When you think of holiday season decorations, twinkling outdoor lights come to mind. Before climbing up on the roof there are some important things to keep in mind when decorating your roof line
When autumn begins and weather chills, it is time to think about your roof weathering the winter.
Prepare your home's roof with some do-it-yourself preparations.
Mold grows indoors when spores in the air land on wet surfaces caused by roof leaks, plumbing problems, ventilation issues, and other moisture sources. Molds produce allergens and in some cases toxic substances that can cause reactions in people with allergies and asthma.
Gutters play an important role in the protection of your home's structure. Regular maintenance is needed to keep them working properly. How do you know when it is time to repair or replace. These are some signs to watch for.
Clogged gutters and downspouts can result in costly damage. Water overflow can damage your roof by seeping in where water shouldn't. It will also cause ice to build up in the winter causing damage. Water overflowing down the outside of your house can damage siding and paint. Water that is not properly drained away from the home can cause basement flooding problems and even damage foundations. Clogged gutters are heavy. This will cause them to sag and come loose or fall off. Debris sitting in gutters can attract unwanted pests, including ants and mosquitoes, and mildew.
