Capillary action refers to the ability of water to travel up against the pull of gravity through a porous material. Wood is such material. One common example of this action is water “wicking” up through a paper towel, following the direction of the paper fibers. Although not as serious as bulk water movement, capillary forces are powerful…often moving upwards without the occupant’s knowledge. Over time this action can have a devastating affect on your home. #capillary #water #roofer #siding #roofleak

What will you do for $5?

We're surfing around the FB castle walls and find some kool stuff. Meet Brian Shriver - he's in our group. We rang him up for a Q and A.

Got something you think would make a good story? We're just a PM away!

Charles found an interesting one.

I don't see this often. (prolly because I don't do a ton of older homes). Almost everything you see here is holding water...if you can't see why (obvious in the picture), read more.

My home is on a hill. But my neighbors have gutters. We don't! Do you think we need gutters?
