Water damage is never a fun thing to deal with. Fortunately, there are several ways to be proactive to help minimize the risk of water damage. Part 1 of this blog series noted that it’s a good idea to cover your window wells, be mindful about your landscaping, and get a roof inspection. Here are 3 more tips to help prevent water damage: Siding Contractors Savage MN
New windows are a great way to naturally prevent water damage. Do you notice that your windows are getting drafty, and water starts pooling beneath your windows? You probably have a leak somewhere in your window. Sometimes this issue can be resolved by peeling out the caulking and sealing it with new caulking. However, depending on how old your windows are and a number of other factors, it may be wise to look into getting new windows installed.
Window replacements done properly can save you hundreds of dollars on energy bills. New windows also will keep heavy rains out, preventing water damage. If you do notice that your windows have encountered window damage from severe weather, contact us for any of our window services.
Be Proactive Looking For Leaks
Homeowners can find potential leaks in several areas of their homes. Water damage can occur anywhere from your roof to the lowest part of your basement, so when you’re being proactive and searching for leaks, search high and low. Oftentimes, homeowners notice discoloration on their ceilings which indicates water damage. Consider the area above, if you have a bathroom above your leak it may be coming from a pipe. However, if you’re noticing a leak and know that your roof is above, you should call your local roofing contractor to repair your roof and assess your water damage.
Repair Damaged Shingles
After a big Midwestern storm, we know that our home’s exteriors can become subject to high-impact damage. One of the most impacted things is our roofs. Homeowners are recommended to get a roof inspection to determine if the roof has any damages that are potentially impacting other areas of your home, thus leaving your interior less protected. Shingles often get the brunt of the damage because they are the first thing that rain and hail will impact on your roof.
Roofers will look for damage on your shingles that include: dents and holes from hail damage, cracked or torn shingles, shingles that are completely missing and blown off, and warped shingles or other areas of your roof. If you have storm damages that include any of these things, your roof and home are very susceptible to water damage. Contact a roofing company as soon as you’re able to get a free roof inspection and ensure your roof is sturdy and able to keep your home safe.
