There are many ways water can inflict serious damage to your home. It takes the path of least resistance, which means it can enter through gaps on the roof and penetrate siding and windows. It can also spill out of your gutters, especially when they are clogged.
Kidd-Luukko Corporation, home of your local roofers, advises that you keep the important parts of your home in the best condition possible to prevent water damage. Read on to learn more.
As rain trickles on your roof, the water flows down the slope and into your gutter system. It will then channel the rainwater toward the downspouts and away from your premises. It is important to ensure the system’s proper function, which is why it must be cleaned and maintained regularly. Once you see signs of disrepair, consider replacing them so that they won’t cause further water damage to your home’s exterior.
Water may still penetrate the inner layers of your roof, no matter how big or small the gap is. Leaks can compromise the whole structure, resulting in its early failure. Contact our roof replacement pros as soon as possible so we can inspect your roof. Our thorough review of the problem areas and determine the best course of action to take moving forward.
Leaving obvious water damage unaddressed can also affect your home’s exterior siding. It may still appear as if it doesn’t have damage, but it is possible that it is already damp with moisture. You may be looking at a costly repair if you delay taking this issue seriously, so be sure to consider this area of your home during home maintenance.
