Sources of Water Damage
Water may enter a building by a number of routes. Water may come from external of internal sources. The water may be relatively clan or contain some degree of contamination.
 
Damage from wind storms or other cause may allow rain water to enter through the roofIce dams on sloped roofs can force water to travel under roofing material and into the building. 
 
Poor construction methods, faulty plumbing or water pipes that freeze and burst can result in water where it was never intended to be. The water may come from lines carrying potable (safe for drinking) water or the source could be a backed-up sewer lineFaulty appliances or damaged water beds may also be the cause of water damage. Flooding due to rising rivers or storm surge is another source.
 
The cause may due to accident, negligence or even intentional vandalism. A water loss is often associated with a fire loss due to the water used to control the fire.
 
High water table and capillary action may result in ground water rising into a building through the foundation. Hydrostatic pressure (the force of water in the ground outside a building) can push the water into a concrete foundation. From there water can find its way to other parts of the structure. 
 

Water damage may occur even without coming in contact with liquid water Hygroscopic (moisture absorbing) material will attract moisture from the air during prolonged periods of high humidity

Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any questions.

The town of Packwood has historically relied on the forest products industry as an economic engine, supplemented by government employment (via the National Forest and Park Services) and seasonal tourism. In the late 1990s, the Forest Service began consolidation of many ranger stations, with the result that Forest Service jobs moved to the town of Randle and the new Cowlitz Valley Ranger Station. Shortly thereafter, several factors, including the Asian financial crisis, decreased logging on federal lands, and depression in lumber prices, brought the closing of the Packwood Lumber Mill. Due to the limited economic opportunity, the town's housing consists heavily of summer housing for snowbirds, retirement homes, and vacation cabins. The influx of retirees and determination of long-time locals has led to a recent civic revival in the town, however. Several local organizations seek to promote the tourism opportunities of the town, improve tourist and vacation infrastructure, and plan for the long-term economic revitalization of the town. The decades-old Annual Packwood Flea Market now attracts tens of thousands during the Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, and the recently expanded White Pass Ski Area provides a steady flow of visitors during the otherwise tourism-slow winter months. A new art gallery, along with a heritage museum housed in the old school building, are indicative of increasing diversity and economic revitalization in the area
