Foundation Leaking in Hartford CT? El Nino Forecast Means You Should Probably Get it Fixed

Foundation Leaking in Hartford CT

Here in Georgia, we have both ends of the spectrum when it comes to precipitation. It seems like we go for months with very little rain, and then all of a sudden something changes and inches fall from the sky. When we’re in a dry spell, it’s easy to not worry about cracks and foundation leaking issues, because there’s no water to create a problem, but with the upcoming forecast, it may be time to call someone who specializes in foundation repair and waterproofing.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has declared an El Nino Advisory for the next several months, meaning that warmer than normal temperatures in the equator region of the Pacific Ocean will bring a different weather pattern to the United States. At this point, they believe there’s a 95% chance that this pattern will persist until the spring season of 2016.

An El Nino pattern brings different weather for various parts of the United States. Some of the northern regions hope for less snow and warmer temperatures this winter, but a look at the forecast maps that the NOAA have published puts Atlanta under cooler temperatures and higher than normal precipitation for the fall and winter.

If the recent dry weather has allowed you to put foundation work on the back burner, it is time to take action. If you have cracks in your foundation or have water issues when it rains, there are several things we can do to take care of the situation. Outside drainage, french drains, foundation repair, waterproofing, sump pump installation, and other steps will upgrade your home so that water is no longer an issue during rainy times. And with the NOAA forecast, those wet days look like they will be arriving soon. For more information, or to schedule a free inspection, contact us.
