Ways to Prolong Life of Your Home Each Spring
- Check for winter water damage. If a little water got in then froze it may have cause warped roofing or attic materials which can allow in more water and ice next season. Checking for winter water damage is a vital way to prolong the life of your roof and to prevent further damage and costs.
- Sweep roof and clean out gutters. This chore ensures that the debris is not rotting against roofing material, a rotting roof can spread damage throughout the attic quickly and mold or water damage can be hard to get rid of.
- Clean any debris away from the footing of home, trim any extra brush. These materials will naturally rot and this rot can spread the home depending on the building materials. The debris also encourages bugs to hang out near the home so clearing out any organic matter is vital.
