When protecting your home from water damage, there are two primary concerns: rain and flooding. Both can come unexpectedly, or work themselves into our north woods over the course of a few days. It’s important to protect your home from water damage, top to bottom. Here’s some information on managing rain intrusions with interlocking metal roofing panels.
Keeping water out during rain depends heavily on a secure and well-maintained roof system. That maintenance, on longer-term roofs, can require occasional replacement of sealants on the roof or replacement of exposed fasteners if present. Whereas short-term roofs that last 15 years can have sealants that will last the same length of time, exposed sealants will not last the life of more permanent roof systems.
When the wind kicks up, regular roofing shingles are affected, damaged and sometimes…go flying. When it’s raining, before, after or during a windstorm, your home lacks protection. Water can come in through the smallest of roof areas and wreak havoc on the integrity of your roof decking, insulation, attic, and eventually, your living space.

Preventing Water Damage
Preventing water damage also requires maintaining sealants around windows and doors. These sealants typically need to be replaced at least every 15 years. Failed sealants can allow water to get into the walls of your home where it will cause rot and mold to develop unseen.
