It seems like just last week we were all talking about how Winter was on its way.  Despite the recent snow storm which dumped a good amount of snow throughout the East Coast, it’s March, and warm weather is on it’s way.  I think everyone looks forward to spring.  Something about the leaves coming back, birds chirping and more daylight brings a bit of joy to all of us.

Spring also brings a good amount of rain.  While we need this to help bring all the greenery back, rain can cause some serious problems to homes and businesses that aren’t water tight.  Generally leaking and damaged roofs play the biggest roll in the destruction because those problems aren’t as easy to spot and create issues slowly.  Leaking basements and clogged gutters will also be big headaches for homeowners during these wet months to come.

The best bet for all home and business owners is to do a sort of spring cleaning for their building.  Have a local replacement roofing company come inspect your roof to ensure shingles aren’t missing and leaks aren’t going to turn your Summer into one home improvement project after another.  The same roofing inspection contractor can check your gutters for clogs and damage.  Have a concrete or basement waterproofing contractor do a quick check of your home’s foundation to make sure you won’t wake up to a surprise flood in your game room!

These skilled contractors should be able to not only inspect your home but discuss all of your repair, replacement or installation options to have your home or office in top shape for the rainy season.  Get started on your home improvement inspection as soon as possible, look Mother Nature in the eyes this spring and laugh in her face.
