Don't Let Water Damage Destroy Your East Bradenton /Lakewood Ranch Home or Business
There are some simple things you can do to protect your home or business. For example, update your windows and doors. Look for watertight options in new windows and doors. Older wood windows should be cleaned, repainted and re-stained periodically. Cracks in trim should be resealed. Glazing compound around older windows should be replaced as needed.
It's a good idea to regularly check your roof for signs of damage, such as excessive wear on shingles or missing shingles. Contacting a plumber to inspect the condition of the pipes in your home. Much home piping has a lifespan of 50 to 80 years, PVC pipes may need to be replaced every 25 to 40 years. You may need to add or update drainage. Use gutters and downspouts to make sure water is diverted away from your home and its foundation.
If water damage has been a serious problem in your home's lower level try adding a sump pump. Choose a cast iron pump, which may last longer, and consider buying a backup battery-powered pump in case the power goes out. Test your pump twice a year or as suggested by the manufacturer. Seal your basement. Thick coatings, paint and silicate-based sealers may help minimize or prevent water damage. Each method varies in application and cost. Remember to replace washing machine supply hoses. Plan for new ones every three to five years as part of a proactive maintenance plan.
No matter how much you prepare with regular maintenance, water damage can still be a frightening reality.
