Preventing water damage in the basement
Thousands of home insurance claims are filed every year. Some losses are major, others aren’t, but they’re always an inconvenience—and usually avoidable! As prevention advisors, we inspect and make recommendations on numerous buildings every year.
Protect your investment
Being a homeowner comes with its share of responsibilities. Protecting your investment requires regular maintenance and a dose of foresight.
Things you can do to protect your investment
Sealing cracks before they get worse, checking the backwater valve to avoid a sewer backup, extending downspouts to prevent water seepage. It’s a lot of work to maintain a home, but nowhere near as much as having to clean up after sustaining water damage in your basement!
