Scorching Temperatures Vs. Your Siding
The heat does not play nice when it comes to your home’s siding. Exposure to high temperatures can be detrimental to the structural integrity of your house depending on the materials your facings are made of.
When your siding shows the effects of sun damage, it is no longer functioning at its fullest capacity as a protective seal. Audible noises, such as sharp popping sounds from your walls, are one of the most common signs that your facings need to be looked at.
Vinyl siding does not always react well to summer temps. Some facings are not very durable, causing them to require replacements often. Vinyl siding also needs to be installed professionally.
Sloppy positioning can cause the panels to warp, buckle, or melt as your home expands and contracts. At Window World TX, we know just how to install your facings, making sure to find you the most energy-efficient siding for your home and prevent substantial damages.
Brickstone siding is a special masonry facing that is incredibly versatile and reliable. It can be installed on any foundation or wall and match any stone or brick.
This solid siding is full of potential when it comes to protective barriers, leaving your home well secured no matter the weather conditions.
Sizzling Heat Waves Vs. Your Paint
The sun’s rays can cause paint to fade relatively quickly. During severe hot spells, it’s not uncommon for homeowners to notice their paint peeling, chipping, or dripping off their walls. Painted siding can also show the effects of rising temperatures through the color pulling off the panels.
Sweltering Summers Vs. Your Roof
Rooftop heat damage is hard for the untrained eye to recognize, yet disfigurement can occur over the years if proper precautions are not taken into consideration.
If your home has an attic, your roof may be more vulnerable to rising temperatures than you realize. Heat and humidity can easily become trapped in an attic, allowing moisture to warp your roof materials.
If you want to protect your roof, you should look into:
- Purchasing a dehumidifier
- Buying a fan for the attic
- Maintaining air ducts
- Coating/sealing your roof from moisture
- Improving your ventilation
