Water Damage Water Damage Prevention and Your Frankfort Home 5 ways to protect yourself from water damage this spring

Melting snow and spring rains can mean serious flooding problems for homeowners this time of year.  However, there are a few simple things you can do to protect yourself from springtime flooding:

Cover your window wells.  Use plastic covers to keep excessive rain from pooling in the bottom of your window wells.

Keep your gutters clean and in good working order.  Extend your downspouts or use drain tile to direct water away from your foundation.

Inspect and repair your roof.  Replace missing and damaged shingles, and replace any cracked caulk/sealant around flashing.

Inspect your basement/foundation for cracks and holes.  The faster you fix cracks before they can grow, the easier and cheaper the repairs will be.

Check your sump pump.  Make sure your pump turns on and ejects water as it is supposed to.  An improperly functioning sump pump can lead to major flooding and water damage!
