Whether or not your home can handle a rainstorm is based on a few very important details. Here are several questions that you need to answer:

·      How old is your roof?

·      When was the last time you had your roof inspected?

·      Do your gutters do a good job of moving rainwater away from your home?

·      Do you recognize any signs of interior water damage after a rainstorm?

·      Is heavy rain often too much for your gutters to handle?

It’s imperative that your home is ready to handle heavy rain this summer. Sure, you hope that the rain stays away for the most part, but you know this won’t be entirely true. At some point, a big storm will hit and your home will need to stand up to the water.

If you have any reason to believe your home is not capable of dealing with a heavy storm, now is the time to learn more. Maybe your roof is old. Or maybe you have a flat roof in need of repair.
