A home with old, outdated exteriors presents an opportunity for moisture to penetrate, causing mold to multiply. A problem for many homeowners, this organism grows within a day or two in warm, moist environments and break down materials such as wood or drywall. Failing to address this issue can compromise the structural integrity of the home.
Fortunately, pursuing upgrades on exterior components can help keep moisture from resulting in the spread of mold. The roofing pros of Hinkle Roofing discuss them here.
Condensation happens on windows when warm air meets the cold surface. Excessive humidity plays a role for its formation, and while it is a natural occurrence, it can be a huge problem if it doesn’t go away upon wiping your hand on the glass. Walls and wooden sills may, later on, show signs of condensation, increasing the chances of mold growth.
Upgrading to energy-efficient windows will help address the mold problem. Having them installed the right way by home improvement pros will stop drafts and moisture from entering your home and wreaking havoc on your indoor humidity and comfort levels.
At some point in its service life, a roofing system may begin to show its age. Leaks crop up regularly and shingles lose their protective capabilities. Exposure to moisture over long periods can cause further problems, including mold growth.
By installing a new roofing system, the home now has a barrier that protects the interior from the elements. High-quality asphalt shingles help boost its performance, withstanding everything Mother Nature throws it. More importantly, proper installation prevents the home from getting exposed to moisture.
