Have you recently inspected your home’s exterior for visible signs of areas where water could enter the structure? Our North Eugene and Northwest Lane County team offers these tips for inspecting and repairing your home’s exterior.

Inspect and Repair Your Home’s Exterior

Inspect your home’s exterior by looking for any place where water can enter the house and make repairs as needed.

  • Caulk and seal windows
  • Inspect the roof for missing and aging shingles
  • Check your rain gutters and remove any debris that may be clogging them
  • Check your downspouts and clear any clogs and make sure they are draining away from the house
  • Gutter guards are an excellent way to prevent clogs and water intrusion into the house
  • Check your sprinkler systems and make sure they are not spraying water into the house and that water is not pooling around the home’s foundation
  • Make sure water drains away from the building.Water is invasive and will quickly find its way into a structure when water is allowed to pool around the foundation. After a storm, or when the ground is saturated by rainwater, the water may enter the foundation wall through any cracks.
