Protect your home from water damage
(NC)—Throughout the year, homeowners across the country have witnessed significant snowfall, rain, wind and even flooding. Heavy snowfall and rains can have a noticeable, and sometimes damaging, effect on the structure of a typical home. For instance, if water seeps through a homeowner's roof, repairs could prove both costly and lengthy, particularly if not adequately addressed the first time.
Protecting your home and minimizing the potential for water damage is a smart investment for the long-term, so understanding what is available is critical.
Homeowners can equip their roof with a modern material like spray foam insulation. This will effectively seal the building envelope and reject bulk water from penetrating.
Spray foam insulation (like that available from Icynene) expands up to 100 times its size to fill every gap and provide a maintenance-free option that works consistently year-round. This solution will fill any gaps or cracks within seconds to help prevent air leakage in the home, a major source of excessive energy wastage.
The advanced properties of spray foam insulation work to reject bulk water as well as provide homeowners with peace of mind and assurance. More information can be found online at www.icynene.com.
