Post-rain inspection for the Homeowner.
How about that rain? Now is a great time to check your home for water issues.
When it rains hard in Colorado (like the storms last week!) take that opportunity to see how your home has handled the water. I recommend having a professional look over your home every year, but you can do this one on your own. Here is a quick (10 min) post-rain inspection anyone can do:
1) CHECK for pooling. Take a walk around your home and look for any water pooling, especially near the foundation.
2) CHECK for leaks. Take a peek in the attic and look at the ceilings. Look for any signs of water intrusion or leaks from the roof.
3) CHECK gutter system. Downspouts and gutters are essential to controlling the water from your roof. Look for clogs and loose/broken connections.

Any questions? Give me a call!

I think you are right about checking for pooling. My gutters must have a blockage somewhere. I’ll have to have someone come out and do an inspection.
