For homeowners, spring can be a beautiful time of the year, but damaging spring storms can spring up at any time and if your property is not prepared, springtime can be costly.
Spring storms can be dangerous and leave behind fallen trees, loose shingles leaky roofs, and cause significant damaged to your property. Here are five ways to prepare yourself for unpredictable spring storms.
1. Clean Your Gutters and Downspouts
Make sure you clean your gutters properly. Check if there are any blockages that happened during the winter months. Clogged gutters, downspouts can lead to roof damage and compromise its structure, especially during a storm.
2. Inspect Your Roof
Inspect your roof for any damage and make sure it is fixed before any bad weather sets in. Additionally, leaking roofs can invite mold growth and cause additional damage to your home. Cracked tiles and shingles need to be replaced immediately.
3. Check the Exterior of Your Home for any Damages
You should check the exterior your home and property and look for visible damage. Check for any cracks on your walls and siding. Your foundation should also be checked for signs of cracks or settling.
4. Seal Your Doors and Windows
If you live in an area that is prone to frequent storms, you need to make sure that all your doors, windows are properly sealed. Constant exposure to rainfall can deteriorate even impact-resistant windows over time. Check if the seals of your windows are still intact, and spot for any damage that needs repairing.
5. Install a Backflow Valve
Finally, you should install a backflow valve in the basement of your home. Constant heavy rainfall can overflow the sewers in your local area, which can back flood into your home’s sewage system. To prevent future costly damage, consider having a backflow valve installed by our team from Stratum Structural Systems.
