Things that Shorten Your Home’s Lifetime
Your house keeps your family safe from many things. In the performance of its duties, it cannot be avoided that your house also exposes itself to certain hazards that may shorten its lifetime. Home repairs can be expensive. Here are some things and issues that may cause your house to age faster than it should.
Lack of Roof Cleaning
Your roof is an integral part of your house. The very reason for its construction is to protect you and your family from environmental assaults such as the rain and the wind during a storm. The roof is also designed to keep your house safe from any foreign body that may cause damage in the interior. Over time the roof collects moss and bird poo. These can cause the roof tiles to become porous and brittle.
Molds and Moss
There is nothing bad about harboring growth of plant life as long as it occurs in the right place. Moss and molds even certain types of fungus that comes in the form of a mushroom is a sign of a very healthy ecosystem but it is not very healthy for your house. Molds and moss collecting on wooden parts of your house means that piece of wood is decomposing and that means your house is on its way to doom.

Heat and Rain

The extremes of temperature can cause the water content in concrete to expand making it prone to cracks. Water can cause would to decompose. When it seeps into the wooden part of your house it attracts another unwanted guest: Mosses and molds.
Wind and Foreign Bodies

The problem comes when the strong winds strike and cause some leaves and branches to be blown against your house.
