July Storms, Rain and High Winds Rock Michigan Homeowners


Storms during this first week of July have damaged homes across many counties in Michigan. Some areas received record amounts of rainfall, resulting in a wet basement for some homeowners.

With storms of this nature, additional damage to the property can be realized during clean up.  Take a close look at your gutters and down spouts, as well as, your roof and foundation.  Check the foundation both the exterior and the interior.

Areas of immediate water damage is most likely at the window well of either a standard basement window or the egress window and wells.
