With all of the rain that has come to Knoxville, many people have found their basements to be flooded with several inches of water. There are precautions to take in order to prevent flooding. If you discover that windows or vents are the reason for flooding, you’ll want to fix the sealants around them. Call a foundation repair specialist if you notice any cracks or damage to your foundation. If you notice your gutters are leaking, allowing large puddles to form around the home instead of being directed through the pipes below the home, excess water can make it’s way easily underneath your home and into your basement.
