Severe Storms Don't Have to be Your Enemy!

4/30/2021 (Permalink)

Are you a homeowner in Avon, OH? Severe storms don’t have to be your enemy.

While rain water in by itself doesn’t pose a huge threat, rainstorms that are heavy and occur over several days can expose your home to water damage. Here are a few tips you can take to reduce water damage risks:

Check your roof

If your roof is in good condition many risks are eliminated. Your roof is your first line of defense from water damage. When you have loose shingles or cracks this can quickly lead to internal water damage in your attic or ceiling. If you’re unsure the condition of your roof, call in a professional to check it out so you are prepared for Spring and Summer storms!

Inspect Your Gutters

Having well running gutters in place can be critical when experiencing heavy rainfall. Gutters help keep water away from your foundation and entering basements, so it’s important to keep them clear. When you direct water away from your foundation you eliminate the risk of puddling around it which in turn will seep into the ground. Downspouts should be installed to direct water 5-10 feet away from your home. Doing so, will help greatly reduce risk for water damage after a storm.

Checking these two things this spring will help reduce your risk for water damage after heavy rains. But as always, we are ready to help 24/7 if you find yourself with water damage or storm damage.
