Summer can bring strong storms to your area that can cause damage to your home. In today’s post, A1 Siding and Roofing, a credentialed roofing and siding contractor, shares expert tips on boosting your home’s protection against bad weather.
Schedule a Thorough Inspection
Arrange an appointment with a qualified professional as early as possible so you can identify and address any weaknesses in your roof and siding. Our inspection provides a 360-degree view of your exterior’s health. If there is damage, A1 Siding and Roofing will determine the best solution, whether it’s a simple roof repair or a major siding installation.
Unclog Gutters and Downspouts
Your gutters need to be clear and clog-free before the torrential downpours of summer arrive. Otherwise, they won’t be able to drain water away from your home properly, which can lead to damage. Make sure your gutters and downspouts are free of debris before a storm arrives.
Trim Overhanging Trees
No roof is safe from overhanging trees during violent wind events. Sustained gales can cause large branches to snap off of trees or even uproot trees completely. This can cause catastrophic damage to your home. Prepare for summer by trimming trees that grow near your home and removing any trees that are a hazard.
Address Leaks Promptly
If your roof or vinyl siding has a leak, you need to address the issue as soon as possible. Avoiding the problem will only cause it to worsen, leading to bigger headaches and more costly repairs down the line.
