While everything blooms in spring, this season can bring severe storms. You can’t control the weather but you can prepare your home to prevent damage. There are measures you can take to ensure your property stays protected from harsh outdoor elements.
Here are ways to get your home ready for the spring storm season from a trusted provider of home repair services.
Get a Professional Roof Inspection
Your home’s main protection against the weather is the roof. However, keep in mind that roofing jobs are best left to professionals. What you can do is check your attics for signs of water damage. Look for water stains to the ceilings and walls. Mold growth can also indicate that your roof is leaking. Take note of the issues you found in your attic and discuss them with your roofer. If your roof is severely damaged or reaching the end of its lifespan, you may want to consider getting a new one. A new roof can ensure that you and your family stay safe and comfortable all-year-round.
Check Your Exterior
Walk around your home and check it for possible signs of damage. See if your siding is in good condition and make sure to address repairs as soon as possible. Delaying repairs will only make the problem worse and costlier. For quality vinyl and fiber cement siding repair services, you can count on NC Rebuild, Inc.
Have Your Gutters and Downspouts Cleaned
Fallen leaves, seeds, branches, and other debris can clog your gutters. When your gutters are clogged, water can back up to your roof and overflow to your siding. Avoid water damage by regularly having your gutter system inspected and cleaned. You can also trim trees surrounding your home to minimize the debris that falls into your gutters.
