initially, it was a mystery and we were called to help diagnose the problem. We extracted the water and began to dig into the cause. No water lines were near the issue and the line had yet to be drawn from the rain storm to the damage.
We worked the issue and found that the wind driven rain had forced itself into the home through an imperfectly sealed and door that also lacked protection from the rain. The home owner was thankful we had diagnosed the issues and was able to make thenecessary changes to the entry to erase the issue.
We also saved the hardwood floor!
