Homeowners should be concerned about water seepage, especially if there’s a sudden transition from a warm winter with rain, to freezing temperatures. When water permeates surfaces, such as soil or concrete, and then freezes, the frozen water can expand, causing lots of potential damage. This expansion may result in the cracking of home foundations, driveways, or other structures, allowing new water to seep into these vulnerable areas.
To limit the risk of water seepage during such conditions, homeowners should ensure proper drainage around their properties, clear gutters and downspouts to allow water to flow out and away freely, and consider applying sealants to vulnerable surfaces. Regular inspections and maintenance can help identify and address potential issues before they escalate.
