Intense rainfalls, heavy winds, ice storms, snap winter thaws… These unpredictable events put our homes at risk of damp, flooded basements, backyard ponding, tree damage and winter slips & falls. Small improvements to your home can provide peace of mind that your home can weather any storm!
Learn about storm-proofing home improvements such as rain gardens, permeable pavement, and backwater valves as well as best practices for maintaining sump pumps, rain barrels and trees. This workshop will help you to understand the work you can do yourself and what is best left to the pros.
