Water damage can cause many problems from homeowners, from rotting wood interiors to fluctuating temperatures. Twin Cities Siding Professionals, the leading siding contractor, cites the ways to prevent this from happening to your home.
Keep Gutters Clean
The gutters play an important role in keeping water off your home and the siding. It directs water towards the downspouts, which moves water away from your house. If debris, dirt, leaves and other things block the gutter, water will accumulate and cause it to overflow or seep into the siding. Once that happens, it can rot the materials or allow pests to enter your house. Always check the system, and remove any item that may block the flow of water.
Remove Ice and Snow Immediately
In cities with cold climates, such as Minneapolis, you’ll have to deal with ice and snow in winter. You’ll have to remove snow from right next to your house so that it doesn’t melt and seep into the siding and walls.
One of the ways to properly insulate your home is to install top quality James Hardie® siding. This is a high-quality brand of siding that doesn’t easily delaminate, rot or warp, allowing it to last longer than other types of material. It is also thicker than its vinyl counterpart, which makes it more durable to hail strikes and winds up to 150 mph strong. The material’s strength keeps water and moisture out, and can withstand the worst possible weather.
