Check Your Roof
Your roof keeps the rain off of your head and the wind out of your hair while you relax inside of your home. It is crucial to keep your roof in good repair. Water damage that enters your home from a leaking roof can cause extreme harm to the interior of your home. You can check your roof for leaks from the inside out. Check around the eaves and in the attic. Also, check the chimney for any signs of cracking or peeling brick.
Check the Siding or Sides of Your Home
Whether you have wood siding, plastic siding or live in a nice log cabin, you should inspect the outside walls of your home for water leaks and weather damage. Exterior home repair is important to perform on the sides of your home to keep pests out, water out and cool air and heat in. Check the fascia boards and soffits as well as the gutters and downspouts that line the walls. For any signs of age or water damage, you should put these high on your to-do list.
Check Your Windows and Doors
Windows and doors are a top priority for exterior home repair. These holes are an easy way for unwanted pests and water to enter your home. You will want to ensure there is a good seal on each window and door. You will want to make sure the windows are hung properly, and the door has room to expand in the heat. You should also check for buckling and replace ripped screens in both windows and doors.
