How to Protect Your Home’s Exterior in Summer

From Our Sponsors:




May is finally here with blue skies, warm breezes and plenty of sun.

Pass the SPF 30!

Just as it's critical to your body's health to protect your skin by wearing sunscreen and limiting exposure, it's also important to give thought to protecting your home's exterior health. Its outside layer – siding, roof and paint – take a beating from the heat and UV rays of summer sun.

For you and your house, prevention and vigilance about early signs of sun damage are key. Take the time to periodically check out your home's exterior from top to bottom and repair damage immediately. Your bank account will thank you.

“If you neglect your house it will cost you more in the long run,” explains Ben Feilmeier, sales manager for 7 Summits Roofing in Colorado Springs. “Something that could be prevented or easily repaired can become very costly if you discover it further down the line.”

Here are a few signs of exterior damage that you should get checked out by an expert sooner rather than later:

1. Water damage or leaks

Water is a roof's No. 1 enemy. Catching leaks or hints of damage early can be the difference between a minor repair and a huge replacement. Check both your interior ceiling and exterior of your roof for seeping water.

2. Broken or missing shingles

Shingles can also allow water into your roof if they're broken, missing or worn. It's especially important to check on shingles after storms, since high wind and hail can wreak havoc on your roof.

3. Sun damage on roof and siding

Over time, UV rays and heat from the sun can degrade the entirety of your home's exterior. Look out for warped, chipped or faded siding and roofing materials. These signs may be more subtle, so be sure to get regular inspections.

If you find any signs of damage or haven't had your home inspected recently, then it's time to call in the experts. Although some home maintenance projects can be done DIY, professionals have the experience and knowledge to give your home the care it deserves.

“At 7 Summits Roofing, we are roofing experts,” says Feilmeier. “We have people on staff with years of experience that can help you through and make suggestions about the best ways to restore different parts of your home exterior.”
