Get Ready for Isaac! – Home Improvement Tips

With the remnants of Hurricane Isaac expected to drop several inches of rain on us this weekend, take some time now and inspect your home to make sure it’s ready:
-Caulk any windows, doors or vents that show cracks
-Make sure your gutters are clear
-Downspout extensions will move water away from your foundation
-Domed plastic covers will keep water away from your basement windows
-Keep valuables off the basement floor if it’s prone to flooding
-A properly graded yard will help the water flow away from your house
-Consider investing in a battery-powered sump pump for your basement so it’ll keep working, even if the power goes off
