Fall leaves clog a rain gutter. We are leaders in storm damage restoration services in Macomb County.

September 22 marks the beginning of fall, and it’s never too early to prepare your home for fall and winter weather. Our Mount Clemens and New Baltimore team offer these tips from the Insurance Information Institute to keep your home protected from unwanted stormwater:

 Inspect and Repair Your Home’s Exterior

You can prevent water from entering your home by inspecting your home’s exterior for any place where water can enter the house and making repairs as needed.

  • Caulk and seal windows
  • Inspect the roof for missing and aging shingles
  • Check your rain gutters and remove any debris that may be clogging them
  • Check your downspouts and clear any clogs and make sure they are draining away from the house
  • Gutter guards are an excellent way to prevent clogs and water intrusion into the house
  • Check your sprinkler systems and make sure they are not spraying water into the place and that water is not pooling around the home’s foundation
    • Make sure water drains away from the building.Water is invasive and will quickly find its way into a structure when water is allowed to pool around the foundation. After a storm, or when the ground is already saturated by rainwater, the water may enter the foundation wall through cracks.
