Planning to do a home inspection soon? There’s a few common home problems you’ll encounter that you need to address immediately. Universal Roofing and Exteriors discusses the most common house problems you’ll expect during a home inspection.
Worn Down Roofing
The most common problem you’ll encounter during an inspection is worn down roofing. As your home ages, so does the material of the roofing. Asphalt, for example, has an average life span of around 15 to 20 years, but this doesn’t take into account elemental damage yet.
We suggest you have us address your roofing concern before anything else. When we do an in-depth inspection of your home, we’ll be able to determine if it can still be repaired or a full replacement is the better option.
Fading Exterior Paint
Just like your roof, your exterior walls are susceptible to elemental damage – from intense heat to moisture damage from the rain. If your exterior wall paint is fading, it may be better to install siding instead of repaint it.
Siding has a longer operating life span than even the most resilient wall paint, and boast better elemental resilience and physical durability. As your local siding contractor, we offer fiber cement and vinyl siding – both offering excellent protection from the weather, mold, insects, and fire.
After the spring, you’re going to expect some blockage on your gutters. It’s easy to discount this as a small problem, but your gutters actually play a big role in protecting your home. After all, they divert water away from your foundation and consequently prevent damage to your interior.
Blockages in the gutters are dangerous since they also put unnecessary weight on your roof, and even physically damage it once it starts dragging the roof line down. If you’re intimidated at the prospect of cleaning out your gutters, don’t worry; we’re experts at providing professional gutter cleaning and maintenance. We’ll restore your gutters to rights and make sure they’re better than ever.
