Seepage creeps up on you slowly. It’s not an overnight affair; it’s one that will rear its ugly head on you gradually, only to manifest itself by shattering through the paint one fine morning when you’re late for work. The first sign of it is usually a light heap of paint rubble directly under the seepage area. As you look closer though, you’ll notice that the wall above the rubble that was once crisp and unblemished is now splitting and revealing the plaster underneath. The paint on your wall now tapers out, resembling a dead flower whose petals are ready to fall out. Not a pretty sight for anybody to wake up to, really.
