How does storm damage affect my home over time?
Worn down weather stripping
Brand new replacement windows can have strong, leakproof seals and weather stripping that protect your home from moisture, wind, and drafts. As the years pass, however, storms and daily wear (including ultraviolet rays) can break down seals, make your glass more brittle, and damaged weather stripping. Hire a professional to inspect your windows, especially if you notice leaks or temperature problems during a storm. It might be time for repairs or window replacement.
Lost curb appeal and home value
If you don’t keep up with home maintenance before and after storms, you could risk siding stains, dented gutters, lost shingles, broken windows, and many other things that lower the aesthetic value and curb appeal of your home. Aside from keeping your home safe, invest in maintenance and timely repairs to maintain the appearance of your home. Make storm damage prevention and repair easy.
