This season, weve seen a lot of rain in Northeast Ohio. One of the most commonand importantjobs is preventing water from leaking into your home. At Mr. Level, weve helped both customers who already have water in their basement as well as people who see the water outside of their homes that hasnt made its way into their house yet. Before you give us a call, here are two places to check around your home to prevent water leaks. 1. Gutters Look up: Are your gutters draining the water toward your house or away from it? A quality gutter system will collect the rainwater that runs off your home and deposit onto the ground away from your home. There could be a number of reasons why your gutters are draining water toward your home. Do your gutters need to be cleaned? Leaves and other debris often gets trapped in the system, causing rain water to spill close to the foundation of your home. Are your gutters sagging? You may need to replace the hangars. And dont forget to inspect your downspouts.

This process only cost the customer a few hundred dollars which is much less expensive than if they had called a waterproofer!
