Hurricane season is upon us, and along with the increase of summer rain, we all want to make sure that our houses remain safe, secure, and dry.
What can you do to be ready?
Approximately 60% to 70% of moisture intrusion occurs at our windows. This is due to failures within the construction of the windows, poor window design and components, as well as improper or missing perimeter sealant or caulking. Wood framed windows also contribute to this problem, since many window manufacturers use soft, untreated wood components that quickly rot due to the moist Floridian climate. With so many weaknesses, how can we make sure that our windows are not a possible cause of water damage in our homes?
At Bowman Building Assessment, we inspect houses with the latest technology to determine whether water damage is occurring or is likely to occur. With over 14 years of experience, you can trust us to help you be prepared for hurricane season, and make sure your home remains safe, secure, and dry.
