Fall has officially arrived, and that means it’s time for homeowners throughout New York to start prepping their basement and lower levels for what could potentially be a very snowy winter.  Whether you’re new to the area and living in a home you recently purchased, or a life-long resident who’s looking to keep everything nice and dry this winter, there are a few simple steps that can be taken to prevent water from building up around the perimeter of your house.

Leaves being cleaned out of gutters

  • Inspect the walls of your foundation to identify any cracks, splits or damage
  • Consider adding a drainage system to your home if you don’t already have one
  • Clean your gutters and downspouts to ensure they’re free of any loose debris
  • Check the integrity and condition of your basement’s windows and storm drains 
  • Have your land’s grade professionally inspected for slopes leading towards the house
  • Contact an experienced basement waterproofing company for an expert inspection
