One of the most important needs for all humans is to feel safe and secure. The job of a house is to protect you, and the job of it’s roofing and siding is for its own protection. Here are a few things that can cause damage to your home.

Ceiling Leaks
If the roof of your home has damaged or missing materials, water can make its entrance in the form of ceiling leaks. These leaks will drip onto the ceiling and create brown stains that will eventually lead to water damage and mold. To prevent ceiling leaks from occurring, inspect your roof a few times per year, especially after major storms. If the shingles, flashing, or gutters are damaged or missing, have them repaired or replaced immediately.

Pests
There are many household pests that will enter your home and make it their own. Unfortunately, many will get too comfy and start to ruin the structure of your home. Mice, bats, and wasps can do small damage to your home in order for them to get inside your attic or build their nests. Of all the pests, termites cause the most damage. These home eaters can compromise the structure of your home and should be managed by a professional pest control expert.

Extreme Weather
Harsh weather conditions and powerful storms can cause damage to your home’s roof, siding, and the entire structure itself. Lightning, hail, and high-speed winds are common in many areas of the country and are responsible for billions of dollars worth of damage per year. It’s important to have your roof, siding, and gutters professionally installed so your house has a better chance of staying protected during these conditions.
