Strategies for Northwest Home Maintenance

The Evergreen State stays green for one reason… water and lots of it! As a homeowner, it is that same water which is the largest enemy of your home. Water can speed deterioration, lead to rot damage, create a favorable environment for insects and molds and cause erosion and settling. Proper management of water is the single most important thing you can do to protect and preserve your home and it is the common theme behind many maintenance tasks.
