The High Cost of Water Damage

The High Cost of Water Damage

Each year water causes billions of dollars in property damage and the longer water damage is left untreated the higher will be the cost of repairs. Exterior repairs can help protect your home’s exterior. Water will naturally find the path of least resistance and will seep inside structures through damaged irrigation systems, broken downspouts, leaking roofs, failing seals around windows and doors and from severe weather events and snowmelt. SERVPRO® of Southern Delaware County & West Chester offers these tips form the Insurance Information Institute to repair and protect your home’s exterior from water damage:

  • Caulk and seal windows 
  • Inspect your roof for missing, damaged and aging shingles and make necessary repairs
  • Remove debris that may have accumulated in downspouts and rain gutters
  • Position downspouts so that they direct water away from the house
  • Check sprinklers and irrigation systems to be sure they are not creating water damage to the walls and foundations of the house
  • Turn off and drain outside faucets to protect against frozen pipes
  • Install gutter guards to prevent gutter clogs and keep water flowing away from the house
