I was called by a client in Santa Clarita, California. They were selling their home and moving to Colorado. After the Realtor checked each room of their beautiful home, she requested a huge laundry list of repairs that needed to be addressed immediately. One job was to repair the kitchen nook dining room wallpaper. Two kitchen windows had bad rubber seals and had completely dried up. Sprinkler water had passed the rubber seal creating the damages on the kitchen walls.

This post shows the four steps showing the damages to this kitchen nook wall.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows that all these walls have damages. Windows were not closed and water seeped inside the wall.
