Spring in Chicago is notorious for heavy rainfall and the flooding that ensues. With the intense and deadly storms that have already caused serious problems across the bottom part of our state, you can be sure that Chicago will not be left unscathed. Maybe we don’t have to worry about tornadoes, but 2 feet of water in your basement can be a disaster for any homeowner. Four Seasons can help you protect your home in a couple of ways, and keeping water away from your home could also protect your furnace and air conditioner.
Causing Costly Damage
A flooded basement causes irreparable damage to the items in your basement. Think of the number of valuable items in your basement. For most of us these valuable items include the furnace, air conditioner, washer, dryer, and water heater. Even a few inches of water can cause damage that demands the replacement of these systems. So, now is the time to add some protection and Four Seasons can help.
Two Affordable Improvements:
- Gutter Repair and Improvement: Over packed gutters, gutters that droop and sag, and gutters that don’t have long enough downspout extensions can all create a flooding risk. Having a Four Seasons handyman clean, assess and repair your gutters can help direct water further away from the foundation of the home. This will help prevent the ground around the foundation from becoming saturated. (more…)
