Water damage is the last thing you want in your home. The damage it can do is extensive despite how harmless it initially seems, and there’ are several ways that your home can accrue it – whether it’s due to a storm or a leaking pipe. V. Nanfito Roofing and Siding discusses the most affected areas in your home.
Exterior Walls and Spaces
Your home’s exterior walls and spaces are very vulnerable to water damage, especially if your home lacks a good gutter system. Water runs down from the roof and all throughout the exterior wall, causing minimal moisture damage at first. When left unattended though, it can quickly wear down the structural integrity of your walls and strip off your wall cover. We advise that you consult our experts for anything that concerns your gutters.
Water Damage on the Foundation
Eventually, the water will find its way down to your home’s foundation until it pools and forms a puddle. Standing water is very dangerous since it does continual water damage to the foundation, weakening its structural integrity. In some cases, extensive foundation damage caused by water actually causes it to shift.
If you want to avoid water damage to your wall and siding, we suggest getting a more resilient wall cover. The vinyl siding option we have features higher elemental resilience than wood shake siding and exterior paint, and is virtually immune to warping and tearing. This makes it a better, long-term solution to protecting your home from water damage.
Attics and Leaking Pipes
In some homes, the pipes are located in the attic space. When a leak erupts here, the attic and inner roof structure can weaken over time if not addressed immediately. Even small leaks are dangerous since they can affect the “natural” ventilation system of your attic, which keeps your roof healthy.
At V. Nanfito Roofing and Siding, you can count on our experience and skill to address your home leaks before they become a bigger problem in the future. Our siding contractor is always at hand to assist you.
