A lot of factors can affect the structural integrity of your home. One of the most common household issues is water damage. This is usually caused by flood, accidental discharge from pipes, plumbing fixture problems and more.
Masters Roofing recommends some home improvement services that can protect your home from water damage:
1. New Gutters
The main task of a gutter is to divert water away from your home. This will only be possible if gutters remain to be functional. How do you check if your gutters are not doing their job? If your gutter have cracks, then it may not do its purpose of drainage properly. You may also want to check your exterior siding or any section where there’s compromised paint. This can be an indication that your gutters are leaking. In addition, an obvious sign that you need to have new gutters is when they already look rotten.
2. Gutter Protection System
To make your gutters even more operational, installing a gutter protection system can help. These protect your gutters from clogging with leaves, debris and other elements. A gutter protection system eliminates the need for you to clean your gutters regularly. It also prevents the build-up of stagnant water in your gutters. With their protection, gutters can be free from rot and rust. Moreover, it serves as a shield from ice dams which can damage your walls, landscaping and foundation.
3. New Windows
In old structures, window leaks are a typical problem. Water leaks can be a result of sealed unit failure, wear and tear, or deterioration. However, if the water leaking has affected the area around the window or even the entire unit, it’s best to replace them with new windows. This may be a bit costly but in the long run, this is beneficial.
When you choose to replace your windows with a new one, the problem will most likely be detectable. Not only will you be able to fix the root cause of the problem, but you can also give your property a new look.
