Exterior Repairs to Make Before Winter

Autumn is here, which means it is the perfect time to squeeze in any last-minute maintenance or repair to the exterior features of your home before winter rears its head. Here in the northern Illinois and southern Wisconsin areas, winter conditions can be especially brutal on building exterior. However, the damage can be even worse when your house has outdated or old materials before winter starts.

To keep your home as cozy as possible, and to make sure you aren’t dealing with any exterior emergencies when the weather rages outside, here are a few repairs to make in the next few months.

Missing or Discolored Shingles

Your roof offers defense against the elements and our winters can put your shingles to the test. If you notice missing or discolored shingles on your roof, take care of the repair quickly. Missing or discolored shingles won’t do their job and you could be putting your home at risk for water damage in the long run.

Siding in Disrepair

When is the last time you took a stroll around your home to inspect the siding? You don’t have to be an expert to notice if you have any mold problems, missing siding, or scratches or other damage to the siding panels. Your siding plays a major role in keeping your home warm in the wintertime and it can’t do its job if the panels are damaged. Further, if you haven’t had your siding repaired in the past 15 years, you are overdue and could be living with subpar materials.

Full Gutters

Your gutters are responsible for moving water out and away from the foundation of your home. If your gutters are broken, damaged, or filled with debris, they can’t do their job. Damaged gutter systems can lead to serious water damage and problems with ice in the months ahead. Get your gutter system repaired before winter arrives.
