Spring. Soon, the air will be filled with the smell of lily of the valley and lilac. The North Shore does spring in great style. It is getting warmer by the day. Even the ice that can be stubbornly persistent on the North Shore is beginning to melt.

Did I just mention melting ice? While spring is good news, melting ice on your roof is just the opposite. If your roof has been strained with the snow and ice over winter, it may develop a leak. Foundations and gutters are also strained by changes in weather.

As the temperatures get warmer at the beginning of spring, the leaking will become more noticeable. This is because the warmer outdoor temperatures cause expansion in the cracks that may have formed, and the water run-off from melting ice will seep faster through these cracks into your attic or basement or from a faulty gutter into your walls.

Even if you cannot see the water seepage itself, the damage it causes will soon come to your attention. Water seepage causes damage to ceiling, moldings and floors as well as to the paint on interior and exterior walls.

If you notice a brownish discoloration, often circular in shape, on your ceiling or floor, that is a possible sign of water damage. This discoloration mostly occurs along the edge of that is in contact with an outer wall and along board seams.

For walls, the water damage is in the form of peeling or bruised paint work, water spots, moisture or dampness and discoloration.

Recurrence of water damage will undo all the work that you may put into restoring your home. At WORKS, we understand the importance of curbing the problem from the source. It’s not just about repainting your walls, replacing flooring or putting in new ceiling panels. We get rid of the mold and remaining.
