Signs of Exterior Damage to Your Home

Your home’s siding, roofing, windows, and other exterior features do more than make for excellent curb appeal. The exterior elements of your home protect it from harsh Chicagoland temperatures, damaging sunlight, and blustering wind. When there is even small damage done to your home’s exterior, there is serious potential for consequences ranging from flooding to increased energy bills. 

As you take time this season to clean up your yard and property before winter arrives, be sure to inspect your house exterior as well. If you notice signs of damage, call in the professionals at Stanley Exteriors. Our team of experienced craftsmen is ready to replace or repair exterior elements from windows to roofing, siding to soffit, and everything in between.

Gaps in Window Seals

There’s nothing quite worse than a drafty window. Assure your home is safe from winter winds by inspecting the seal around each window of your home, inside and out.

Shingle Discoloration

Your roof shingles can show wear and tear easily, and you don’t need a ladder to see if there is potential damage. Instead, look at your roof and determine if there are any missing or damaged shingles. Discolored shingles can point to wear and tear, or to mold. In either case, you need repair before winter arrives.

Dents in Siding

Your siding is your home’s first line of defense from temperature, wind, and weather. Look for small holes or dents around your entire home, keeping your eyes peeled for signs of critters trying to get in as well.

Bricks in Disrepair

If your home or chimney is made of brick, determine if any bricks are loose or needing attention. Our tuckpointing service at Stanley Exteriors can make your bricks look – and function – like they are brand new.

Clogged Gutters

If your gutters are clogged or broken, you are at an increased risk for flooding this autumn. If you notice any gutter or soffit damage, get it repaired sooner than later.

Don’t delay in repairing or replacing exterior elements of your home. Call the team at Stanley Exteriors to talk more about your concerns and to set up a consultation.
