What Are The Major Sources Of Flooding And Water Damage?
There are many different ways that your basement and foundation can become flooded — not just storms and ordinary rainwater.
While heavy rains and storms are responsible for a good portion of flooding and water damage, there are other situations to be aware of.
This is especially true for people who have a basement. The well-being of your basement is crucial to your home’s foundation and thus, its overall safety and value.
You can contact AA Action Waterproofing any time to get preventative waterproofing done on your basement. We also resolve mold issues and provide the best foundation repairs in the industry.
However, it’s important to be an informed consumer. The more you know, the more action you will be able to take to reduce the cost of service and protect yourself from expensive repair bills in the future.
So, what are the top sources of flooding in our region? Let’s review:
Ground water can be the invisible cause of major damage to your foundation. It often takes several months before a homeowner will spot visible signs of ground water damage. Ground water can be a significant issue in our area during the winter thaw.
Improperly Drained Rain Water
Even if it doesn’t rain enough to cause significant flooding, rain can still contribute to problems over time. Does your lawn slope toward your home rather than away from it? What about your driveway? Poor water drainage can lead to foundation damage.
Sudden, Significant Storms
Of course, major storms are a key contributor to flooding issues. The Polar Vortex shows that we have to be on our guard for potential flooding throughout the year. It is a good idea to reach out to waterproofing experts in winter for better spring and summer protection.
