GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. — Charles Thayer, founder of All Around, talks about the different ways extreme heat can impact your home’s exterior. Here are some things for homeowners to keep an eye on:
-Installation failures in vinyl siding will show during hot weather, when the siding begins to buckle or warp.
-Window seal failures happen most often during extreme temperature swings, when it is very hot or very cold.
-Air Conditioners will work much better when the outside fins are kept clean, especially during extreme heat.
-Shingles can crack and fail prematurely during extreme heat when a home is under insulated and/or the attic space is under ventilated.
