Sun Damage to Florida Homes

There’s been a lot of talk recently about extreme weather causing water and wind damage to homes and the necessity of being vigilant for weaknesses in home structure that could lead to this water and wind damage.

But don’t forget about sun damage over the long haul.  Florida’s sun can dry up caulking and lead to energy loss from heating during cold weather and from air-conditioning during our long hot summers (remember them!)

Also decks, fences, and other outdoor wood need periodic waterproof painting/staining to maintain their value and integrity

So we encourage homeowners to have overall inspections to insure that they keep their homes in top shape for all of our Florida weather.
