Importance of Maintenance

Maintaining the structures and systems of your home is important in attaining the expected lifespan. For example, mold and mildew tend to grow on roofs and siding, but taking the time to schedule exterior home cleaning services can prevent the damage that mold and mildew will eventually cause, lessening your siding or shingles’ lifespan.

Gutter guards help keep your gutters free of clogs so water can freely flow off your roof and away from your foundation. These steps will help extend the life of both your roof and siding.
