For several of these items you’ll need to get out the umbrella or put on a raincoat but it’s well worth it. So let’s start by taking a walk around the outside of the house to see where all that water is going.
2. Check your downspouts. Is water flowing out? Are the extensions in good shape? Where is the water flowing to?
3. Check the area around the house and foundation. Is it damp? Is water pooling next to the foundation?
4. Set up the ladder and take a look inside your attic. Does it smell damp? Can you see water dripping down any of the pipes or vents that go through the roof? Do you see stains on the roofing materials? Is there any evidence of rust on metal pieces?
5. Check all of your windows? Is there water leaking past any of them? Can you feel cold air? Is there condensation between the panes of glass?
