Basements in St. Louis during the wet fall months need to be inspected as soon as you notice a leak. It is estimated that over 85% of basements will leak and/or suffer damage at one time or another. So try to prevent leaks into your basement to avoid costly repairs later.
Here are some things do before the rain starts:
- Remove foliage, leaves, and debris away from the exterior of your home.
- Make sure water spouts are directed away from your home and not depositing water near your foundation.
- Make sure that the drainage of water is always away from your house, not toward your foundation.
Is your basement waterproofed? It may be time to look for signs of water or water damage in your basement. Please contact your locally owned and operated Foundation Doctor in St. Louis for all your questions.
