Preventing Spring Rain Damage
Spring is just around the corner and that means so is the rain. Like they say, Spring showers bring May flowers. But Spring storms often bring flooding and storm damage as well. Here are some tips to help prevent Spring storm damage in Zanesville and Cambridge:
- Clean out your gutters and downspouts- this prevents clogging that will add weight to your roof causing roof damage and possible roof collapse
- Seal windows, doors, and roof- these areas are prone to heavy storm waters leaking through
- Search for cracks in your foundation- even small cracks in you foundation can cause major damage as water sits in the ground and seeps into your home
- Install a backflow valve in your basement to prevent sewage backup- when there are heavy rains, the city sewage system becomes overwhelmed often leaving you with the problem of backflow.
