Spring is an important time for home maintenance.
It is crucial to check for winter weather damage and prepare your home for the upcoming wet season.
Here are a few maintenance tips you can check off your list this spring:
Examine Your Foundation for Cracks and Bulges
Your home’s foundation is one of the most essential parts of your home. Winter weather could have put extra pressure on your home’s foundation, causing stair-step cracks or bulging walls. Do a visual inspection around your home to look for these issues.
Winter debris could be blocking your gutters. Avoid flooding by ensuring your gutters are cleaned out before the first spring rainstorm. If water is not properly routed away from your foundation, it could pool up around the base of your home and leak inside. This can create much larger problems down the line if not properly addressed.
Inspect Your Existing Drainage System
With an influx of rain on the horizon, you want to be sure an existing drainage system is prepared. Clean any debris from the exterior drainage and make sure your sump pump is working properly.
Consult a foundation repair specialist if you think you may have a problem.
