Here are some tips to help you avoid water damage in your Leyden Township home:
1.) regular maintenance on your plumbing and roof
2.) replacing your sump pump every 2-4 years
3.) do not buy the cheap sump pumps
4.) rodding your drains and sewer pipe every year, or so depending on your conditions
5.) avoid flushing baby wipes, paper towels, and feminine products
6.) check your windows, door jams, and foundations for signs of water damage frequently
7.) regularly inspect gutters, downspouts, and window wells to make sure there is no blockage and proper draining
8.) check the backs of appliances and look at the plumbing, or water supply lines to check for leaks and corrosion
9.) make sure windows and doors are closed when it is raining especially those leading to the basement
10.) run a slow drip through your plumbing supply lines and into the drains during the winter to keep water moving, so as to prevent freezing of the pipes
11.) keep your cabinet doors on outside walls that have plumbing supply lines in them open during the winter a little bit, because they can freeze even if the room is 70 degrees. Drafts and poor insulation can lead to plumbing supply lines freezing enough to break in an otherwise warm room.
Remodeling in Leyden Township

The flooring in this basement got replaced with tile due to the homeowner's desire to avoid having to rip up the floor again. The homeowner didn't want us doing more remodeling in Leyden Township due his bsement flooding, so they got tile. Basements will flood from time to time so it makes sense to put tile down over carpet or floating floors. If you're going to spend money on a floor you should get tile.
