Rain gutter letting out water Follow these tips to keep your home or building safe during a storm

Heavy rainstorms have been common in New England throughout 2021. Making driving difficult and flooding basements, this natural weather event is impossible to prevent. But, it is possible to be prepared and prevent damage from occurring to your building or home. 

Preparing Your Home/Building:

  • Get your roof and gutters inspected to ensure good condition before the rain falls. Remove leaves or debris from gutters throughout the year.
  • Check the inside of the house to be sure there are no signs of water leaks—mold, water rings, or paint discoloration. These can be signs of water entering your house. 
  • Inspect doors and windows to make sure their sealants are working properly.
  • Cut down dead branches from trees in your yard, which can fall on or around your house during a storm.
  • Have sandbags ready to put in low areas of your house to keep water outside during a flood.
  • Move furniture to higher floors to prevent water damage.
