Waterproof Your Foundation Now to Avoid Dealing With Flood Damage Later

Written by PermaDry on . Posted in Foundation Cracks, Water Damage Prevention

Recently, Seattle and Tacoma residents and officials watched helplessly as torrential rains caused flooding in many neighborhoods. Parts of Washington saw rain and snow totals that were 200 to 600 percent over normal precipitation amounts. The fact is, homes all over the state are at risk of or already suffering flood damage.

Additionally, due to the increased chance of flooding in coastal areas across the US, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has redrawn flood maps. FEMA recently raised the base flood elevations in the Tacoma area by several feet, meaning a new area of homes along Washington’s shoreline are expected to be vulnerable to intermittent flooding.

No matter where you live in Washington, climate extremes and flood-plain changes are your signal to act now to flood-proof your home.

You can prevent water from destroying your driveway and yard—and your home—by following these tips.
