Weather Proofing Your Home

Weatherproofing your home is one of the best ways to save money as a homeowner. Before the heat starts escaping and the moisture starts intruding, you’ve got to seal the cracks, add insulation, improve poor drainage, replace the and so much more. Sound like a lot of work? It doesn’t have to; weatherproofing gets a lot easier when you call in the pros!

How You Can Weather Proof Your Home

Step 1: Start at the bottom. Make sure any debris (like leaves and bushes) is removed or cut back. The less room there is for air to circulate around the foundation, the most moisture will creep in and hang on.

Step 2: Check for cracks and holes and fill them in. Look carefully around any exterior piping and vents. Check extra carefully around window and door frames, as that’s where unwanted air flow happens.

Step 3: Replace any rotting or broken siding. If it’s been a few years since the last coat, repaint with exterior, weather proofing paint.

Step 4: Clean out the gutters and drains. One of the worst culprits when it comes to home damage is sitting water and poor drainage from the roof and walls. Make sure any moisture runs off and away from your house as fast as quickly as possible.

Step 5: Fix any roof issues, from broken or missing shingles to sagging supports (sagging means pooling water, and pooling water is bad). Roof waterproofing, both outside and in, is one of the most effective ways to weatherproof your home.

Step 6: Check and improve the insulation inside your roof/attic. Depending on the amount of insulation and size of your attic, this is where professionals come in handy. There are many different types of insulation and not all are equal. A professional will be able to assess your attic type, know the sort of insulation that works best, and then install it with little to no inconvenience to you, the homeowner.
