Home Upgrades That Protect From Water Damage

Water damage is arguably the biggest threat to your home, and it starts from the simplest things. A leak on the roof can spread damage to your attic and interior, while a clogged gutter can cause water to overflow and pool around your foundation.

Home Upgrades That Protect From Water Damage

Since it’s usually hard to detect water damage until it has already wreaked havoc in your home, by the time it’s evident, you’ll be facing costly repair expenses. Fortunately, you can do several things to improve your home’s protection. Empire Contractors, the leading contractor, explains more:

Gutter Installation

Gutters can help direct water away from your home and safely into the downspouts. This way, you won’t have to worry about water flowing along your siding and entering your home. Your gutter system can only do its job effectively, however, if it is in excellent condition. Investing in a maintenance routine helps keep your gutters clog-free and healthy all year round.

Don’t have the time to clean your gutters regularly? Empire Contractors can install our Gutter Topper® gutter guards on your new system. This keeps leaves and other debris off of your gutters, allowing the free flow of water without any maintenance needed.

Roofing Repairs

The roof is your home’s first line of defense from the elements, which is why it’s important to keep it in excellent condition. One way to do this is with timely roof repairs. Small cracks or holes on your roof allow water to enter your system and seep into your interior. Address problems before they escalate by turning to Empire Contractors for the proper roofing solutions.

Siding Replacement

Damaged siding is not only unsightly, it also gives rainwater access into your home. Water overflowing from your gutter can run down your exterior and enter your home. To see if you need replacement, inspect your home from the ground. Check for any dark areas or peeling paint along the surface that can indicate moisture. For a more thorough inspection, though, be sure to call Empire Contractors. Keep your home safe and damage-free by turning to Empire Contractors.
