5 Tips You Can Use Now To Avoid Water Damage

Share

 

April showers bring May flowers. Although a little water never hurt anybody, a downpour can cause unwanted water damage like roof leaks or water in your basement. Never fear, maintain your home with these smart tips and you’ll be safe and dry.

Clean your gutters. Keep gutters clear of debris and damage-free by directing water away from your house with the use of downspout extensions.

Cover your wells. Use plastic covers to keep rain out of your window wells — to prevent a wet basement.

Repair Roof. Give your roof a once-over seasonally to make sure you don’t have any missing shingles, repair any damage and keep your flashing sealed to keep water running off the roof, not into your home.

Strong Foundation. Angle the ground away from our foundation and plant landscaping at least 3 feet from your foundation to keep water from seeping in. Be sure to police your foundation for cracks and keep them filled to avoid water damage.

Pump maintenance. Check your sump pump regularly—they only work to avoid mishaps if they are functioning properly. Call a professional if your sewer backs up.
