As fall begins, it is important we prepare our homes for the coming winter weather. Homeowners can implement a list of items to ensure their home is prepared and protected from impending elements.
Here are a few maintenance tips you can check off your list this fall:
Examine Your Foundation for Cracks and Bulges – Your home’s foundation is one of the most essential parts of your home. Cold rain and winter snow will find their way into any existing cracks in the foundation walls. When the moisture freezes, the cracks expand. Address wall cracks as soon as you see them to avoid long-term damage.
Clean Gutters – Avoid flooding by ensuring your gutters are cleaned out before it is too cold to do so. If water is not properly routed away from your foundation, it could pool up around the base of your home and leak inside.
Inspect Your Existing Drainage System – If you have an existing drainage system, be sure it is ready for any rain or snow melt. 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. The experts at BQ Basements & Concrete can help inspect and repair any foundation or waterproofing issues that may concern you. Give us a call today at (215) 709-6225
