Old, outdated home exteriors often have moisture problems, causing mold to grow and multiply. A common issue among many homeowners, it can thrive in warm, moist environments and break down a variety of materials, including wood and drywall. Failure to address this may put you and your family members at risk of respiratory illnesses, not to mention compromise your home’s structural integrity. Tackling home exterior upgrades, however, can help prevent moisture from causing mold to spread.
Outdated wood siding can be replaced with more high-quality and well-insulated siding materials like vinyl and fiber cement. These are impervious to mold due to their waterproofing qualities. Insulated siding, in particular, helps drain moisture from behind panels, preventing the spread of mold and mildew that worsen the home’s curb appeal.
Through a roof replacement, residential properties are provided with a new protective barrier against the elements. Leak barriers, in particular, create a seal so water cannot enter the most vulnerable parts of the system. Proper installation is imperative, as well as regular maintenance, to ensure the roofs’ peak performance.
You need to stop moisture from entering your home to stop the growth of mold. While it is a good idea to fix broken seals on windows and perform other repairs, a full window replacement can be all it takes to eliminate this threat to the home’s interior. Energy-efficient window units not only prevent mold growth, but also contribute to better use of energy.
