Unwanted water seeping into your home and down your walls can cause structural and property damages as well as electrical hazards.

Windows are an essential component of the house you live in. As intermediaries between the outside and inside of your home, windows are especially vulnerable to large amounts of moisture.

A sunroom, also known as a solarium, is maybe the cleverest way to enjoy nature's beauty and the sun's warmth without leaving your enclosed dwelling. In Latin, the word solarium means “a place of sunlight,” – which is why solariums are also referred to as sunrooms. The solarium is an enclosed room constructed of glass. Whichever term you use, the glass is so thick it enables the sunlight to heat the space even in the colder months of winter.

Fix Leaky Siding

From the looks of it, your siding appears to be the main barrier that keeps rain from permeating your home. While siding sheds water away quickly, without other essential safeguards and layers of protection, siding can't control the rain from seeping into the structure or interior of your home. And like any other building materials, siding ages and weathers with time and eventually breaks down and falls apart.
