Rot and Water Damage Prevention
There are a thousand ways to prevent water and rot damage. Here are a few ways of doing this.
It starts with keeping up with caulking around doors, window corners and other exposed areas. Keeping your wood areas of you home sealed and painted any exposed area can cause rot or mold. Keeping up with this is not expensive some times no more than $3.00 can stop a major problem.
Proper flashing above your doors and windows is very important so that water can sit on top of you door trim allowing water to get behind you doors or siding.
Roof maintenance is also very important a missing single or exposed nail can cost you thousands of dollars in repair on the inside or outside of you home. A simple five minute inspection can show any potential problem areas. Replacing shingles is a simple process that can save you money. If you have exposed nails you can seal them with 100% silicone or old henery tare that you can get in a caulk tube. Check the boots around you vents and if you have a chimney chase make sure that your brick is mortised properly and that the seal between the case and roof are in good order. Proper flashing is the key to a water tight seal.
These are just a few ideas for you to check to prevent costly repairs.
