Following any severe storm - especially those including high winds - you should inspect your roof and siding for potential damage. If there is damage to your roofing or siding, you want to make sure it is taken care of before winter. Here are some things to look for:
- Missing or curled shingles
- Loose or missing sections of siding
- Excessive roofing granules at the base of your downspouts
Putting off roofing or siding repairs until spring is never a good idea. Loose or missing siding means there are entry points for insects and rodents seeking a warm place to winter over. It also provides a point of entry for moisture, as well as a breach in your exterior insulation, which could result in drafty rooms as well as higher heating bills. Untended roofing damage could mean a wet, leaky ceiling this winter, and once you get to that point, there could also be mold build-up inside your home as well as structural damage.If you're not sure whether storm damage has compromised your home's exterior, call the roofing and siding professionals at Quarve Contracting today.
