We know that no one likes the rain, but one benefit is that if you take the time to inspect the exterior of your home the rain we dislike can save you $$! How? Simple, With the extreme heat and heavy rains in the Atlanta area, often times parts of your roofing system can begin to fail over the years, from the siding to the flashing and beyond. Unfortunately, many of the people that are homeowners have no idea how to spot these issues early on and when untreated small issues lead to big costly problems by way of major roof repair or even roof replacement! Here are some simple things to look for that could save you $ and potential water damage.
- Do you see any water under you gutter system on the brick or siding - wet spots or stains? This could be a sign of the flashing to your roofing system seperating in one area or more of the house - call a roofer fast if you notice this.
- Do you see any water coming thru exterior light fixtures? Are there cracks that you notice on any elevated patios or veranda's that are present at the home? If so you may have an issue with the seal
- What about water teaming over the side of the gutter on the home? You probably have a clog! We need to clean those gutters
- What about wet spots in the top level of the home or discolored paint on the interior of exteriors walls? Sure sign there is water getting in somewhere!
