April Showers Can Bring May Leaks – Basement Leaks
The phrase “April showers bring May flowers” is a pretty common one, but what many don’t know is that these same April showers can bring May leaks as well! During the winter months, the foundation on your home takes quite a bit of abuse, particularly in the snowy mid-Atlantic region. While these foundation damages may be tough to spot at first, and not present you with any real damage that you can see when winter starts to wind down, the effects become apparent during the cool and wet spring season.
When the rain starts to fall in the spring, your foundation and how it’s held up during the winter is really put to the test. Frequent rain showers, the same showers that grow your garden and create a new fresh start, can be the showers that show you just what your foundation has endured a few short months ago. During April and May, it’s not rare to find new basement leaks springing up in the concrete walls or flooring of your basement, and these will require repair if you wish to keep your home safe and free from mold or damage throughout the rest of the year.
The best way to tackle these leaks is through foundation repair and waterproofing services, and we at AA Action Waterproofing know just what types of repairs are often needed within the mid-Atlantic region after a cold and snowy winter. By making these repairs during the spring, you’re also saving yourself from the damages incurred during the stronger thunderstorms to come during the summer, and this type of preparation can be invaluable.
If you’ve noticed some May leaks springing up after a month of April showers, a foundation repair may be just what you need to take control of the moisture in your home.
