What are the top causes of home water damage? Would you put rain on your list?

When asked how water damage happens, homeowners cite various problems like severe floods. But there are other ways for water to damage your property, too.

You may also think about problems like sewer backups. Problems with plumbing in the kitchen and bathroom can also do their share of water damage. Those issues are well-known, and homeowners usually know what to do to prevent them.

But some types of water damage actually worsen over time. That includes the damage that heavy rains bring. Because rain is a common fixture in most forecasts, we don’t think much about it. But if your home has any maintenance issues, rain can cause damage that will get progressively worse.

Avoid Heavy Rain Damage This Season

The projects on this “to-do” list can help you ensure your home is safer from water damage. If you haven’t already considered them, now is a great time to explore these options and make changes to your home.

Correct any yard drainage issues. Knowing how your yard drains is vital to protecting your home. If you notice that your yard is draining toward your home, then you might want to get in touch with a landscaping expert to look for ways to protect your yard.

Landscape with native plants. If you do a little homework, the flowers and shrubs you use to help you landscape your home and add curb appeal can also become an added layer of protection. Native plants can help.

Consider sealing your roof. Experts estimate that almost 95% of damage is caused by water finding its way through gaps in your shingles, which can be prevented with this step.
