Intense Rainfall on a Metal Roof

If Heavy Rain Has You Concerned About Water Damage, Follow These Helpful Tips!

With hurricane-inspired weather conditions, many Virginia homes could be in danger of flooding. Thankfully, there are steps you can take as a homeowner to protect your property. If your home is situated in a neighborhood that’s prone to flooding, these preparations will help you stave off expensive flood restoration!

How Can I Protect My House from Water Damage?

 

Primary Roofing Maintenance

There are many aspects of home design that build towards safer water protection. One of the most important aspects however, is your roofing system. If you haven’t already schedule this year’s inspection, start by coordinating with your local roofer. Ensure all your shingles, tiles, etc. are properly adhered and sealed for maximum rain protection. This includes your roof flashing in the valleys and edges (plus around your chimney).

Repairing Your Gutter System

Next, you’ll want to take a good look at your gutters. Tighten them as needed against your fascia board. You’ll also want to make sure your gutters are emptied of any leaves, dirt, and miscellaneous debris. Keep this in mind: your gutters should always direct rain away from your foundation. You can always extend your gutter drain away from the house. If your gutters are leaking or splashing water against the wall, it may be time for professional gutter repair.

Further steps you can take to safeguard your property include: grading your lawn away from the house, installing a sump pump (and a secondary pump) to drain water, and installing a ground level drain. With these steps your home should be much safer from water damage during the coming storms.
