Living in Cooler Climates
As the weather gets colder and the humidity starts to rise, mold becomes stronger. It can rapidly grow when left untreated and over time your roof will start to degrade in structure. When this starts to happen you will be able to see various signs. Looking at your roof from outside, if you see puddling occurring then the roof needs repair. The puddling is a sign of the roof caving in, which can be disastrous.
Although, leaks can appear in other forms, too. Your windows are perfect places to let your paid for warm air outside. One way to determine where the leak is coming from, though, is using a flame. Holding the flame up to your window, you will place it in various positions and see if the flame ever bends at a certain spot. A bent flame means air is coming in from outside and will need to be fixed.
Understandably, you can do this yourself to save on costs. However, doing it improperly can result in an ineffective window and can cost you some major money. Working with a professional will ensure the job is done properly. In addition to a properly secured house, you will also save money on your utility bill.
