Hi there, I'm Udon Pollack. I am passionate about protecting foundations from flood damage. The foundation is the only thing connecting the house to the ground. It keeps the home standing through heavy storms and small land shifts. Every once in a while, foundations will develop cracks that let water seep through the walls. As a result, the basement may flood during the next heavy storm. In addition, water coming through the cracks continues to weaken the foundation. Luckily, people can have their foundations sealed up by a professional to stop this harmful progression. I will teach everyone the basics of flooded basement repairs through this site. Everyone deserves to have a sturdy home set on a strong foundation and I'm here to help people understand how to accomplish that feat. Thanks for visiting my site. Come back soon.

A new heater is also a good way to reduce leaks and water damage from holes that show up across the tank area. In many instances, the new appliance can be easily swapped with your old one. This is not the case though, if your hot water was previously provided by an oil boiler or other type of furnace.

If the roof on your house is shot, you will need to replace it before it starts leaking.
