We’ve had a steady rain for the last few days in the Lynchburg area, and this always results in multiple phone calls to Steam Way regarding rain water coming in through foundations or basement doors. One of the most common culprits is the detached or clogged gutter. If your home is prone to this type of damage, double check your gutters and downspouts to make sure they are in good working order. A simple fix like this could save you hundreds of dollars. Also, remember that surface water is not typically covered by your homeowners policy.
