Home on Low Land? How to Keep it From Flooding
If you've recently purchased a home located on land that sits lower than the surrounding area, then you need to be concerned about flooding. Even if the home has not flooded in the past, a big storm could cause water to drain into the low-lying land and then into your home. Snow melts in the spring could wreak havoc on your home, too! If you don't want to wake up to inches—or even feet—of water in your basement, then take these steps to prevent your home from flooding.
