Water intrusion and construction defects are a very serious matter. Here in Portland, Oregon, Vancouver, Washington and the surrounding areas are experiencing countless issues due to water and wind driven rain damage. Senior living facilities, apartments, condominiums, townhomes, hotels, commercial buildings are especially vulnerable to these issues as typically the builder subcontracts the exterior envelope work and wall assembly process, therefore resulting in corners and costs being cut.
Common telltale signs of siding failure that can cause rain or water coming inside the home or through the windows or doors are:
- Leaking windows and doors
- Interior trim swelling
- Brown drops of water on window trim
- Water coming inside windows and doors from wind driven rain
- No WRB (Weather Resistant Barrier)
- No flashing
- Reverse flashing
- Flashing caulked in (No Egress)
- Swelling boards
- Huge gaps or spacing in the joints/seams
- Shrinking boards
- Corners of siding boards cracking
- Chalking/fly dust
- Dry-rot/Mushrooms on boards
Common repairs due to these issues are windows and doors replacement, siding repair, siding replacement, trim replacement, dry rot repair, mold remediation, decking replacement due to failing waterproof decking systems and coatings, roofing, waterproofing, and flashing integration among others.
