One of the most frequent causes of damage to any residence is water. Whether it comes from heavy rain or melting snow, water can weaken your outermost layers of protection and the structure itself. Without the proper protective measures, you could compromise your walls and roofing. You can prevent damage with 2 types of home improvement projects designed to help you handle the water.
Even if your roof is sloped and angled, there is still a chance that moisture from rain and snow could pool and seep into the roof itself. More than the stains, moisture damage wears out the underlying structure.
To prevent such a scenario, install a gutter system. Gutter installation sets you up with a system that collects the water that runs off from the slope of your roof, and channels all of this out through a downspout.
At Kidd-Luukko Corporation, we’re familiar with the whole process of installing new gutters. By sizing it to fit, the system can be both efficient and visually in sync with your home’s overall architecture. We also provide repair and replacements for damaged gutters.
Your roofing is another important component of protection against water. Rainfall, snow, and other elements bombard your roof every day. All of this can weaken the shingles on top, and create chips, holes and leaks. If your roof has damaged or missing shingles, this risk increases dramatically.
By finding the right shingle material to place over your home, you can create a water-resistant shield that last years. For example, we offer PVC tiles to combat water and chemical damage from affecting your home. We also provide shingles from trusted manufacturers like GAF and Firestone®, known for their durable and energy-efficient roofing options.
