During the spring and summer months, you can expect plenty of rain to fall in the local area. While it may keep you indoors, it’s not the end of the world. After all, rain is good for your lawn, flowers, plants, and more.
However, it’s critical that you prepare your home for wet weather. Neglecting to do so could result in damage. Here’s what you should inspect:
• Roof: You hope your roof is keeping the rain on the outside, but you’ll never know until you inspect it. Check out your attic for leaks. If everything looks good and dry, you don’t have anything to worry about. However, things can change quickly, so get into the habit of inspecting your roof every month.
• Windows: Driving rain has the potential to penetrate your windows, especially if they’re old. Should you see this happening, find out where the water is getting in and then take immediate action.
• Doors: Just the same as windows, doors have the potential to leak. In many cases, a new door is the only way to bring an end to this problem once and for all.
With rainstorms sure to hit the area in the months to come, make sure your home is ready.
