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 clean 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.

Wilkeson was officially incorporated on July 24, 1909 and boasts an elementary school building dating from 1909. The town is named for Samuel Wilkeson, father of journalist and pioneer settler Frank Wilkeson.

The following passage is from an online biography of Frank Wilkeson:

"[In] his 1869 report of the Cascades mountain range, Frank [Wilkeson]'s father, Samuel, wrote: 'these forests of trees — so enchain the senses of the grand and so enchant the sense of the beautiful that I linger on the theme and am loathe [sic] to depart — surpassing the woods of all the rest of the globe...' Like many writers of that time, Samuel indulged in hyperbole, but his love of the Cascades seems very genuine. Sometime in the period of 1876-78, four large coal veins were discovered and mined near a region known as Carbonado in the Cascade foothills. A small village formed and was named for Samuel after NP extended a rail line there from Tacoma in 1877. He was appointed secretary of the NP board in March 1869. The area became well known for its coal coking ovens as well as the natural sandstone formations that were the source of material for facing the new capitol in Olympia. At one time the town of Wilkeson had a population of about 3,000, but today it hovers around 400. Many of the same principals of the Wilkeson operation built the coking ovens at Cokedale, about 80 miles north in Skagit County, which led to the creation of the town of Sedro, now Sedro-Woolley. As far as we can determine, neither Frank nor any member of his family actually ever lived in the namesake town, but his brother, Samuel G. Wilkeson, invested substantially in coal companies that operated there...

"Frank's father died in 1889 but by then another Wilkeson was investing financially in the Puget Sound: Samuel Gansevoort Wilkeson, Frank's older brother. Samuel G. first came to Tacoma in 1873, the year that town was chosen as the terminus for the Northern Pacific. He was a contemporary of Tacoma boomer Leonard Howarth and became wealthy in his activities with the same companies as Howarth — the St. Paul & Tacoma Lumber Co. and the Wilkeson Coal & Coke Co. That company mined coking coal in the town of Wilkeson, the town near Enumclaw that was named to honor Frank's and Sam's father."
