How to Keep your Basement from Flooding During a Rain Storm – Boston, MA

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, April 27, 2017

We are heading into Thunderstorm season and have been getting a lot of rain in Massachusetts. A1 Foundation Crack Repair has been getting a lot of calls from people who have water infiltration and want the work done.

Here are some quick ideas you can do before or during that storm.

1. Make sure your downspouts are attached to the house. Then, with the downspouts, make sure the extenders are in-place running water away from the house. Because if the downspouts or the extenders are not on there, the water is running right next to the foundation.

2. If you have a leak by the bulkhead, get a blue or green top and put it over you bulkhead door and secure it and hope that keeps the water away for the time being.

3. If water is coming in, get things on the floor raised. Get as much stuff off the floor as possible.
