Colorado Springs Basement Repair and Waterproofing – The Fourth of July brought smiles and fireworks for most Americans, even for Coloradans despite the rain, hail, and tornadoes that were reported to have accompanied their fireworks. With all this rain, should Colorado homeowner’s check to be sure their homes’ basements are in tip-top-shape? Absolutely!
It was just last week that the Fourth of July brought rain and hail, and Wednesday and Thursday brought flash flood warnings for El Paso County and Teller County. The National Weather Service advised that runoff could potentially flood local creeks and streams and influence the farmland along these freshwater sources.
Some hail that fell in the Colorado Springs area had about a 1 to 1.5 inch diameter! Heading east to Lincoln, the hail falling was even larger, and local law enforcement reported the hail breaking the windshields of nearly 20 cars passing along I-70.
This week should be nice but there is a 10 to 20 percent possibility of rain from Tuesday to Thursday.
What does all this precipitation have to do with the condition of your home? Plenty! If the soil beneath and around your home becomes too moist, it could cause a shift in your foundation.
