Winter weather created some tricky water problems for homeowners this season. If you were unfortunate enough to have water coming in from the eaves of your roof or not coming in at all due to frozen water lines, you were not alone.
Alas, our water house issues are not yet over as the snow and ice is melting and the resulting water will soon be joined by joyful April showers!
All that water is going somewhere, so time to take a quick check to make sure the destination is somewhere other than your basement. Don’t wait for spring cleaning - check now to ensure that all the gutters are even against the roof line and the down spout is securely attached to the drain pipe. Pick up the shovel for the last time this season and clear remaining ice and snow away from the basement line.
You’ll be happy you made the effort when it’s time to check for mold in the summer.
