When heavy rain moves into the area, you’ll have many concerns about the potential impact on your home. For example, excessive rain has the potential to damage your siding.
While every type of siding is designed to hold up against the elements, you never know when something could go wrong. For example, if you have old vinyl siding that’s not tight to the frame of your home, it’s likely that water will get behind it.
Here are a few things to consider when inspecting your siding for water damage:
· Water on the inside: Depending on how much water seeped behind your siding, it’s possible it’ll enter the interior of your home. If you’re seeing wet spots on your drywall, don’t wait a single minute to investigate.
· Mold or algae growth: If you notice either of these things, it’s possible there’s something going on behind your siding. Simply removing the growth isn’t good enough, as it’ll come back in the near future. You need to take care of the root of the problem.
· Buckling or bowing: Do you notice that your siding is no longer sitting flush with the frame of your home? This is often the result of water soaking the insulation, which causes the siding to buckle or stick out.
If you suspect water damage, take the necessary steps in pinpointing the issue and solving it once and for all.
