Prepare your home for Rain

10/3/2019 (Permalink)

The time to prepare your home for the rainy season is before the rains hit!

It’s not fun to discover a leaking roof or windows in the middle of a thunderstorm. Some problems are unforeseeable, but others can be avoided with a check up of your home.


Inspect for loose or missing shingles.            Check that flashing is in good condition.        Make sure tree branches are trimmed away from the roof.                                                          If there are any concerns, it is a good idea to get a roofer out to inspect before the rains start.


Clean gutters of debris including the downspouts.  Make sure there is adequate drainage, so water does not build up around foundation.


Check that all windows close securely.        Inspect caulking to ensure windows are properly sealed.


Look for any cracks that will allow water to get in. Use landscaping to direct water away from your home’s foundation.                                           A sump pump may be needed if you have frequent flooding.

 If water does get in your home, it needs to be addressed right away.
