Getting Healthy This Year? Don't Forget About Your Home!

A new year often brings new resolutions. Healthy eating, exercise and less screen time are all things we can do for ourselves.

But have you ever thought about the health of your home? It may seem like an odd thing to consider, but a foundation supports the structure of a building. If your foundation fails, what's going to hold your home up?

Here are some Signs of a Healthy Foundation

Dry

A wet basement is NOT a healthy basement. If you see evidence of water on the walls or floor, it's time for a checkup!

Grading

You don't want the water that falls (or melts) in your yard to run right to your foundation. Make sure your yard slopes away from your home!

Cracks

Foundation cracks are incredibly common. Making sure they are properly filled is what will keep your foundation strong for years.

Downspouts

Whether underground or above, a proper downspout will carry water away from your home. Controlling water keeps a foundation strong!
