Did you know that just like your skin, your home can suffer from UV damage? The harmful effects of the sun’s rays cause discoloration, weathering, and cracking that’s just as detrimental to your home as to your body. It can hasten the effects of aging and reduce your home’s attractiveness. Even if you can’t see the damage on the outside, UV degradation can worsen the expansion and contraction of wood siding, window frames, and shutters and weaken the structure of vinyl siding. But there’s good news: sunscreen can help protect both your face and your place.
