Special Problems Created by Snow 

Here are just a few examples of problems created by snow:

During the winter, snow creates it's own problems for basements. When the ground is frozen and snow melts, the run-off sometimes has no where to go except toward your foundation where it can seep into the ground and into the cracks and fissures of the walls. Gutters and downspouts can freeze resulting in melting snow and water running over the gutters. Good grading is necessary to keep melting snow away from the foundation. De-icing cables near the edge of the roof and in the gutters and downspouts can prevent ice build up. Do not pile snow against the house.

Make sure sump pump discharges do not have any low spots where water can collect and freeze. A frozen discharge pipe can create basement flooding. For more information or to schedule a free inspection and  estimate, please ask for Owner/Operator Terry Chubb at 216.732.8485 or 440.942.1169.
