As a homeowner, it is your responsibility to have your house regularly checked to ensure that no issue – a clogged gutter, a cracked foundation, or a leaky roof – is being left unnoticed. Otherwise, even the smallest neglected issue can cost you thousands of dollars in repair or even total replacement.
One of the most expensive issues to fix in a house are water damage caused by leaks in the roof. Damaged roof and gutters can cause rainwater to seep through the concrete easily and then to spaces such as an attic. When you fail to identify and repair this kind of damage, it can lead to infestations of mold and mildew, which, aside from being unsightly, are also unhealthy and can spread into living areas of your house.
Luckily, such expensive roof repair can easily be avoided by spending just a few hours on the ladder to spot leaks, apply sealant, and clean out the gutters. To learn more ways on how you can avoid costly home repairs, check this infographic from All County Exteriors.
