Water is one of the greatest threats to your home. When not properly managed, it can undermine your household’s structural integrity. A good siding, gutter and roofing system can minimize the risk of water damage.
Hinkle Roofing, your trusted replacement windows provider, discusses three home improvement projects that can fortify your home’s defense against water damage.
Your roof plays the largest role in keeping your home warm and dry, so a roof in poor condition may allow leaks and lead to poor ventilation. Take time to inspect your roof. When you notice a curling shingle or blistering paint, consider replacing them.
Modern manufacturing methods enable manufacturers to create high-performance roofing materials that can improve your home’s functionality and energy efficiency. As a GAF Master Elite™ Roofer, we offer premium products from the largest roof manufacturing company in North America. GAF’s roofing systems are equipped with the Dura Grip™ Adhesive that can prevent shingle blow-offs.
The primary function of your gutter is to channel water away from the foundation of your home. Rain gutters, when properly installed, should not keep standing water nor should they leak. They should also be safely attached to the fascias. Downspouts should also have at least a three-foot diversion away from the foundation.
Installing siding to your home can improve insulation. It can also protect your home from the elements that impair functionality. When the temperature drops, a well-installed siding can keep heat in your living space. Additionally, it can make your exterior more attractive.
