San Antonio, Texas welcomes the warm weather accompanied by rainfall. Recently, Texas experienced strong storms and heavy rains:

Texas is bracing for two more days of wet and wild weather — perhaps as much rain for San Antonio and Austin as they have received all year.

On Monday, strong storms battered the state, pelting some places with hail the size of golf balls. Power was knocked out for more than 50,000 homes and businesses in North Texas, and hundreds of flights were scrapped or delayed at Dallas-Fort Worth.

Forecasters said that Austin, San Antonio and the suburbs of Houston were all at risk of flash floods on Tuesday. The threat is part of a storm system expected to drench a swath of the country from Texas to New York and Florida by Wednesday night.

Heavy rain is never easy to deal with. Your home should therefore be prepared for anything. Check your roof and siding for any signs of damage due to aging or sudden weather changes. The surfaces could be uneven, the nails could already be rusty or missing or the paint might already be fading. Some parts may have mold or water stains, or worse, termites. If you see any of these symptoms, you’d better contact siding contractors in San Antonio TX immediately. You do not want any major damage to develop in your home because it will be far more expensive to repair.
