Potential causes of waterproofing problems

There are a lot of factors that could contribute to waterproofing issues, but these are some of the most common: The originally installed waterproofing system has deteriorated There are cracks in the foundation Gutters are clogged or misdirecting water

Dealing with snowmelt

Take steps to protect your home from snowmelt so that it does not lead to water intrusion issues.

In the winter, make sure to perform any necessary sump pump maintenance, fill in any spaces between floors and walls, and repair cracks in floors and walls. Also make sure to keep snow away from your home, instead of letting it pile up against the sides of your home. Get your gutters and downspouts cleaned as well, since they will have to handle all the melting snow from your roof.

In the spring, have your gutters checked for damage from snow. Summer weather increases the risk for mold and mildew growth, so keep an eye out for warning signs. When fall arrives, prepare for winter and snow by cleaning your gutters and downspouts.
