5 Parts of Your Home To Inspect This Spring
Statistics state that 70% of American homeowners view their home as their largest asset, so naturally following a good maintenance schedule should be a HUGE priority, right? As a Roofer in Saint Louis, we know first hand that is not always the case with their roof. Staying on top of repairs and making wise improvements are both solid ways to improve the value of your home over time. Here is a list of 5 areas to watch out for;
A roof accounts for about 50% of the exterior of a house, and It has a significant impact on its curb appeal. Problems such as a roof leak can create costly repairs or even a full replacement including the decking beneath. Scheduling regular roof inspections will help to find small problems before they get bigger and increase the longevity of your roof.
Siding and Gutters
"Both the siding and gutters of a home are intended to guard and protect your home from the harsh elements that it faces", says a Roofing in Saint Louis and siding expert. When they are not correctly maintained, some unfortunate surprises like mold growth, rot, and costly replacement parts can result.
Masonry & Foundation
Always inspect your foundation, patios, and walkways, particularly after periods of heavy rain and hail. When hail builds up against the walls of your home, moisture can seep into the pores of the foundation.
As a Saint Louis Roofing and exteriors professional, the two most well-known causes of energy loss in a home that we see are created by insufficient attic insulation and outdated energy-inefficient windows. Examining these two parts will help you save cash and help make your home greener!
Deck & Porches
Look at all of your decks, patios, porches, stairs, and railings for weak components and visible damage. Wood decks and fences should be treated about every 4-6 years or earlier depending on the amount of exposure they receive from the elements like sun, rain, snow, hail, and wind.
