The Effects of Rainwater on Your Richmond Heights Home
Springtime in Northeast Ohio is full of thunderstorms. Rain is common during this time, and it can have multiple effects on the exterior and even the interior of your home.
To avoid damage to your home when thunderstorms head your way, make sure your home is prepared. Below are a few ways you can prepare your Richmond Heights home for thunderstorms:
- Prepare Your Roof - Patch up any loose shingles on your roof. Do not wait too long to replace your roof if it is time for a new one. Damages that can occur are likely to be more costly than a new roof!
- Clean Your Gutters - Clogged gutters can cause water to seep into your home. When water gets into your home it can cause damage to your walls, ceiling, floors and more.
- Waterproof Your Basement - If you have a basement, make sure it is waterproofed! If it is not waterproofed, you are much more susceptible to floods in your basement. This damages not only the basement walls and floors, but also the contents, costing thousands in damage.
