Preventing Water Intrusion

By Aryne + Dulcinea, January 13, 2022

Is Water Finding Its Way Into Your Home?

It’s raining a lot right now! The moment water hits the peak of your roof, it rolls down towards your gutters, it has to get off and away from your home. Take a look below at a few ideas to keep your house dry in this rainy weather.

  • Keep your gutters clean and in good condition.
  • Once water comes out of the downspouts, where does it go? Be sure to divert the water at least 6 feet away from your home.
  • Check the slope of the ground around your house – is it sloping toward your home? Be sure it is sloping away to keep water moving in the right direction.
  • Further methods like trench drains, French drains, sump pumps, bioswales, and dry wells could be in order to keep your house free of moisture intrusion.
