April Showers Bring May Flowers

3/30/2018 (Permalink)

We all know the “April Showers Bring May Flowers” rhyme from our childhood, but those April showers can also bring water damage to your home.

Often we see home owners call about sewer drain back up, and find they have the coverage but have a cap on that coverage.  It is very important for a homeowner to know their policy, so they do not find a large out of pocket expense when those spring rains start over flowering their sewer drains. 

Another loss that we find in the spring time are related to the gutters.  The winds start kicking up debris into the gutters or the gutters were not cleaned in the previous fall before winter struck and now there is water damage in the ceilings of home from full gutters. 

Also, with the wind, rain, and hail we find roof damage and damage from tree branches rise in the spring as well.  If a strong storm roars through, you may find your siding damaged by hail and shingles that the wind ripped off the roof. When wind blows shingles from your roof, it makes your home vulnerable to rain, creating the need for emergency roof repair, and water mitigation in your home as well. Make sure that you are taking care of droopy tree branches, and checking the shingles on your roof to see what sort of damage may have occurred during the winter.

Water damage is never fun to deal with as a homeowner. If you experience damage from those spring showers, remember SERVPRO of LaGrange Park/North Riverside is always here to help. Give us a call at 708-240-4873.
