Where To Spot Signs Of Water Damage In Your Home

Water damage is the last thing you want to affect your home, and it's also one of the most difficult to spot. This usually manifests in the last place you expect, so it's important that you keep an eye out. Read on as Colorado Roof Toppers discusses where to spot signs of water damage in your home.

Start Outside

Our residential roofing contractor suggests checking outside first for water damage since this is where it usually begins. Since most water accumulates on the roof, it's a good idea to inspect the exterior walls or siding, as well as the foundation of your home.

If you notice that the exterior walls and foundation are showing signs of water damage, then the problem isn't actually the roof - it's the gutter system. A poorly functioning gutter system is incapable of drawing water away from your exteriors, which leads to pooling and saturation.

Installing Better Gutters

We suggest you have us complete a new gutter installation if you notice a lot of water damage on your exterior spaces - especially if there's existing damage on the foundation. Standing water pooling near the foundation is dangerous since the moisture damage will eventually spread throughout the entire structure.

Installing newer gutters will protect your home from water damage and maintain the structural integrity of your roofing. Blockages weigh the gutter down, and this has the effect of pulling the roof line down along with it.

We suggest you have us install our seamless gutters on your home to keep water damage from occurring. Not only are they engineered to seamlessly blend with your roof line, but they also accumulate less dirt and debris. That's less maintenance for you to do and less gutter blockages.
