Protect Your Home from Heavy Rain

Here are some basic preventive maintenance tips to protect your home from heavy rain this spring:

  1. Clean gutters and downspouts twice a year, ideally spring and fall, to prevent clogs that can cause water damage to your roof.
  2. Inspect your roof for any damage or leaks.
  3. Seal any gaps or cracks in your doors and windows.
  4. Grade the ground around your home to slope away from the foundation.

Review your home insurance policy with your independent agent to make sure it covers water damage.
