Downspouts, Gutters And Trees

Filed under: Uncategorized — Picasso @ 6:24 pm

Any basement can be damp or wet, however there are some things you can address before involving a professional.  For one, make certain your downspouts and gutters are clean and functioning.  The best way to check them is to inspect during a rain event!  If you spot a problem, for example, water topping the gutter or downspouts pouring water onto your foundation or basement wall, you may find a bit of maintenance will save you money by preventing a problem in the basement from developing.

Also, tree roots from older, established trees too close to the foundation can cause water intrusion and stress the foundation, potentially causing serious damage.  It’s always good to get a second opinion from a professional if you are in doubt about the extent of your problem.
