Prevent Water Damage

As it starts to get cold, it's important to take steps to prevent damage to your home or business to avoid costly repairs.  Here is a helpful checklist to help prepare your property for the winter months.

  • Ensure Good Drainage

    • Clean your Gutters
    • Direct downspouts 5-10' away from the house
    • Slope your yard away from the foundation
  • Test Your Sump Pump

    • Check your sump pump once a year
    • Test more frequently during storm season
  • Fix Water Leaks

    • Repair any noticeable dripping pipes
    • Check for dark spots under pipes and on ceilings
    • Repair any cracked caulking
    • Inspect the roof for missing, loose or damaged shingles
