Protect Your Home From Springtime Basement Flooding

Protect Your Home From Springtime Basement Flooding

After heavy spring snows, incidents of basement water damage increase here in Colorado. Melting snow causes the ground to become more and more saturated as temperatures rise. The majority of these incidents are due to issues with basement sump pumps and clogged up water spouts. Here are some tips to protect your home from being flooded this spring.

 

1. Inspect & Test Your Sump Pump. Check the pump to make sure it is clear of any debris that could cause an issue when ground saturation occurs. Test the pump by adding a few gallons of water to the reservoir to make sure it is functioning properly.

2. Inspect Water Spouts. Do some basic investigating to ensure that your water spouts have not been clogged up with debris over the fall & winter. Not maintaining these items can cause significant damage to the foundation and other components. Clean gutters, and check how the water flows inside the gutter to ensure proper pitch and termination into the downspouts.

3.Plan Ahead. Consider purchasing a back-up pump in case your primary pump fails during high-water times. This could save you a big chunk of change in the event of a failure.

5 Tips for Increasing Your Home’s Selling Price

5 Tips for Increasing Your Home’s Selling Price

Even the simplest measures can make a big difference when you list your home for sale. Here are 5 of the most effective ways to increase the value of your home before you put it on the market.

Fresh Paint.
Simple and cost-efficient, one of the most effective improvements of all is paint! Freshly painted rooms give a clean and update look, adding to the perceived value of your home. Select neutral colors that appeal to the greatest number of people, making your home more desirable.

New Carpet.
Nothing turns buyers off more than knowing that they will need to take on the task of replacing old, worn out or stained carpeting. Start by replacing the most worn out or stained carpet first and replace the others as your finances allow.

Kitchen Update.
For maximizing the value of your home, kitchen updates are essential. Even small kitchen updates will add big value to your home. Many buyers are looking for updated appliances, granite countertops and updated fixtures & plumbing.

Bathroom Update.
Bathroom updates can make a big difference at a relatively low price. For example, replacing an outdated vanity, old plumbing and lighting fixtures or adding a new tile floor will give your bath an updated, modern look.

Professional Cleaning.
A buyer’s first impression is everything. Hire a cleaning service and invest in a top-to-bottom scrubbing.
