Ever wonder why some homes look better than yours, even though they’re years older? Moisture protection. Keeping moisture at bay can help keep your home looking younger for years. Read on as Gutter Helmet® of Western North Carolina, the makers of the best gutter guards in the state, share some tips on how to spot signs of moisture damage and fix them.

Can Preventing Moisture Damage Make That Big of a Difference in Terms of Curb Appeal?

Is curb appeal or how attractive your exterior that important? Yes, it matters a lot. According to realtors, a house with a worn exterior can lose as much as 10% of its appraised value, which for the average home, amounts to $15,000 to $20,000.

Start With Your Roof

Your roof is your home’s first line of defence against the elements, which is why if water managed to infiltrate your interior, the roof is where the warning signs of moisture damage will first appear.

Check Your Gutters 

Your gutters are responsible for diverting rainwater away from your roof. If they’re clogged or have any leaks, water might spill onto your roof, siding, windows and doors and even seep into your home’s foundation. That’s why contractors strongly recommend routinely cleaning and inspecting your gutters.

Don’t have time for tedious chores? We recommend installing gutter guards. Gutter guards prevent  leaves and other debris from entering and clogging your gutters, reducing the need for maintenance. Keep in mind that gutter guards can only lessen, not eliminate, the need for routine maintenance. Well, every brand except for Gutter Helmet®. It’s the only brand on the market with a Never Clean Your Gutters Again® guarantee

Fix Leaks Right Away 

Have a contractor repair leaks, or sign of moisture damage, as soon as possible. The longer you wait, the higher the chance damage can affect other parts of your exterior.
