Summer will start officially the next month, and in the Northeast, that means hot and humid days, along with periods of torrential rains.
How well prepared is your basement to handle all that water? If you are not 100% confident that your waterproofing system is in working condition, now is the time to have everything inspected and serviced to avoid unpleasant surprises later in the season.
The Cost of a Flooded Basement
According to FEMA, a single inch of water in your basement can cause an average of $25,000.00 in damages. The numbers are even higher if your basement is finished.
To make matters worse, the typical homeowners insurance doesn’t cover basement water damage, especially from chronic seepage problems or sump pump failure. Flood Insurance also has limitations when it comes to covering basement flooding.
Chances are that you, like many homeowners across the U.S. will have to pay thousands of dollars out of pocket to repair the damages.
